Swedish pop queen Robyn is about to drop her first solo album in eight years – and some will get to hear it before release.

Apparently a world exclusive, us Aussie fans will be able to hear the album first in full at a series of simultaneous listening parties.

Named after and featuring the track that Robyn penned for the TV series Girls, Honey, Robyn says that the making of the album was deeply personal, and arrives at “this sweet place, like a soft ecstasy. Something that’s so sensual, and so good. I danced a lot when I was making it. I found a sensuality and a softness that I don’t think I was able to use in the same way before. Everything just became softer.”

All three listening parties will take place on Thursday, October 25 from 7pm. The locations are:

The Wickham, Brisbane QLD
The Beresford, Surry Hills NSW
Village Belle Hotel, St Kilda VIC

Honey is out October 26.
