Robyn Played Pitchfork Festival, Released New Single Art and Preps Body Talk Pt. 2

How much more could I wax wonderful when it comes to Robyn? Probably a lot. So in trying to not have every other post here rep her radness, this is a lumped together hit of bits that make me smile, swoon and say "oh hell yeah" in every sense of the phrase.

As mentioned in this morning's Beastly Bits, the Swedish popstar traveled to Chicago to play Pitchfork Festival. Underneath a beating sun, she performed 10 songs, most coming from her latest album. Body Talk Pt.1. If you want to watch her set, in its entirety, head here.

 

Recently, she also announced the release date of Body Talk Pt. 2 and her next official single, Hang With Me, which comes off the first installment. The album gets its proper outing on September 6, with the single debuting the day prior. Additionally, she's just offered up a listen to the Kaiserdisco remix of the song, and it's nearly 9 minutes of amazingness.

  

One last note: Robyn appears and performs on The Late Show with David Letterman tonight. More than likely, I'll link to the video of that in tomorrow's AM link roundup.

Beastly Bits #116

I think the general consensus, being that the weekend seemed to be amazing for all, is that we're already over this work week and primed for another Fri-Sat-Sun stretch of radness.

Until then, we'll power on as be[a]st we know how...with a sprinkling of bits and smiling through the grind...
