Peter Bjorn and John Feb 06, 2019
As you might have heard from the voices on the internet we are indeed dropping a new EP cheekily titled EPBJ (look what we did there). It contains three mellow, moody tracks, all written during work with "Breakin' Point" and "Darker Days" in that time-period between finishing one album and starting the next and sort of seeing where we're heading stylistically. Funnily enough we never finished recording them during "Darker Days", even though one song is even CALLED "Darker Days" and was the key to the albums overall direction! We feel these three songs (also "Bones" and "Saying Goodbye") belong together with this album, like an evolution or appendix of sorts. It’s in the same pocket, lyrically and musically. It's not really the start of the next record. It's a great EP we think! Hope you all will feel the same when it drops (on February 22)! 💀💀💀 #darkerdays #epbj

Rehearsing rehearsing. Just a short energy break now ☕️🍎 #darkerdaystour @ INGRID STUDIOS
Peter Bjorn and John Feb 05, 2019
We are happy that one of our rarer albums, "Seaside Rock" is finally up on all streaming services again! 🎶 https://ingrid.lnk.to/PBJ_seasiderock For a long while it's gone missing apart from certain territories. That's now fixed! This is a special one as you all know. Originally released in September 2008 on just limited vinyl and digital download it was later tagged on as an extra disc on cd with initial pressings of "Living Thing". Since then it's been rare in all formats. Reactions around it has been diverse from the beginning. Some seeing it as pure lunacy and throwing away a prospering pop-career. Others think it's our very best moment. The truth might be a bit of both but we truly love it either way. The timing was weird coming on the heels of the "Writer's Block"-success and was a left-field surprise for most recent converts of the band. To us that was the point; having fun, experimenting in the studio after an intense period of heavy touring, letting off steam and letting our guard down, creating cinematic and evocative instrumentals (maybe for an imagined film?) something we've always talked about doing anyway. We played instruments we couldn't play and sort of approached it a bit like kids just starting out in music. We listened and was inspired by all sorts of exotic music from around the globe but also thought of our hometowns and small home-villages in rural Sweden which fed into the music. We brought in hairdresser Siv from Piteå, Per a saxophone-player from Ruskträsk and Peters grandad Erik, from Vika, Mora, to tell stories in their local dialects on select tracks, almost like different languages even to other Swedes. In all this it might be our most original and definitively most Swedish album and as such its worth to treasure. We performed all of the songs just once at a show in Stockholm. So go listen again to lost classics like "Inland Empire", "Saying Something (Mukiya)", "Barcelona", "School of Kraut", "Favour of the Season", "Needles & Pills", "At the Seaside" and the rest! Enjoy! #seasiderock

STORIES BEHIND THE SONGS - Pt. II Peter about "Dark Ages": John thinks it sounds like a Finnish tango set to surf twang guitars. I think of it at as one of my "Kinks"-songs. I have several of those even though they don't really sound like Kinks at all. More as my own sub-category. It has a spooky quality with the organ and echos. We slowed down the tempo of the whole live-band-take in the computer 'cause it sounded to up. Theres a hint of ”old english” in the lyric here and there. Like a bit of medieval poetry to go with the title. I like that juxtaposition with lyrics concerning the now but still telling it like a troubador ballads tale of a dark past were we spread a disease (like a black death, a plague or capitalism?) and kings (or presidents) are corrupt. I started writing the song sitting in a sandbox with my kid in Ottawa of all places while on tour with the band there to play the BluesFest in 2016. At that point it was just before the US-election and the gloom and doom of Trump. So I didn’t sit down and think that I was gonna write a song to fit a concept of ”Darker Days” ’cause at that point that title wasn’t set or anything. I just wrote what was on my mind and what I thought about right then. But I knew before I wrote both this and other songs on this record, that I wanted to paint on a larger canvas, songs that weren’t just for me but with a larger perspective. Also I didn’t want to have any classic ”love songs” on this record from my pen. And I kept that part of the deal. We, the rich and wealthy and the system and lifestyle we support, willingly or not, IS the problem here. We can’t deny it. We buy and produce too much shit, we earn too much money, we eat too much meat, we fly way, way too much. Me included, just in my work. 82 percent of the world population have never set foot in a flight so we can’t blame them. The system has to be changed. But will that happen? It looks like it won’t. That scares the hell out of me. Choices are hard, people do tend to focus on their own pleasures for the moment and block out the big picture. We all need guide and help in this. Like the song says "lend a friend a hand" and "we're stuck in the dark, no light and no way out". People generally don’t look outside of their own tiny little bubble and see how EVERYTHING is connected. Like in our old song ”Dominos”. One fall and then does all. Back to ”One for the team” again, we have to think about others to help ourself. Egomaniacs won’t save the planet. And if you vote for leaders that you THINK might help you based on one or two details that applies to only yourself and your closest neighbours, you might in the end just kick yourself back there. Like people voting for lower taxes when they already earn tons of money just out of sheer ego. I just don’t get that. We need to distribute the diminishing resources of the planet more even all around. Save "Dark Ages" to your library on Spotify: https://INGRID.lnk.to/PBJ_DarkAges #darkerdays
