The iconic alt-pop singer is set to close out 2020 with a two-hour show from 7-9pm.
Robyn is set to make her presenting debut on BBC Radio 6 Music tomorrow, December 31 - hosting a special New Year’s Eve party.
“Lose yourself on the living room dancefloor as ultimate alt-pop icon, Robyn, makes her 6 Music presenting debut by taking listeners on a cosmic trip through two hours of massive tunes this New Year’s Eve,” a description of the show reads.
“From effortlessly cool beats to loud and proud anthems, the Queen of the Sad Bangers takes charge of 6 Music for one night only, and we are delighted to embrace her wild, weird and wonderful world!”
“On NYE this year I will be the selector on BBC 6 Music 7-9pm GMT with fire starters and healing tunes," the Swedish singer tweeted.
“TY 6Music for giving me the maybe the best gig ever. It’s been a shitty year so it feels special to select music for this NYE which is always, whether we want or not, a symbolic day.”
Robyn returned in 2018 with comeback track 'Missing U' and album Honey, her first full-length studio project since 2010's iconic Body Talk.
"Honey may not dominate the charts this year, or next. But just as ‘Dancing On My Own’ inspired records like Carly Rae Jepsen’s Emotion, it’s not fanciful to think that what we hear here could dominate in 2022," Stephen Keegan wrote in his 9/10 review of Honey for Hot Press.
