Eight years since her last full-length, Honey is the long-awaited comeback from Robyn.
Now 39 years old, the Swedish dance pop legend is still miles ahead of the game. Pulsing and throbbing with hypnotic urgency, there’s always been something druglike about Robyn’s songs, which latch onto every single human emotion with laser precision.
Incorporating seemingly every era of the club, from disco and house to trance and EDM, Honey is a master class in seamless dance music that’s universal in appeal and singular in the rainbow of feelings it elicits.
