Röyksopp unite with Astrid S on new Profound Mysteries release "Breathe"

23 March 2022, 11:36 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Röyksopp have joined forces with fellow Norwegian artist Astrid S for their latest Profound Mysteries outing "Breathe".

"Breathe" marks Röyksopp's first collaboration with Astrid S, and will feature on their Profound Mysteries project with earlier outings "This Time, This Place…." featuring Beki Mari, "Impossible" featuring Alison Goldfrapp, "The Ladder" and "(Nothing But) Ashes…", and is accompanied by yet another Jonathan Zawada-directed video.

Astrid S said of the collaboration, "I have always wanted to collaborate with Röyksopp, they have been and continue to be a huge inspiration for me. I’m really excited for the music to finally come out!"

Profound Mysteries is described in a press release as "an expanded creative universe and a prodigious conceptual project." It will include a 10-track record, and will follow their 2014 album The Inevitable End, which was called their final album due to the pair wanting to say "goodbye to the traditional album format".

Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland said of the project, "As human beings, what we don’t know vastly overshadows what we do know. As teenagers, we would discuss our own fascination and preoccupation with the infinite and the impossible – the most profound mysteries of life."

"Breathe" featuring Astrid S is out now. Röyksopp's Profound Mysteries project will be available on 29 April, and is available to pre-order now. Visit the Profound Mysteries portal at
