Robyn was dismayed by pop

Robyn hated being pigeonholed by the music industry and was delighted to break off from the mainstream.
Great deals on musical instruments

Robyn used to feel "disgusted" by the pop industry.

The Swedish singer hated the way she was grouped in with other female stars after the success of her single 'Show Me Love' in 1996 but didn't realise there were other ways to bring her music to the public.

She said: "I never enjoyed being interviewed by super-cheesy teenage magazines that were so far off where I was coming from. The pop industry, they just had one solution for everyone, and I felt quite disgusted by that. I started to rebel against it, but I never realised I could just not be in it."

Following the success of her first album - 'Robyn Is Here' - she decided to record a song for her second album about an abortion she had in her teens.

She admitted: "I was scared of being without a record deal. I was very, very lost for a while."

After the success of her 2007 UK number one single 'With Every Heartbeat' Robyn was then propelled into a life of seemingly never-ending tours - something else she wasn't comfortable with and which has influenced her decision to bring out her next batch of songs on three records, starting with 'Body Talk Pt. 1'.

She said: "When I came off tour, the idea of being in a studio for another year, making an album, touring it for three years, just felt depressing. I decided to release the album in parts so that I could get something out quicker."
