Robyn, Avicii, more are getting their own Swedish postage stamps

Posted on


Sending letters is about to get much more exciting: Max Martin, First Aid Kit, Robyn, Avicii, and Seinabo Sey will be the new faces of Sweden’s stamps.

While all five acts hail from Sweden, they represent different kinds of pop music, ranging from Robyn’s dance-pop to First Aid Kit’s pretty folk. The stamps will be available in Sweden Jan. 15.
