röyksopp leaked

August 15, 2010

Senior, the fourth LP from Norwegian electro-duo Röyksopp, is described as a moodier sibling to 2009’s upbeat, hook-heavy Junior.

I have always had two minds about Röyksopp, on one hand they have some brilliant tracks like ‘Eple’, ‘What Else Is There?’ and ‘Sombre Detune’ and some not so good tracks (personal opinion), but besides all of that I was looking forward to their latest album Senior to be released especially because it was originally intended for a late 2009 release but Röyksopp pushed Senior’s release date to 2010 in fear that the latter might infringe upon the former’s (Junior) highly successful sales. Senior will play dark to Junior’s light.

Details about Senior have been kept under tight wraps, but rumor has it that fans can expect a more instrumental-heavy album, thick with atmosphere and mood.

01. … and the forest began to sing
02. tricky two
03. the alcoholic
04. senior living
05. the drug
06. forsaken cowboy
07. the fear
08. coming home
09. a long, long way

röyksopp – senior

Note: This isn’t the best leak at 192k but if you can’t wait (like me) for a 320k then this is better than nothing
