Modern Anthem 009: Charting The Songs We Love So Well

Artists often take time to release new music but some may feel like Swedish icon Robyn is taking longer than most. Beloved for her melodies, cutting-edge style and electric live performances, she’s kept fans interested with collaborations and singles over the last few years, but with no word of a new album. At the start of June, Robyn posted a tweet marking an important anniversary: eight years since the release of her single ‘Dancing On My Own’. With its thumping electro production and heartfelt lyrics, it was everything fans loved about Robyn’s music distilled into one perfect pop package.

Feature: Music Robyn – Reinvention – Calum Scott

By 2010 Robyn had successfully re-invented herself as a new kind of star, one who made great music but also one who worked in the music business on her own terms. In late ’90s she had been snapped up by RCA records who spotted her teen-pop potential. Her debut album Robyn Is Here, produced by Max Martin, spawned hit singles in Sweden and brought her worldwide notice, thanks to the single ‘Show Me Love’.

About GCN

It’s our bumper Pride issue and we’ve got so much in store for you, we hardly know where to start! First up on our cover are the gorgeous Glória, Dublin’s lesbian and gay choir and star donators to our GCN30 exhibition Fundit campaign, who talk to us about being one great big alternative family. It’s appropriate, since the Dublin Pride theme this year is ‘We Are Family’ and in keeping we talk to groups of friends who consider each other kin, while Justin McAleese talks about our need for solidarity as the Pope’s visit to the World Meeting on Families excludes LGBT families. We remember the tragic murder of Declan Flynn, which sparked the first gay rights march in Ireland, and reflect on the situation facing LGBTs in Latin America, where brutal murders take place every day. We get educated on Intersex issues and talk to Minister Katherine Zappone about the governments LGBTI+ Youth Strategy, the first of it’s kind in the world. Plus Rupert Everett talks to us about his love for Oscar Wilde and growing older as a totally out actor. And that’s just the beginning of what’s on offer. Get reading now!
