Although Robyn and Mr. Tophat have known each other personally for nearly a decade, the first time they professionally crossed paths was last year, when the latter contributed a few remixes of material from Robyn’s EP with La Bagatelle Magique, Love Is Free. “I wasn’t making my own music at the time, so he forced his way into my studio and said, ‘We’re going to make music now,’” Robyn recalls the beginnings of the pair’s creative process. “It was really nice for me to be submerged into his world and lose myself in something that wasn’t my own.”
Joining Robyn and Mr. Tophat in the studio is Abba’s original drummer, Per Lindvall, who the latter met through a friend at National Swedish Radio. Listen to their luscious new collaborative effort Right Time below.
