Robyn Hosts New Year’s Eve Party on BBC Radio 6 Music
Robyn will see out 2020 in style with a New Year’s Eve show tonight on BBC Radio 6 Music.
The show will mark Robyn’s debut as a presenter, as she takes to the airwaves for a special two hour show from 7-9pm GMT tonight.
A description for the show on the BBC website reads, “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”.
The event runs as part of 6 Music’s festive takeover which has seen an array of musicians presenting shows over the Christmas and New Year period, including Christine and The Queens, Michael Kiwanuka and Goldie. Tomorrow, Ad-Rock and Mike D of the Beastie Boys will kick off New Year’s Day with their Beastie Boys Brunch show.
Robyn took to social media to share the news, adding, “On NYE this year I will be the selector on BBC 6 Music 7-9pm GMT with fire starters and healing tunes. TY 6Music for giving me the maybe 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.”
This year marked the 10 year anniversary of Robyn’s Body Talk album, her seventh studio record which was released in November 2010. It featured huge pop hits including Hang With Me, Indestructible, Call Your Girlfriend anf the iconic Dancing On My Own. The album was named the 8th best record of the 2010s by Pitchfork in 2019.
