Peter Bjorn And John Set to Release New Album March 29th

Peter Bjorn And John are set to release a new full-length studio album due out on March 29th on StarTime International.  For their sixth album the band chose to work with a producer for the first time ever enlisting the skills of Per Sunding at Tambourine Studios in Malmö.  For a band that has always produced their own albums, this is a big move and when asked about the choice in a recent interview with SPIN John Eriksson said, “ ‘We needed someone who can make us play differently, someone to remember to back up the hard drive [laughs].’”
The new album, a follow up to 2009’s more experimental Living Thing release, is a definite return to Peter Bjorn And John’s pop roots. So the move to work with Per Sunding – a member of the now defunct Eggstone (a band that was once dubbed “the godfathers of Swedish pop”) seemed especially fitting.  When asked Eriksson about the sound on the new album he said, “‘We originally planned to make a punk rock album, but listening to it now it’s definitely a pop rock album. But it sounds more punk rock when we play the songs live!’”
