Robyn’s new single ‘Honey’ is here – listen now

Come get your honey

Robyn’s new single, “Honey”, is finally here.

The track has attained a near mythical status among Robyn fans – in late 2016, Lena Dunham asked the Swedish pop star if she would giving her an original song specifically for an episode of Girls. The track that Robyn gave her was “Honey”, which she’d been working on for a couple of years already. 

After the episode was aired, fans latched onto the song and started a social media campaign with hashtags like #ReleaseHoneyDamnit. Robyn, according to the song’s press release, couldn’t let go of the song and reworked it to be both the title track of her new album and its linchpin.

“No, you’re not gonna get what you need,” Robyn sings. “But baby, I have what you want / Come get your honey.”

“It’s not produced or written as a normal pop song,” Robyn said of the track on the New York Times. “It is totally based on this idea of club music... When you’re listening to club music, there’s no reward. The reward isn’t, ‘Oh, here’s the chorus, here’s the lyric that makes sense.’ You have to enjoy what it is. You have to enjoy that there’s no conclusion.”

“Club music taught me so much about myself,” she added. “Having patience, or appreciating a different type of way of taking in life.”

Honey is out October 26. Check out the track below.
