Trying to contain excitement over the fact that Robyn is recording new music for release in 2014 is an exercise in futility, but today things were pushed over the edge entirely when it became known that the Swedish pixie is currently at the famed Flyte Tyme studios with legendary R&B-pop architects Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. Well, at least she’s in the studio with Jam (real name: James Harris III), who tweeted the above photo and noted, “The awesomely talented @robynkonichiwa blessing our brand new vocal booth with her amazing voice! @FEMNRG #808 #SY85″
I’d sit here and rattle off the HIT after HIT after HIT after HIT after HIT that Jam and Lewis crafted — many of which give me such an overflow of giddy, coming of age nostalgia that I can’t help but grin from ear to ear — but instead I just did you, me and the rest of the world a favor and whipped up a Spotify playlist of fantastic Flyte Tyme jams. Hit play below, and shout out a triumphant, “Minneapolis!”
