Watch Robyn’s New Short Film for Upcoming Single “Missing U”
After teasing the song last week, Robyn has released a new 7-minute short film in anticipation of the release of her upcoming single “Missing U,” which is due out August 1. The mini-documentary, directed by Danilo Parra, centers around the fans who run and attend “This Party is Killing You,” a Robyn-themed dance party in Brooklyn, and captures Robyn herself attending the party and meeting fans. Part of “Missing U” is played at the end of the short film.
“‘Missing U’ is a song about this trippy thing that happens when you disappear, like they become even more clear. You see them everywhere,” Robyn says in the video. “It’s also maybe a little bit of a message to my fans… that I’ve missed them.”
In February, the singer hinted that she would release a new album—her first since 2010’s Body Talk—by the end of the year. Robyn’s last single, “Honey,” came out in 2017, and was debuted in an episode of Girls. Watch the “Missing U” clip below.
