The queen of Sweden has revealed the title and release date of her eighth studio album.

Honey – which will include the critically-acclaimed dance-pop anthem, Missing U – will arrive October 26 via Interscope and Robyn’s own label, Konichiwa. It will be her first studio album in eight years.

Her last record, Body Talk (2010), received universal acclaim from fans and critics, and is often regarded as one of the finest pop albums of the decade. It spawned hits such as Indestructible, Hang with Me and the electronic classic, Dancing on My Own.

In a Twitter statement, Robyn said: “It’s a personal album, and there are so many things that happened throughout making it that it’s really hard for me to explain in one go. I think the best way is for you to listen to it.”

She added: “I danced a lot when I was making it. I found a sensuality and a softness that I don’t think I was able to use in the same way before. Everything just became softer.”
