Robyn and Röyksopp have announced the collaborative mini album Do It Again, coinciding with their upcoming summer tour of the same name

The first single, title track "Do It Again," will be released digitally and through streaming services April 28. The song also serves as the introduction to the new Röyksopp album to be released later this year.

Röyksopp said of the album, "This doesn’t sound like Röyksopp featuring Robyn or Robyn produced by Röyksopp, it’s just something else entirely. The word ‘collaboration’ has never before been more justified in the world of music!”

Similarly, Robyn commented, "It started to feel more like a band thing than songs for a Röyksopp or Robyn album so we're releasing this music together as a band, you could say."

According to a press release, the artists "were inspired by each other’s company and compelled to create something they had never done before, building on the brief moments when they had come together in the past." The two artists have previously worked together on the Röyksopp track "The Girl and the Robot" and Robyn's "None of Dem."

The five-track Do It Again will be released through Cherrytree Records/Interscope on May 26. You can preorder the album and purchase tickets for the tour here.
