Robyn has been the soundtrack to all my important moments in my early twenties; nights out dancing with friends, break-ups, reconciliation, countless encounters and one of the best gigs I’ve ever been to. She has, as an artist, been on a fascinating journey, and her music is so often a conversation, with the listener, with other artists, with the wider world. And she is, without doubt, one of the seven coolest people in the world. To highlight her innate talent, here is a list of tracks in which Robyn has collaborated with a range of artists. AM

Trust Me, Mr Tophat ft. Robyn
Robyn and Mr. Tophat have apparently known each other for almost a decade and both team up on this song. Described as layered and attention-grabbing by Pitchfork. Robyn’s vocals are not a strong presence throughout this track but are instead  flashed across the track amidst the music.     Mr Tophat, Trust Me EPHang Me Out to Dry, Metronomy ft. Robyn
Hang me out to dry is an indie track from Metronomy’s latest album, Summer ’08. Directed by filmmaker Dent De Cuir, the quirky yet interesting music video features an abandoned lover haunted by memories that she sees in the surfaces around her. The video’s stand- out quality is the transition from whimsical to aggressive.
