After hinting at a new album, Röyksopp have finally announced they will release one final album, aptly titled The Inevitable End on November 11th via Interscope and Cherrytree. The album follows their stellar collaborative effort with fellow Scandinavian artist Robyn, who will also be featured throughout the new LP, and will mark their first solo album since 2010’s Senior.
According to Pitchfork, Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland had the following to say about it:
“With The Inevitable End we’ve moved into a darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content. This candid approach feels very both personal, sincere and conclusive… With this album it became clear we wanted to make an album in a classical sense even if it’s the last one we make… We feel like this is a goodbye to the traditional album format. In our consecutive run of albums, we have been able to say what we want to say and do what we want to do with the LP. We’re not going to stop making music, but the album format as such, this is the last thing from us.”
