Norwegian electronic duo Röyksopp have declared that their upcoming LP, appropriately entitled The Inevitable End, will be their last release to adhere to the traditional album format. We’ve already heard “Skulls.” Now they’ve shared the Jamie McDermott collab “You Know I Have To Go,” a gently pulsating electro-torch song bathed in floating synth and anchored by McDermott’s soulful, all-too-human vocals. On their website, Röyksopp offer a few words about the song: “The attraction and the doubt; the dilemma as whether to succumb to one’s feelings or not. The sheer length of the track is meant to illustrate the prolonging internal struggle between reason and lust.” You can listen to it over on theinevitableend.com.
The Inevitable End is out 11/11 on Cherrytree/Interscope.
