Royksopp will release their fifth and final album, The Inevitable End on November 11th via Cherrytree Records/Interscope. The Inevitable End is Royksopp's most personal album to date and their second album release in the space of six months, following their critically acclaimed mini album Do It Again with fellow Scandinavian legend Robyn.
"With 'The Inevitable End' we've moved into a darker subject matter, with emphasis on the lyrical content. This candid approach feels very both personal, sincere and conclusive," says Svein. "With this album it became clear we wanted to make an album in a classical sense even if it's the last one we make," adds Torbjorn.
Having now created five complete bodies of work, the pair feel like the future is open to being more experimental with how they share their music. "We feel like this is a goodbye to the traditional album format," explains Svein. "In our consecutive run of albums, we have been able to say what we want to say and do what we want to do with the LP. We're not going to stop making music, but the album format as such, this is the last thing from us."
The Inevitable End features Jamie Irrepressible, Ryan James
(Man Without Country), Norwegian singer songwriter Susanne Sundfor
and Robyn. The album is available for pre-order today at all digital retailers.
