Robyn’s Chic Volvo Commercial Features New Röyksopp Collab “Monument”: Watch

As one of Sweden’s most famous exports, it’s only fitting that Robyn was chosen as the new face of Volvo. The 34-year-old stars in a new mini-movie (ie. commercial) for the car manufacturer, which finds the “Do It Again” diva driving along the tidy streets of Stockholm at night, doing her groceries in killer kicks and staring at a girl on a bus. It’s all very sleek, stylish and scandinavian.

Another reason to watch the Max Vitali-directed visual is the soundtrack. The video features a new Röyksopp collaboration called “Monument” and, like everything else we’ve heard from their Do It Again EP thus far, it’s an icy synth-pop gem. You can’t hear Robyn’s vocal in the commercial, so perhaps it’s an instrumental. Watch up top if you love cars, Sweden or great music.

Did Robyn make you want to buy a Volvo? Let us know in the comments below.
