Peter Bjorn and John follow the September 21st release of their first three singles from their forthcoming studio album Darker Days (Oct. 19th, INGRID) with the premiere of the FIRST EVER 3-in-1 music video today. The interactive clip allows the viewer to watch all three at once or select which video they’d like to watch by choosing P for “One For The Team,” B for “Gut Feeling” and J for “Every Other Night.” https://3in1.peterbjornandjohn.com
For the unique 3-in-1 clip, the band worked with longtime visual collaborator Ted Malmros from the Shout Out Louds who has also directed videos for his band, First Aid Kit, Kygo and Lykke Li among others. Malmros is most well-known for having created the music video for Peter Bjorn and John’s timeless hit “Young Folks.” That video went on to win a Swedish Grammis Award and has since been viewed more than 100 MILLION times worldwide, watch on YouTube – https://youtu.be/iArXv64tCJAe, while the song has racked up more than 130 MILLION Spotify Plays and was just included in Rolling Stone‘s “100 Greatest Songs of the Century (so far).”
Deciding to work with Malmros for the videos was easy for Peter Bjorn and John, who have said that their approach to Darker Days was to keep things simple. The new album is their eighth and features the Swedish trio handling all the writing and production for the 11-song LP. The album is out October 19th via INGRID, an artist collective and record label they started in 2012 with a number of fellow Swedish musicians including Lykke Li and Miike Snow and the pre-order is live now – https://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/peter-bjorn-john – with loads of cool stuff including signed gold vinyl, test pressings and more.
