Robyn is back, and back on form*

Bloody hell, it's good to have Robyn back. And after last year's cold and austere collaboration with Royksopp her new material is warm, celebratory and primed for the dance floor.

Described as "a love letter to early 90s house music", Love Is Free is the first single from her new project Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique, comprised of her touring bandmate Markus J├Ągerstedt and the late dance producer Christian Falk.

Funky and fresh, the track draws on the Swedish star's love of hip-hop as much as her pop inclinations. "I'mma give it to you baby / I'mma give it like a mother / Safe like a rubber," she drawls in that tiny helium voice of hers. "We're all over this city / Sometimes in the nitty / Sometimes in the gritty."

In a parallel universe where Betty Boo is the world's biggest pop star, this is her triumphant new single.

There's an interview with Robyn and Markus over on FACT magazine if you want to know more about their new mini-album.

*Not that she ever really went off the boil, but you know what I mean.
