Lost Tapes

Lost Tapes is a physical album released by Norwegian electronic music duo Röyksopp. The project started in February 2019 as a playlist on streaming platforms like Spotify and YouTube.[1][2] Almost every month, a new track was added to the playlist. Röyksopp kept releasing new ‘lost tapes’ until 25 January 2021, when they announced the project had come to a halt for the time being.[3] A total of 15 tracks were released on the playlist,[4] and as singles in digital music stores like the iTunes Store. The physical album release of Lost Tapes was released on 17 September 2021. It contains the first 10 tracks of the playlist and is available on limited edition vinyl, CD and cassette.[5]


When Röyksopp released their fifth studio album, The Inevitable End, they also stated it was their last album release. It was not the end of the band, but they didn’t want to go on with the album format.[6] New music from Röyksopp was released after The Inevitable End, for example the track “Bounty Hunters” for the Star Wars Headspace project and the single “Never Ever”.[7] Their biggest post-album effort was Lost Tapes though: a collection of B-sides, exclusives and previously unreleased tracks. Some of the tracks on Lost Tapes were released earlier. “Rising Urge” was a hidden track on an Australian release of The Inevitable End. The first CD of that album has a pregap of silence (track zero, found by rewinding from the first track) for 17 seconds, and then the track "Rising Urge”.[8] “Across The Graveyard” was an iTunes bonus track on the album Junior (Röyksopp album)|Junior. “Were You Ever Wanted” was a bonus track on the Japanese release of Junior. “Ice Machine” is a Depeche Mode cover Röyksopp released earlier on their Late Night Tales compilation album. “In The End” appeared on the 2017 vinyl reissue of The Inevitable End.[9] Some tracks were released before as ‘Track of the Month’ on the official website of Röyksopp.[10] However, Lost Tapes also contains tracks that were previously unreleased, like “Church” and “Rescue”.[11][12]
