The single follows “Rusty Nail” released on October 18th with the news of the band’s 20th year anniversary, ninth full-length studio album “Endless Dream” out 13th March.
While first single “Rusty Nail” is a Bjorn Yttling-penned track that draws inspiration from a Swedish children’s song. “You trade toys, and if you get the rusty nail instead of the teddy bear, it’s not so fun,” Yttling chuckles. “Reason To Be Unreasonable” is a Peter Moren-penned song that is a classic relationship parable with the easily identifiable Peter Bjorn and John sway. Optimistic by nature, when asked about the song Peter said, “it’s about when you’e been in a relationship for a really long time, and you feel like it’s worth fighting for through the ups and downs. That can be applied to the band, too – a really long thing that keeps on giving.”
As we enter a new decade in 2020, the band enters their 20th year together – an accomplishment for any relationship, especially in the music business. The Swedish trio have endured and triumphed over their two-decade long career and Endless Dream exemplifies the band’s creative chemistry and ability to continue to create undeniably catchy indie-pop tunes. Recorded at the INGRID Studios in Stockholm, Endless Dream is their ninth full-length studio album and third LP to be released via INGRID.
