Swedish pop darling, Robyn has not released new solo material since 2010’s Body Talk until today. “Missing U” is Robyn’s grand return back to music. Teaming up with long-time collaborator Klas Åhlund and Joseph Mount of Metronomy to write and produce the track, “Missing U” doesn’t necessarily break new ground for Robyn. Beginning with a flurry of shimmering synth and four on the floor bass drums, the track sounds vaguely familiar. I had to listen to “Indestructible” to make sure she was not repeating the same vocal melody. It’s close but not quite. Considering how groundbreaking a lot of Body Talk was, this feels like a fairly safe single to remind people she is still here and still great. Now we just have to wait with bated breath for her next move and hope it is a bit more exciting.
