Fever Ray Radical Romantics

Radical Romantics, the first new album from Fever Ray in more than five years, will be released on March 10 via Rabid Records. Vessel co-produced the single “Carbon Dioxide,” which is available now. Fever Ray depicts the struggle of Radical Romantics with love, or more specifically, the myth of love. Radical Romantics, which followed 2017’s Plunge, appeals to the mind and heart, the dance floor, and the bedroom. One of pop’s true visionaries, Dreijer transforms common, unimaginative clay into endlessly beautiful, terrible forms that balance security and anxiety with strength.

After finishing the final Fever Ray tour in 2018, Dreijer began work on Radical Romantics in the fall of 2019. He did so in the Stockholm studios he and his brother and fellow The Knife member Olof Dreijer had constructed. Olof joined Dreijer in working on Radical Romantics sometime in the middle of 2020, co-producing and co-writing the album’s lead single, “What They Call Us,” released last month to a flurry of praise, as well as three additional songs. The siblings haven’t produced and written music together in eight years until the songs on Radical Romantics.

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails, Portuguese DJ and producer Ndia, Johannes Berglund, Peder Mannerfelt, and Pär Grindvik’s technicolor dance project Aasthma, and the aforementioned experimental artist and producer Vessel are additional co-producers and performers. Martin Falck, a longtime collaborator, works with Dreijer to create the complete visual world of Fever Ray during the Radical Romantics.
