This Must Be It for Röyksopp

Röyksopp, aka Svein Berge & Torbjørn Brundtland, release their brand new single ‘This Must Be It’ through Wall of Sound on October 26th 2009.

Featuring the unmistakable vocals of fellow Scandinavian Karin Dreijer Andersson (The Knife, Fever Ray), ‘This Must Be It’ is the latest single to be lifted from Röyksopp’s highly acclaimed ‘Junior’ album. ‘This Must Be It’ is a fast paced anthemic masterpiece - a thrilling and atmospheric track which fits perfectly with the uniquely haunting vocals of Karin, and it cements both her and Röyksopp’s reputations as two of the most innovative and individual artists in the world today.

Karin says “I got into the song very quickly first time I heard it. The demanding tempo and the space and atmosphere made me start thinking about Kathryn Janeway and her efforts as a captain at the USS Voyager. And it was very hard to resist the Modern talking vibe, I had to do some falsetto choirs too.”

‘This Must Be It’ comes complete with brand new mixes from the likes of Thin White Duke (Stuart Price), Apparat, Danton Eeprom, Florian Meindl, LehtMoJoe, Maxime Dangles, Moguai, Pete Herbert, Rex the Dog and The Bloody sisters (TBS). It also comes with an incredible video directed by acclaimed Swedish directors Andreas & Filip Nilsson (The Knife, Peter, Bjorn & John) which is a semi-biblical story that takes place in an all nude utopic hippy-world.

Röyksopp arrive back in the UK later in the year to headline the following dates:

Thursday 5th November – LONDON - 02 Shepherds Bush Empire
Wednesday 4th November – LEEDS - Uni Stylus
