Fever Ray Announces New Album 'Radical Romantics'

Hear new single "Carbon Dioxide"

BY Allie GregoryPublished Nov 10, 2022

Having hinted at a new era of Fever Ray to come with recent single "What They Call Us" last month, Karin Dreijer has returned with plans for a brand new album — their first in more than five years. Radical Romantics arrives March 10 on Mute, and today, we're getting another sneak peek at what's to come with new single "Carbon Dioxide."

Teaming up with brother and former Knife member Olof Dreijer, who co-produced and co-wrote four of Radical Romantics' songs, the album finds the musician in a collaborative mood; the record will also feature contributions from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, Vessel, Nídia and more.

With today's release, Dreijer sought to "describe the feeling of falling in love," referencing the happy melody of Henry Mancini's "Baby Elephant Walk" and Anne Morrow Lindbergʼs 1955 essay collection, Gift from the Sea. "I just think that the direction could be nice, happy, full of everything, extra everything," Dreijer told collaborator Vessel during the songʼs genesis.

Listen to their new single below, where you can also find the album's tracklisting.
