The Robyn album rollout campaign continues. For fans of the pop singer who haven’t quite come to terms with the idea that she is actually going to release her first, full-length album in nearly a decade just next month, today, the Swedish star has decided to offer a little more evidence, sharing the single “Honey” from her album of the same name.
If the song itself sounds a little bit familiar that might be because you actually have heard it before. Last year, Robyn decided to allow Lena Dunham to use “Honey” for an episode of the final season her HBO show Girls. “After Lena used ‘Dancing On My Own’ in the first season of Girls, in the most amazing way, I was so happy she asked me if she could put another of my songs in the series,” she explained in an Instagram post 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.”

After Lena used Dancing On My Own in the first season of Girls, in the most amazing way, i was so happy she asked me if she could put another of my songs in the series. I sent her some music im working on and she picked Honey. It wasnt ready to be released, but we finished this version for her and Girls ❤. Thank you @lenadunham for making this tv-show that flips my brain like a burger like 15 times every episode, i love that feeling! And for bringing up all these emotionally complex situations in such a brilliant way, without making excuses. And thank you for asking me to make music for your work. I wouldnt want to miss out on making music for Adams movie for anything. :) #girls
The finished version, which she shared today has been altered since it’s appearance on that series, but you can finally listen to it below. Robyn’s full album Honey is set to be released on October 26 via Konichiwa and Interscope Records.
