The video for Robyn’s Dancing On My Own, the lead single taken from her first of three albums to be released this year, premiered yesterday via Robyn’s official site.

Dancing On My Own’s video is quite different to Robyn’s most recent videos since establishing her own record label, because it looks like it had a much bigger budget and it’s a lot more glossy. The stage set for the performance scenes, similar to those seen in Kelly Clarkson’s video for Walk Away, looks very detailed and the lighting changes add a nice effect. The performance scenes are also very fitting for the video unlike some videos which feature a performance for the sake of it.

The club scenes are shot very well and stick closely to the lyrics of the song. They show Robyn dancing on her own in a club while the people around her are dancing together and kissing before she leaves the club at the end of the video.

While the video doesn’t have many different scenes, it’s nicely edited and really enhances the melancholic atmosphere created by the song itself. It’s also not very eventful but it fits the song perfectly and could help the song become a deserved hit for Robyn.

Dancing On My Own will be released on June 7th followed by the first album of three, Body Talk Pt. 1, on June 14th.
