Robyn Hitchcock is the twenty-first studio album by British musician Robyn Hitchcock. It was released in 2017 through Yep Roc. The album, largely rooted in psychedelic rock, represents a stylistic change from his previous LP, The Man Upstairs, which was entirely acoustic.[2]

Reception[edit]

The album received generally positive reviews. Jon Young, writing for Paste Magazine, noted that the album "feels familiar and utterly fresh at once", also being "a perfect summation of the artist, as the title suggests".[3] AllMusic reviewer James Christopher Monger named it "easily his most vibrant collection of new music since the early 1990s".[2]
