Robyn Distills Pop to Its Purest Form on Beats 1 With ‘Set Me Free’
The jubilant new single will appear on her upcoming EP with La Bagatelle Magique
Last we heard from Swedish icon of cool Robyn, she’d dropped an awesomely gnarly, rave-worthy banger called “Love Is Free.” Well, she followed that up on Thursday by premiering a new song from her upcoming EP, La Bagatelle Magique, on Beats 1 that’s much more in-line with her old-school pop roots.
“Set Me Free” continues the apparent liberty-loving naming convention from the first track, but soars with a gleeful, bubblegum beat and infectious, soothing “coos.” In lesser hands it could be a little too sugary, but Robyn gives the peppy track just the right amount of edge. Stream it on Apple Music.
