Röyksopp announces their new single “Sordid Affair” featuring Man Without Country available now. “Sordid Affair” is taken from the fifth and final album The Inevitable End out November 11 from Arts & Crafts.
“Sordid Affair” is a sophisticated and delicate song which Ryan James from Man Without Country sings throughout with heartbreaking intensity. Röyksopp explain the track as “A recollection and contemplation of the emotional aspects of the endeavours as described in the track title. The difficulties of letting go of emotional attachments – even those of a questionable nature.” (LISTEN AT http://show.co/hmFiV5A)
The Inevitable End is most personal album to date from Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland, the electronic music overlords in Röyksopp. It is also their second album release in the space of 6 months, following the critically acclaimed mini album and sell out tour ‘Do It Again’ with fellow Scandinavian legend Robyn. Along with Man Without Country the album also features Jamie Irrepressible, Norwegian singer songwriter Susanne Sundfør, and Robyn.
“With The Inevitable End we’ve moved into a darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content. This candid approach feels very both personal, sincere and conclusive.” says Svein, “With this album it became clear we wanted to make an album in a classical sense even if it’s the last one we make,” adds Torbjørn.
