"…a massive modern disco tune, a brilliant surprise and a good lesson in unselfconscious pop creation, knowing your audience and being familiar with precisely how broad that audience’s tastes are” - Popjustice
“A grand, dizzy dance-pop love song with big, bright keyboards that explode from every possible corner of the track.” - Stereogum
“… a funky, fidgety electro-pop blast.” - Shortlist
Following the success of Röyksopp’s first release since deciding to stop making albums, ‘Never Ever’, the duo have today released a four track bundle of the single which includes a new edit and a 2-part ‘Excursion’ dub mix.
"'The Excursion' is a different take on the song, for those who wanna go deeper. Ears open, eyes on the road…” - Svein Berge
‘Never Ever’ featuring Norwegian singer songwriter Susanne Sundfør, is out now. The single entered the Spotify Viral Chart Top 50 at Number 28 and now has over 4 million plays.
‘Never Ever’ bundle tracklist:
1) Never Ever (feat Susanne Sundfør) (Original)

With ‘Never Ever’ Röyksopp leave the sadness behind and mark the start of something new. The duo released their final album ‘The Inevitable End’ in 2014 and pledged that it would be their final full-length record, thus completing their six album cycle. Röyksopp have released 6 full-length studio LPs, all of which were UK Top 40 albums.
2016 marks the 15th anniversary of their classic debut ‘Melody AM’ that cemented Röyksopp as one of electronic music’s leading lights. Since then they have gained worldwide acclaim and success with two Grammy nominations, a Brit nomination and winning seven Spellemannprisen Awards.
Röyksopp will play a DJ gig at London’s Bankside Vaults on Friday 25th November.
