The swedish indie-rock trio's 7th album has been 5 years in the making & focuses in on the thrilling pop ethos that launched their career.

previous record 'Gimme Some' was Peter Bjorn and John's “power pop, guitar statement”, focused on recreating in the studio what they were confidently doing live. This time they wanted to do the total opposite. they enlisted the help of a star team of producers including Paul Epworth, Greg Kurstin, Patrick Berger & Emile Haynie in order to bring their sound alive once more. “This was about doing big pop songs,” says Bjorn, who recalls sitting around listening to ABBA with his bandmates, marvelling at how they made it sound and look so easy. "Boom-bap drums, symphonic strings, and piano plinks provide a churning midtempo foundation for Peter Morén’s soaring tenor. These guys sound like they’re ready for a proper comeback" - stereogum.
