Today, Robyn releases her new single “Missing U,” her first new music as a solo artist since Body Talk in 2010, via Konichiwa/Interscope Records. One of the most highly-anticipated songs of 2018, “Missing U” was recorded and written in Paris and Stockholm, and sees Robyn teaming up Joseph Mount (Metronomy) and long-time collaborator Klas Åhlund (Robyn, Charli XCX, Madonna) to write and produce the track.
“‘Missing U’ is a song about this trippy thing that happens when people disappear, it’s like they become even more clear and you see them everywhere,” says Robyn.
Accompanying “Missing U” is a short film Robyn created with director Danilo Parra on a recent trip to New York, reconnecting with fans at a long standing Robyn club night. She confesses “Missing U” is “also a little bit of a message to my fans, that I’ve missed them”.
“Missing U” was premiered today by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1. Listen to the full interview here.
