RoyksoppIt’s that time of year again when the music business gets back on its feet after the excesses of the holidays and the end-of-year parties. What better way to get over those hangovers, get rid of the excesses and feel a little bit better than a spot of dance / electro from the kings of all things electronic in Norway, Röyksopp.

The duo, known to their friends as Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland, are about to release their third album, Junior, on 23rd March, and along with their usual mainstream-friendly anthems they’ve added a few very famous guest singers in the shape of the gorgeous Lykke Li and Robyn.

As a special taster, they’re giving away a free MP3 they made about their birthday (below).

MP3: Röyksopp: Happy Birthday

The 11 track CD is out in just over two months, but expect a fair bit more about this duo from us soon – whilst it took me a while to come across their first album, once I had it was one of those “oh, that song’s by them too!” moments. Their second album (The Understanding) whilst not as commercially successful was still amazing, and one that has a special place in my collection.
