In October, Robyn released her first album in eight years -Honey. The Swedish singer likes to do things on her own terms, deciding on her schedule and working with a wide range of artists, from successful chart-pop producer Max Martin to rap icon Snoop Dogg.
From Lorde to Charli XCX, she has become a role model for strong female recording artists. Katy Perry famously called her “the epitome of effortless cool”. And in 2017, Lena Dunham, the creator and star of the TV series Girls, asked her to premiere her new songHoneyin the final season of the show.
Now 39, Robyn tells The Red Bulletin why independence is crucial to every career – and how slowing down can help get you up to speed.
