"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. Two videos were filmed for the song. Kleerup's version shows assorted scenes of life in New York City, while Robyn's version shows the singer walking among colourful building blocks and board game pawns. Robyn wears her trademark neckscarf and tights, which change colour as the song progresses. The CGI animation moves in sync with the music. The song pans out halfway through the video to reveal that Robyn is miniature and in fact on a desk in Kleerup's studio. On display in Kleerup's studio is a vinyl copy of Barbra Streisand's album Guilty. The video finishes with the blocks featured in the video tumbling down while Robyn runs away from them. This version of the video is a tribute to the animation of the highly respected late German artist Oskar Fischinger specifically his work entitled Komposition in Blau.

With Every Heartbeat - Robyn

Maybe we can make it alright
We can make it better sometime
Maybe we can make it happen baby
We can keep trying but things will never change
So I don't look back
Still I'm dying with every step I take
But I don't look back
Just a little little bit better
Good enough to waste some time
Tell me would it make you happy baby
We can keep trying but things will never change
So I don't look back
Still I'm dying with every step I take
But I don't look back
Mmm
We can keep trying but things will never change
So I don't look back
Still I'm dying with every step I take
But I don't look back

And it hurts with every heartbeat
And it hurts with every heartbeat
And it hurts with every heartbeat
And it hurts with every heartbeat
And it hurts with every heartbeat
And it hurts with every heartbeat
And it hurts with every heartbeat
And it hurts with every heartbeat
