Last week the legendary Norwegian electronic duo from Tromsø, known as Röyksopp, have shared a video on their website performing their forthcoming single called “Running To The Sea” featuring Susanne Sundfør. Here at Golden Scissors, everyone’s almost the same age. As you can imagine, we’ve grown up listening to tracks like “Poor Lenno” or “Eple,” so it’s really exciting for us when the duo release something new. Check out below what they have to say about this new release, and follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more info about a release date.
“For a long time we’ve been considering an artist collaboration with Susanne Sundfør, and the final anniversary show of NRK Lydverket turned out to be the ideal time and place.
Initially, we thought about performing a pure cover version, but the chemistry and vibes between the three of us was out of the ordinary, which led us to put together a new track from scratch. The song Running To The Sea was written and recorded in two days, just in time for the TV-performance.
Susanne possesses a unique combination of distinctiveness and international talent, unique far beyond the borders of Norway. In addition, she has insightful knowledge on cooking inside a pit dug out of the ground.
Susanne delivered gold on her first vocal take. We still asked her to do another 58 though. These were never used, however, having these unused vocal takes available created an atmosphere of luxury in the studio.”
