Robyn win this year’s Hyundai Nordic Music Prize

This year's winner of Hyundai Nordic Music Prize is Robyn with the astonishing album, Honey, released through her own label Konichiwa Records.

"Undeniably a huge pop record, but also a brilliant step forward for Robyn: thoughtful and mature, and a dazzling creative rebirth. Given her international status, Robyn could have returned to pop being happy operate within the algorithms of streaming culture. Instead she has made a complete album, completely at ease with exposing and exploring how she has lived through some of life’s heavier hits, while still getting the asses onto the dancefloor. It pays beautiful homage to disco and house, while knowing when to be stark and sonically adventurous", says the international jury, consisting of Jeanette Lee (Rough Trade), Jude Rogers (The Guardian), Eric Deines (Jagjaguwar) and Stuart Maconie (BBC).
