Robyn is making her way back the U.S. this summer and she's bringing along Norwegian electronic duo Royksopp! The trio are hitting the road together on their "Do It Again" tour, which includes six North American dates.

The U.S. tour dates begin at the end of June in Seattle, then making stops in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, before ending in Boston in mid-August.

In a statement on the tour's website, Robyn says, "We’ve done shows together here and there and it’s a pleasure to be on tour with Svein & Torbjørn. I love them. I can’t say much about my set right now – I’m working on a lot of music at the moment and whatever is finished might be something I put into the set list. As usual I just hope people want to dance. I see pink lasers."

The electronic music duo add, "Performing together is something we've occasionally done in the past - all to such merriment and exuberance, that we've decided to reunite and 'Do It Again' in 2014. Each of these events will consist of a Robyn-part, a Röyksopp-part and of course a joined Robyn+Röyksopp-part - all wrapped up in lights 'n smoke and tons of joy. To say we're excited, is an understatement."

The Swedish dance/pop artist is already teasing her new music, which can be heard in an official promo video for the tour in the form of a tune called "Say It."

The new dates mark Robyn's first trip back state-side since joining Coldplay as the opening act on their 2012 tour.  Pre-sale tickets for the U.S. dates are available starting April 9th.
