Robyn, who will perform on "Late Show with David Letterman" on July 19th, will kick off a North American tour on July 16th with a performance at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. Other tour highlights include appearances at the inaugural Disco Lemonade: Summer Mashup Festival in Toronto (July 30th) and Montreal's Osheaga Festival (July 31st). She'll also play numerous European festivals this summer. See below for itinerary.
MySpace.com will host an exclusive global listening party for Body Talk PT 1 from June 11 – 18. Early reviews have been stellar. "Genius," proclaimed NME. "She's still ruling the school." "Her new CD is the perfect example of how she eschews the norm," said the New York Post. "The dynamic pounds and clicks behind each track are beyond anything that exist in my musical library." Nylon, which ran a four-page fashion feature in its July music issue, noted: "Robyn isn't afraid to be a bit—ok, very—different. And we love that obviously."
A mix of cool electronica, heartfelt pop and tracks that have all the hallmarks of becoming classic club and radio hits, Body Talk PT 1 is the first in a trilogy of albums Robyn will release this year. It is the follow-up to her self-titled 2007 album, which produced the international No. 1 smash single "With Every Heartbeat" and the Top 10 hit "Be Mine." The album was nominated for a GRAMMY® award and ranked in the Top 10 of Entertainment Weekly and Blender's year-end critics polls.
