Robyn To Get A U.S. Release, Says Entertainment Weekly

The new issue of Entertainment Weekly has the mag's fall music preview. Nothing much new in there, but there's an accompanying write-up on "The 10 Most Exciting Artists Now," which includes the recent Swede of reinvention, Robyn. Apparently her album will be out in the States via Interscope on December 4. This might be old info, but, you know, once it's in EW, that means it's sexy. "Coming back to the States with people not remembering me is not a problem," Robyn tells the weekly rag. "I feel no pressure, but I do have 10 years of experience. I'm right where I want to be."

The link to the article above contains a stream of Robyn's "Handle Me."

    I liked her first album and the work she did with Christian Falk. Unique voice.

    I was fortunate enough to get to remix her second single ("show me love") back when she first came out.

    New song is great.

    Great news for Team Robyn! I wonder when "Every Heartbeat" will be released here?

    entertainment weekly (ie my bible) likes Robyn? But they had my back with a c rating for the darren hayes album. I feel used and betrayed. Morning after used and betrayed

    I hate music reviews in popular magazine. They seems NOT to get music that's out of the pop realm. I'd rather go with a Spin or a Rolling Stone reviewer.

    I follow reviewers that have the same taste (or similar taste) in music that I have. For me, that's the only way to get a consistent opinion.

    El Marveloso, you have me curious! Are any of these yours?

    I agree, I rarely follow reviews in mags -- especially that EW one of Darren Hayes (Boo, Paul, you WHORE :P where the writer clearly didn't listen to the whole album/like pop music.

    Yuri, it'll likely pop up as a single on iTunes in the fall very quietly. Although, Interscope...that's pretty big.

    I remember EW getting behind Annie two years ago, and she wasn't even on a major label here. We shall see....

    I'd love it if the album ended up having some sort of major release--the idea of being able to just walk into a music store around here and buy it would probably be more than I could handle. And I'd probably end up buying it again.

    PG, I've been checking Virgin here for it lately, but they never have the import... guess I shoulda just ordered it online months ago. So, when it finally comes out here, it'll be all new to me.

    No J'ason, none of these mixes are mine. The mix I did was promo only. I did find another blog with a link to my mix (how odd!)


    (sorry, can't get the blog to show the link properly, but I see that you posted a comment on the blog).

    And, by the way, I did not name the mix "So Gay So Good". That must have been a review from EW.

    Can we dare hope for a Robyn performance at the Troubadour or the El Rey?
