Robyn - Behind the scenes of "Dancing on My Own"

Biography

She is Robyn. The most killingest pop star on the planet. A pint-sized atom bomb dosed to the tits on electric and dispensing wisdom in three-minute modernist pop bulletins on the post-adolescent condition.

The dust has barely had time to settle since the arrival of Body Talk 1, the first instalment of Robyn's ambitious three-part album release plan for this year. Lead single Dancing ... Read more in Amazon's Robyn Store

CD Description

Body Talk is the follow up to Swedish pop star Robyn's 2007 eponymous debut album (which featured the hit singles "With Every Heartbeat" and "Be Mine"), and is released in three different parts. This initial BodyTalk (Part One) includes the same blend of electro and pop, includes the single "Dancing on My Own" and production credits from the likes of Royksopp and Diplo.

BBC Review

Swedish riot-pop grrrl Robyn plans to release three albums in 2010, and well she might–it's now five years since her self-titled triumph surfaced on her own label Konichiwa, enslaving bloggers and buying public alike with its sass and synth smarts. With Every Heartbeat, her alliance with DJ Kleerup which appeared on the international release of the album, even topped the UK singles chart in 2007, but Robyn–a keen guest artist on other people's hits–has kept her own powder dry these last few years.

It's logical then that she's been amassing stockpiles of material, but three whole albums? You'd have to worry about diminishing returns. Instead, Body Talk Part 1 (Parts 2 and 3 to follow as summer turns to autumn and autumn to winter) triggers the sense Robyn's holding something back.

There's no doubt she's made some good use of her extended holiday–early trio Fembot, the single Dancing on My Own and Cry When You Get Older are scorchingly catchy, and laced with Robyn's familiar cordial of sparkling hook mixed with unutterable poignancy. The thing is, it's alarming when the first instalment of a trilogy houses so much filler.

Dancehall Queen is superfluous, fairy-light cod reggae–forgotten UB40 protégé Bitty McLean is an unlikely role model for a toughed-up pop survivor like Robyn–and the Röyksopp collaboration None of Dem is a barely more convincing dub excursion. This one's particularly disappointing in the wake of their last team-up, 2009's fantastic The Girl and the Robot. Bumptious intro track Don't F****** Tell Me What to Do implies the return of 2005's "killingest pop star on the planet", but conviction tails off.

After half an hour, Part 1 peters out with folk song Jag Vet En Dejlig Rosa, which is pretty enough but really a soft lullaby to put us into hibernation for Part 2. Let's hope that one's more about Fembot's Daft Punk punch and Dancing on My Own's wounded chimes than Dancehall Queen's ersatz skank. Robyn's more real than that. --Matthew Horton

Robyn released one of the most finest body's of work in 2007 with her self titled record, it was so vibrant and different than anything i had heard at the time and still ranks as one of the greatest pop albums of the last decade.
Body Talk (Part 1) indicates that we haven't heard all the best of her yet and we have some truely amazing synthy dance pop numbers and some soothing balladry acoustics towards it's conclusion. Robyn has made a wise decision of releasing a trilogy of albums this year and i really hope the world opens up to her more as this 8 track disc is some of the finest pop tunes contained on a disc. we already have Gorillaz Plastic Beach and Christina Aguilera's Bionic providing the finest in the music scene this year with their sensational albums (and i mean beyond amazing!)Body Talk with this first disc alone ranks up there with those as the best in music this year (alongside Kelis' fantastic Flesh Tone album too!)and it looks as though we're going to have MIA joining the ranks when she releases her third L.P Maya in July!
but here is soothing pop bliss that shows Robyn has the Artistic Ambitions of Madonna and the synthy edge of Annie Lennox.
dance pop is captured at it's finest here with our Swedish pop Princess!
BRING ON Part 2!!
10/10 A* quality!

I first heard Robyn around the time her album 'Robyn' came out, which was when I fell in love with her song 'With Every Heartbeat'. Ever since I've been wondering what she has been up-to, trying to find some new material of hers. And look what comes along.

The 'Body Talk Series' is a 3 part album by Robyn, with Part1 being my favourite so far (I do own Part2 as well). This album really for me, brings something fresh to the music industry. I think Robyn's always been underrated, but this album surely deserves the 5*'s I've given it. The first track 'Don't F**king Tell Me What To Do' is a bit of an odd song. I think I wasn't expecting Robyn's latest album offering to be quite as futuristic. This song is rather repetitive, but it sure is catchy and grows on you.

The second song, 'Fembot' is possibly my favourite Robyn song of all time. Its a really good listen, with the chorus sounding very pop orientated, while the verses are fast paced and almost rapping in a sort of computer voice. Its strange, but if you like electro/house/dance then your sure to like this record.

The third song, 'Dancing On My Own' is the first and last single from Part1 of the Body Talk series. Robyn's vocals really stand out on this one for me, and the beats of the song are amazing too. But for me, it lacks something. I think it might be that the beat doesn't change much between the chorus' and verses. Which makes it a bit same-ish.

The other tracks on the album are great, with 'Cry When You Get Older' being a funky electro type song which really makes you want to dance. 'Dancehall Queen' is a little flat and boring for me, and kind of brings the album down a little. But its still listen-able, just not what I'd have thought would best compliment the rest of the songs.

Robyn has done it again, another fantastic album.

It is always nice to hear somebody who can do dance music that actually says something, and Robyn can.

Great lyrics with great tunes, means I would recommend this.

An enjoyable album from start to finish, that combines all music genres. Robyn is an electic minx who pushes musical boundaries to the masses effortlessly. I am now awaiting the Part 2 album eagerly.

Robyn has quietly sneaked into the dancefloor with this really great Body Talk Part 1. She is in the league of her own here. Electronic dance music at its best! All killers, no fillers.
