INGRID (Featuring Lykke Li, Peter, Björn & John, members of Miike Snow, Jocke Åhlund, Nicole Morier) will be performing at the Roskilde Festival this summer. Check out a clip of them performing “Harlem Boyzz” off of Andrew Wyatt’s new solo album at the 30 minute mark: http://release.roskilde-festival.dk/
Hard at work writing new music, but excited to step out of the studio and get back into the festival world at the amazing Sziget Festival. Tickets are on sale now and available here. Get ready, Hungary!!
So we are about to hit that Christmas-coma very soon.
But before we do, we just won’t let you forget.
10 years ago (on November 20th to be exact, which makes
it about 10 years and a month ago) we released our very first
full-length album simply called PETER BJORN AND JOHN.
It’s our most rare one since it’s never been released properly in some territories.
We recently made a vinyl gatefold re-issue of it!
In fact this album has never been out on vinyl before!
Get your own Christmas-copy from Drella here;
At the same time we did a reprint of our second album FALLING OUT as well,
check out here;
Cheers to the next 10 years and let’s have a listen to some of the tracks from the debut on Youtube,
a live version of this,
A fan-video of this;
and some other songs from the album;
Now from all of us to all of you…freak out!!
Peter Bjorn And John have been pretty busy lately.
Not that you can tell from the amount of, or rather lack of blogging here.
But you must have heard of the label/artist-collective they set up with some friends called Ingrid?

Among the PBJ-related-releases on Ingrid we have the fantastical Smile-project with Bjorn and Jocke Åhlund;
check out some videos;
and Johns Hortlax Cobra-alter ego with the amazing album “Night Shift”;
check out his videos too;
The latest release has been Peters new swedish-spoken pop-opus “Pyramiden” which have got rave reviews in Sweden. Check out his two latest videos as well;

He will soon head out on a Swedish tour.
All Ingrid-releases are up on itunes and Spotify in most territories and

Also Ingrid did a show with the whole collective at Gothenburgs Way Out West-festival this last august.
The whole thing was filmed and are edited this very moment.
For now you can check out two songs on Youtube including this Coco Morier-nugget;
But what about pure PBJ-activities.
Well they did this nice remix for Norah Jones;
and recently their song for the latest season for Yo Gabba Gabba was premiered over at NPR;
They also did a semi-secret-show jamming with Franz Ferdinand this summer.
But what else?
It seems not much..
Until now that is.
Since I know everything I’ve heard they’ve been rehearsing new songs.
That’s all I know though. And now you know too.
All the best from GOD
