Royksopp – Running To The Sea feat Susan Sundfor

Speaking of running to the sea I will be leaving for Ko Phi Phi, Thailand in a few hours from Chiang Mai. You may have heard of this wondrous place in the event you ever watched “The Beach” with Leo DiCaprio. Ok so onto the music:

From Royksopp:

“For a long time we’ve been considering an artist collaboration with Susanne Sundfør, and the final anniversary show of NRK Lydverket turned out to be the ideal time and place.

Initially, we thought about performing a pure cover version, but the chemistry and vibes between the three of us was out of the ordinary, which led us to put together a new track from scratch. The song Running To The Sea was written and recorded in two days, just in time for the TV-performance.

Susanne possesses a unique combination of distinctiveness and international talent, unique far beyond the borders of Norway. In addition, she has insightful knowledge on cooking inside a pit dug out of the ground.

Susanne delivered gold on her first vocal take. We still asked her to do another 58 though. These were never used, however, having these unused vocal takes available created an atmosphere of luxury in the studio.”
