Robyn's Umpteenth Single "Dream On"

Below is the video for Robyn's next single, "Dream On"—this time billed as Christian Falk featuring Robyn & Ola Salo. The track appeared in its original form on Falk's album two years ago...and if I'm not mistaken, a new mix was tacked on to the American release of Robyn's album this past spring, no? To be honest, who can keep track of how many damn singles this broad has thrown out there?

Put a new damn album out! Okay, here's the vid:

This version of "Dream On" gets a November 17 U.K. release.

    D'luv, I was just thinking about posting this a little bit ago!

    I crave new Robyn songs desperately. "Dream On" is brilliant--it would just be nice to have a brilliant song that wasn't, as you say, two years old. Hasn't stopped me from recommending her music to anyone and everyone, and this video will help with that. I love the twist(s). And some of the shots are just fantastic.

    Still, new songs, please! Please! (And U.S. success with this one? Hope springs eternal, all realities notwithstanding.)

    (Though I guess it's only been, what, three [and a half] years in reality? Waiting that long between albums isn't unusual, I know, but it still feels like it's time.)

    I would blame the ignorance of the US public in Robyn's failure to break through here, but it seems like Cherry Tree only catered to the converted masses when they promoted her release here. Still, this is good stuff, and while it hurts us spiritually, yay to Robyn for maximizing the ROI for that set of recordings.

    PG, yeah, even she must be completely tired of the same old material.

    John, I guess that's the benefit of running your own indie label (on her end, not Cherry Tree)...you get to do more promotion than a normal big label would allow.
