Listen to the new album before its release on September 13th.
Got to love Soundcloud!
From the press release:
“Röyksopp release ‘Senior’ – the counterpart to last year’s critically acclaimed album ‘Junior’ – on the 13th September. More introspective and freeform than its poppier partner and fully instrumental, Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland recorded ‘Senior’ at the same time as ‘Junior’ and it finds Röyksopp in fine form.
Röyksopp explain: “The two albums (‘Junior’ and ‘Senior’) have a kinship, in that they represent Röyksopp’s two very different artistic expressions. ‘Junior’ – with emphasis on vocals, accessible melodies and harmonies, has the energy, the inquisitive temper and confident “hey-ho, let’s go!”-attitude of youth, whereas ‘Senior’ is the introverted, dwelling and sometimes graceful counterpart – brimfull with dark secrets and distorted memories, insisting “I’m old, I’ve got experince…”. Senior’ is furthermore an album about age, horses and being subdued – with devils breathing down your neck.”
