Peter Bjorn & John are making their comeback on June with a brand new album , named ‘Breakin’ Point’.
‘Breakin’ Point’ is about the band’s newfound search for another career high. “We started with some other album title ideas – like ‘Thriller 2’. Then we realised we were pushing the envelope so got into the idea of a breaking point. If we broke it once, we can break it twice,” says Bjorn. That’s why the album artwork features a hammer with three heads on it, not just to strike your nightmares, but to send a message out to everyone. “It says – ‘We’re back! We’re smashing it!’ Haha.” In the literal sense, they may be wielding hammers, but how about musically? “Musically, a breaking point is just about working so hard until you know you can’t do any more,” says Bjorn. “It’s about being in that fog when you’re creating where you can’t see. That’s when you find something – the door home, or the door out. You get a chance to turn it around. You have to really put yourself in a big mess to be able to go somewhere new.”
The first single is out now , it’s “Dominos” with a clip coming out within a few days. Till then enjoy this happy vibe! It’s New Music Friday!
