With Every Heartbeat (4:13)

Cover of NRJ Music Award 2008 [CD2]

From NRJ Music Award 2008 [CD2] and 10 other releases

“With Every Heartbeat” is the second UK single released from Swedish pop singer-songwriter Robyn’s 2007 re-released, self-titled album Robyn. A collaboration with Kleerup, it was released as a non-album single in Sweden and reached #18.

“With Every Heartbeat” is an electropop ballad. The song runs for four minutes and thirteen seconds in its entire form. It is composed in the key of D major, and is set in common time. It has an unconventional pop song structure, with no distinct chorus. The song was composed in Kleerup’s living room, where Robyn came up with the song’s melody. The string parts were originally arranged by Carl Bagge using Sibelius Software.

A physical single was released in the UK on 6 August 2007. It was named as both Jo Whiley’s and Scott Mills’s “Record of the Week” and was A-Listed on BBC’s Radio 1. Robyn performed the song live on Radio 1 during the Jo Whiley Show on 8 August 2007. It also received strong support by Popjustice, who later ranked the single as the best of 2007.

“With Every Heartbeat” was Robyn’s biggest hit in the UK, becoming the first number one, second top ten, and fourth top-40 hit of her career. The song charted inside the top five on downloads alone the week before the song’s physical release. The song sold 270,000 copies in the UK as stated by the Official UK Charts Company.

The song was released in the United States in January 2008.

Athlete, The Hoosiers, and Girls Aloud have all covered the song on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge on separate occasions. Girls Aloud released their version of the song as a B-side to their Can’t Speak French single in early 2008 and they performed it in their live set for the Tangled Up Tour.

Maybe we can make it alright
We could make it better sometime
Maybe we can make it happen baby
We could keep trying but things will never change
