Following Cannibal, the dance-pop track serves as the fourth preview of the Icelandic multi-instrumentalist’s upcoming LP, ‘Shiver’, which is set to arrive this Friday (October 2) via Krunk. Robyn said in a statement:
“Salt Licorice is such a cute and perfect pop song. It makes me want to dance violently and make out at the same time.
“It was a no-brainer to say yes to singing it with Jónsi. The pretty emails I get with a thousand emojis in them from him is a bonus that came with our collaboration as well!”
Jónsi’s last solo full-length was 2010’s ‘Go’, but in the meantime he has put out a brace of albums with his band, Sigur Rós, the most recent being 2013’s ‘Kveikur’.
Robyn, meanwhile, collaborated with SG Lewis and Channel Tres on the single Impact in August.
