From The Journeys of Röyksopp

As mentioned in a previous post, Norwegian electronic music duo Röyksopp released a new album recently entitled "Junior" along with first single "Happy Up Here." The second single "The Girl and the Robot," featuring Swedish pop singer Robyn, will be released May 25. Now on their website (and embedded below) you can view a quirky promotional video featuring clips from the album and an interview with the duo—Torbjørn Brundtland and Svein Berge—directed by Andreas Nilsson entitled "From The Journeys of Röyksopp." The video is accompanied by the caption:

A friend of mine, a wise man from Sweden, once said to me:
“Sometimes 1+1=3. Or 12. Or perhaps not even a number.
Sometimes 1+1 could equal a horse.”
Even more confused?
Then check this out…

At the very end of the video is a special (and surprisingly catchy) marching band version of "Happy Up Here"!
