Swedish pop icon Robyn on a track with a duo Smile

‘Call My Name’ is a new song by Swedish duo Smile lifted to another level by Robyn that linked with the band as a result of her longtime friendship and working relationship with Smile’s Joakim Åhlund’s. Joakim wrote and produced songs for 2010’s wildly successful LP Body Talk and 2005’s Robyn album – which marked the start of Robyn’s sonic exploration into synth-pop and dance-pop.

‘Call My Name’ is the fifth to drop ahead of Smile’s new full-length studio album Phantom Island which is due out November 19th via Chimp Limbs/INGRID.

When asked about adding Robyn to the track Joakim says,

We’ve had the song knocking about for quite some time, but when Robyn sang it, she really lifted it to another level, her vocal is just packed with so much emotion. ‘Call My Name’ is a quite simple song about unconditional love, and the will to try and protect the one you love from a chaotic and threatening outside world. When we wrote the song we were both directing the words to a child, but I suppose one can imagine it being sung to a lover as well, or any person you feel strongly about.
