Robyn Joins Smile for New Single 'Call My Name'

Smile - the pet project of Björn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John) and Joakim Åhlund (Teddybears, Caesars) - is thrilled to release lead single "Call My Name" featuring Swedish pop icon Robyn today.

The song is the fifth to drop ahead of Smile's new full-length studio album Phantom Island which is due out November 19th via Chimp Limbs/INGRID.

Preorder the new album here.

The collaboration on "Call My Name" is a result of Smile's Joakim Åhlund's longtime friendship and working relationship with Robyn. Joakim wrote and produced songs for 2010's wildly successful LP Body Talk and 2005's Robyn album - which marked the start of Robyn's sonic exploration into synth-pop and dance-pop.

For the duo, the addition of Robyn takes it to another level. Musically, the song's ethereal synth-riff creates a shimmering background to Robyn's intense vocals as the drums and bass intensify throughout the songs almost gospel-like climax in the last chorus.
