Röyksopp announce their first single “Sordid Affair” featuring Man Without Country available now on Cherrytree Records/Interscope. “Sordid Affair” is taken from their fifth and final albumThe Inevitable End out November 24th.
“Sordid Affair” is a sophisticated and delicate song which Ryan James from Man Without Country sings throughout with heartbreaking intensity. Röyksopp explain “Sordid Affair” as “A recollection and contemplation of the emotional aspects of the endeavours as described in the track title. The difficulties of letting go of emotional attachments – even those of a questionable nature.”
The Inevitable Endis Röyksopp’s most personal album to date and their second album release in the space of six months, following their critically acclaimed mini albumDo It Again with fellow Scandinavian legend Robyn. The album also features Jamie Irrepressible, Norwegian singer songwriter Susanne Sundfør and Robyn.
“With ‘The Inevitable End’ we’ve moved into a darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content. This candid approach feels very both personal, sincere and conclusive.” says Svein, “With this album it became clear we wanted to make an album in a classical sense even if it’s the last one we make,” adds Torbjørn.
Röyksopp are one of the biggest electronic acts in the world winning seven Norwegian Grammys (Spellemannprisen) and five Norwegian Music Prize Awards (Alarmprisen) as well as a nomination for Best International Group at the Brit Awards and Best Remix at the Grammys. The duo have had four number one albums in Norway withDo It Again debuting at number fourteen on the Billboard 200 marking the highest album chart position ever for a Norwegian artist. Röyksopp have created remixes for the likesof Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Kings of Leon and Depeche Mode and also headlined some of the biggest festivals in the world- most recently performing their 2014 sold outDo It Again Tour with Robyn.
