Robyn - Robyn Was Depressed Before Royksopp Collaboration

Swedish dance star Robyn headed into the studio with fellow Scandinavian musicians Royksopp in a bid to combat a bout of depression.

The two artists and tour mates recently joined forces and released a collaborative Ep called Do It Again, and Robyn reveals the recording sessions helped to pull her out of a dark place emotionally.

She tells Britain's Nme magazine, "I was super-tired and kind of depressed and had started therapy.

"I really wanted to make music, and I had lots of ideas, but I didn't want to force anything, or create a concept of what the next album was going to be; I just wanted to collaborate with people."

Robyn had previously worked with electronic duo Royksopp on their 2009 song The Girl and the Robot.
