Robyn is the fembot that won’t stop—since last appearing in Seattle at Neumos last November—the show that SW’s Best Of issue named Best Concert of the Past 12 Months—she’s spent 2011 collaborating with Rye Rye, shooting a stunning dance video for “Call Your Girlfriend,” and continuing to tour relentlessly, including a somewhat controversial stint opening for pop tart Katy Perry. Earlier this year, the Swedish diva caused a bit of a stir in the blogosphere when Time Out New York asked if she was a fan of Perry and she responded, “You know what? I have to go now.” This fall, Robyn isn’t having to play second fiddle to anyone anymore, as she’s on a headlining tour that will hopefully include a first taste of some brand-new material—she’s said that she’s already finished writing new songs for the follow-up to 2010’s universally acclaimed Body Talk.
