AceShowbiz - Robyn has finally released her long-awaited single "Honey" on Wednesday, September 26, after teasing it last year. The song, which premiered on Annie Mac's BBC 1 radio show, also serves as the title track of the Swedish singer's forthcoming album, which will be released on October 26 via Interscope.
The almost five-minute song features Robyn telling her lover that you can't always what you need, but you can get what you want. "No, you're not gonna get what you need/ Baby, I have what you want/ Come get your honey," she rhymes over sugary beats. "I got your honey, baby."
"Honey" was first heard in an episode of the final season of "Girls", though it was still unfinished at the time. In an Instagram post which she shared last year, Robyn revealed that she allowed Lena Dunham to use the song because she did an amazing job in using "Dancing on My Own" in the first season of the HBO series.
"I was so happy she asked me if she could put another of my songs in the series," the "Do You Know" hitmaker shared at the time. "I sent her some music I'm working on and she picked 'Honey'. It wasn't ready to be released, but we finished this version for her and 'Girls'."
Her forthcoming album will feature nine tracks, including previously released song "Missing U". Also making in the cut are "Human Being", "Because It's in the Music" and "Send to Robin Immediately". During an interview with Time, she says of "Human Being", "The idea of getting to the chorus wasn't as interesting to me anymore. It was like tripping on sadness."
"Honey" will be her first album in eight years, following her 2010 album "Body Talk". The album was chosen as the second best album of the year by Popjustice and Slant Magazine, and the third best album of the year by Entertainment Weekly.
