Statues & A Microphone: Robyn’s Surreal “Ever Again” Video
After an 8-year hiatus, Robyn returned in 2018 with the critically-adored Honey. The album took a while to grow on me, but “Ever Again” had my full attention from the very first listen. The Swedish pop rolls out a video for the slinky synth-pop anthem today (June 17) and it’s an eye-popping affair that finds her — among other things — rolling around in the dirt, humping a microphone stand. Don’t get the wrong idea. This is an arty endeavor, which takes place in “a dreamy place, somewhere undefined, somewhere in my unconsciousness.”
The video was directed by Colin Solal Cardo and choreographed by Maria ‘Decida’ Wahlberg. As for her all-white ensemble? Nicholas Ghesquière designed it especially for the video. (Something tells me, he was influenced by Madonna’s “Papa Don’t Preach” outfit). In addition to unveiling an eyebrow-raising video for “Ever Again,” Robyn also dropped a remix of “Missing U” by Silk City & Picard Brothers. It arrived a couple of weeks ago and it’s a bass-heavy banger. Have a listen below and check out her summer tour dates here.
