Röyksopp "You Know I Have to Go" / "Sordid Affair"
Published Oct 09, 2014Electronic duo Röyksopp recently announced that they were saying farewell to the album format and will release one final full-length in The Inevitable End. Though they're not actually calling it quits, they sure love to say goodbye — a fact that's emphasized further on the new track "You Know I Have to Go."
The emotional slow-burner features vocals from Jamie McDermott of the UK group the Irrepressibles, and offers a lengthy, bummed-out build. A statement from the group chalks the song's structure up to "The attraction and the doubt; the dilemma as whether to succumb to one's feelings or not. The sheer length of the track is meant to illustrate the prolonging internal struggle between reason and lust."
