TEAMING up with The Knife's Karin Dreijjer Andersson, Norwegian duo Röyksopp release their new single This Must Be It on Monday, October 26.

Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland have enlisted the unmistakable vocal talents of fellow Scandinavian (although Karin is Swedish) on the release which comes from the current album Junior.

This Must Be It is fast-paced and anthemic, teaming Karin's haunting vocals with the atmospheric masterpiece - a thrilling and atmospheric track which fits perfectly with the uniquely haunting vocals of Karin, and it cements both her and Röyksopp's reputations as two of the most innovative and individual artists in the world today.

This Must Be It comes complete with brand new mixes from the likes of Thin White Duke (Stuart Price, not David Bowie), Apparat, Danton Eeprom, Florian Meindl, LehtMoJoe, Maxime Dangles, Moguai, Pete Herbert, Rex the Dog and The Bloody sisters.

Röyksopp's new album Junior follows their massive million selling debut Melody A.M, released 2001, the gold certified album The Understanding in 2005 and their hit singles Eple, Poor Leno, Only This Moment and Remind Me.

Röyksopp play at Shepherd's Bush Empire on Thursday, November 5.
