The most recent album from Norwegian electronica duo Röyksopp, Junior, came out earlier this year, and now the group is traveling to the US, possibly for the first time since 2005, for a short set of gigs. Two of those will happen at NYC’s Webster Hall on November 23rd and 24th.

Junior follows the massive success of Röyksopp’s debut album Melody AM and the subsequent release The Understanding.

On their third album the band fuses elements of both their previous albums with a blend of electro, house and collaborations with Swedish singers of the moment Robyn and Lykke Li. The band’s favourite singers from their previous two releases, Norwegian Anneli Drecker and Karin Dreijer from Sweden, also contribute to the new album.

“Every once in a while we surface to share our music and shed some light in an otherwise bleak reality,” says Röyksopp. “Sounds self-centred and pompous, you say? Yes indeed! We’re so confident because this time around we’ve worked with the likes of Robyn and Lykke Li, as well as old time friends Anneli Drecker and Karin Dreijer – hence our enthusiasm!,” explains the boys.
