If you’ve been to a dance floor since 2010, you’ve inevitably danced your heart out to Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.” Robyn’s music catapulted her into a world of massive fandom, but the Swedish pop star hasn’t released any music since her album “Body Talk” came out. “Dancing On My Own” got a new life when Calum Scott sang it on Britain’s Got Talent, and his slowed, melancholy version of it climbed the U.K. pop charts.
However, fans haven’t had much new music from the pop star for many years, with fans wondering if Robyn was even coming back to make music. Well, the wait is finally over when earlier this year, she confirmed that she was working on an album and now we have a new song to fall in love with.
Robyn’s first track in eight years, “Missing U” was released with an eight-minute short film where Robyn says the song is a note to her fans, “I haven’t made an album in eight years, so I haven’t seen my fans for a long time… I had to really do some exploration on what I had to write about again. Learn new things.” For Robyn’s fans, “Missing U” is synonyms with a big hug from a long lost friend saying, “Hey, I’m still here. I’ve missed you.”
“Missing U” has all the makings of a classic Robyn song with its euphoric synth-pop that is masked by the real, sad, and reflective lyrics that fans have come to love about Robyn’s music. And we are ready to dance our hearts out on the dance floor.
