Robyn "Tell You (Today)" (Arthur Russell cover)
Published Sep 03, 2014The latest song to emerge from the impending Arthur Russell tribute album Master Mix: Red Hot + Arthur Russell comes from Swedish pop singer Robyn, who has contributed a version of "Tell You (Today)."
This song comes from Russell's experimental disco project Loose Joints. Robyn embraces the tune's ramshackle strangeness, layering the modern electronic pulse with blaring big-band horns and spaced out laser blasts before the melody flourishes in the excellent second half.
