After two years of patiently waiting, Peter, Bjorn and John fans can expect a new album out on March 29, 2011. Though, all three have been very busy producing other artists, or releasing albums with their other projects, PB&J have come together to create something fresh for the Spring.
During the making of the currently-nameless-album, PB&J dived into experimentation, and have expressed that they are keeping the electronic sounds at a minimum.
After five albums, Peter, Bjorn and John reflected on how they were going to approach their sixth album in various different ways. Despite having produced their own music during their entire career together, PB&J decided to hire Per Sunding at Tambourine Studios for a new perspective. In addition to having a new producer, this time around, Peter, Bjorn and John will be reverting back to their iconic pop rock style, featuring components of new wave and power-pop.
John explained to Spin that the 11 tracks composing the new album “explore themes of love and hate” and that they have even included a political song that focuses on the Swedish King. Fans should expect the album to be the best of every possible world, after having claimed during their interview with Spin, that in order to “find the gold in every song”, they have created up to 20 different versions of each track.
