“No, you’re not gonna get what you need/But, baby, I have what you want,” Robyn sings on “Honey,” the second single from her new album of the same name. It’s an apt opening for the highly anticipated track, which was first teased a year and a half ago during the end credits of an episode of HBO’s Girls and resulted in a viral campaign to #ReleaseHoneyDamnIt. Our ears perked up when we heard the Swedish singer’s unmistakable voice in an advance screener of the final season of the Lena Dunham series, but despite our persistence, the network refused to confirm or deny the song’s existence until the episode aired in March of 2017.

Today, Swedish singer Robyn dropped “Missing U,” her first solo single in eight years. Over the last several years, the cult pop star has released a series of collaborative EPs, but the new track is the first official taste of her follow-up to 2010’s Body Talk. (A snippet of another new track, “Honey,” was featured in an episode of the final season of HBO’s Girls last year.)
