Robyn has contributed vocals to new song "Call My Name" by Smile, aka Björn Yttling (Peter Bjorn and John) and Joakim Åhlund (Teddybears, Caesars).

"Call My Name" is lifted from Smile's forthcoming Phantom Island album, and will feature on the record alongside previous singles "Eon", "Kylie", "Different Kind of Fog" and "Dressed for Success".

The new outing features vocals from Swedish star Robyn, marking her first outing since appearing on Jónsi's "Salt Licorice" song last year.

Speaking about the single, Robyn explains, "I love singing "Call My Name" and it was a true pleasure to record it and rave around in this beautiful song together with Joakim and Björn."

Åhlund says of working with Robyn, "We’ve had the song knocking about for quite some time, but when Robyn sang it, she really lifted it to another level, her vocal is just packed with so much emotion."

Yttling adds, ""Call My Name" is a simple song about unconditional love, and the will to try and protect the one you love from a chaotic and threatening outside world. Yes, I think in mine and Björn’s case, when we wrote the song we were both directing the words to a child, but I suppose one can imagine it being sung to a lover as well, or any person you feel strongly about."

"Call My Name" featuring Robyn is out now. Smile's Phantom Island album will arrive 19 November via Chimp Limbs, and is available to pre-order now.
