Röyksopp & Robyn, ‘Do It Again’

It’s no coincidence that the first song on “Do It Again,” the new collaborative album from Robyn and Röyksopp, sounds like the intro music for when an artist emerges from the shadows to take center stage. Swedish pop star Robyn and Röyksopp, the Norwegian electro-pop duo of Svein Berge and Torbjorn Brundtland, are going on the road together this summer, and this five-song EP, which sprawls to 35 minutes, arrives just in time for the merch table. “Monument,” that opening salvo, is nearly 10 minutes of undulating rhythms that creep and crawl to create a trance-like beauty, with a faint wash of horns midway in. Like much of this mini album, it’s not thumping music for the club; it’s the soundtrack for when you get home. The title track is more in line with the hands-up euphoria of Robyn’s previous hits (“Dancing on My Own,” “Show Me Love”): It’s a juicy nugget of industrial-strength dance pop destined to be a summer jam. (Out Monday)

ESSENTIAL “Do It Again”

Robyn and Röyksopp perform at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion on Aug. 22.
