In 2002, Astralwerks released Röyksopp's seminal debut album, Melody A.M., which established the Norwegian duo as one of electronic music's leading lights. Since then, they have gained worldwide acclaim and success with two GRAMMY® nominations, a Brit nomination and winning seven Spellemannprisen Awards in Norway. All of
Röyksopp's six studio LPs have charted in the Top 40 of the U.K. albums chart. Upon releasing their final full-length album, The Inevitable End, in 2014, Röyksopp pledged to return with new music in other forms. With "Never Ever,"they returned to Astralwerks and made good on that promise, beginning a new era.
