It has been almost a year since I first wrote about Running To The Sea; Röyksopp’s collaboration with fellow Nordic artist Susanne Sundfør.
The Scandinavian duo first premiered the track back in November 2012 during a live performance, celebrating the 10 year anniversary of Norway’s Lydverket. The studio edit was then made available to download on iTunes (since removed) but now news has got around (via this Popjustice briefing) that it is being readied for a re-release on 17 November.
The combination of Susanne’s distinctive vocal and the band’s beautifully alluring music really is something to behold, and it’ll apparently be reissued with new b-sides and a Villa remix.
Let’s also take this opportunity to share equal enamour for Röyksopp’s The Girl & The Robot which features Robyn and remains fundamentally excellent. Video below. Meanwhile Fans of Susanne can watch her latest video for Among Us, released this week, right here.
