Röyksopp released critically acclaimed new album ‘The Inevitable End’ on 10th November 2014 and entered the UK album charts at number 29 and Electronic iTunes Chart at number 1.

‘Skulls’ was the first track taken from the album, a song that comes with an invitation and a stark warning, set amongst squelchy bass lines and filtered synths. Röyksopp and long time collaborator Norwegian director Stian Andersen have made a haunting black and white film to accompany the song.

“The Skulls video was shot deep inside the woods of Northern Norway. We filmed in this amazing old house which belongs to 83 year old Adolf who also stars in the music video.” (Stian Andersen)

‘The Inevitable End’ is Röyksopp’s final and most personal album to date, and their second in the space of 6 months, following the critically acclaimed mini album and sell out tour ‘Do It Again’ with fellow Scandinavian legend Robyn. ‘The Inevitable End’ features Jamie Irrepressible, Norwegian singer songwriter Susanne Sundfør and Robyn.
