Nearly six months after the track made its premiere online, Robyn’s “Love Is Free,” the first single from the Swedish singer’s La Bagatelle Magique project, a collaboration with Markus Jägerstedt and the late Christian Falk, finally gets an official music video. It’s not hard to see why it took so long: The intricately choreographed clip, directed by SSION, opens with Robyn and guest artist Maluca having a slumber party, but dreamy flashes of a soundstage quickly reveal that things aren’t what they seem. Robyn and Maluca wander off their bedroom set and storm adjacent film shoots, the only constant being a bubble bee crawling over cookies and cupcakes and landing in the palm of an actress in a foreign art-house film. In a tribute to Falk, who passed away last year from cancer, the producer/musician is seen on a monitor in brief glimpses throughout the video performing with his band Imperiet.
