Robyn is ''back from the wilderness'' after a two year break.
The 'Dancing On My Own' hitmaker decided to take some time out of the spotlight between 2014 and 2016 so she could undergo therapy but she says she is in a much better place now and is grateful she had the time away.
She said: ''I spent a lot of time in Sweden between 2014 and 2016 because I was in therapy. I was in psychoanalysis for a long time and it was a period where I really decided to give that part of my life the time it deserved. It's something you do three or four times a week, so I didn't travel at that point because therapy is such a commitment.
''One of the ways it has informed me making music is maybe realising how psychedelic it can be to be sad. The record has taken four years to make and I've put everything I've got into it. I came back from the wilderness and in a much better state of mind.''
And the 39-year-old singer felt it was necessary to take some time to ''rebuild'' herself.
She added to British magazine Ponystep: ''I was grieving for my friend who died and grieving a relationship that fell apart. I kind of had to rebuild myself in a way that I hadn't done before. Some people die from sadness, that's a very common thing, right? But if you make it through to the other side, it opens up other doors.''
