Peter Bjorn and John Announce New (Instrumental) Album
When Peter Bjorn and John won fans like Kanye and your mom over with the incessantly catchy whistling of "Young Folks,” it was hard to tell if they would be remembered for much more. Now, with the upcoming release of Seaside Rock, we’ll truly find out.

Earlier this year, the band told Billboard that the upcoming release would be all instrumental, and that’s true, aside from some storytelling: "As homage to Peter Bjorn and John's respective hometowns, they wanted to feature the voice and dialect from each of the three areas. So apart from the instrumental soundtrack to the lonely childhood of northern Scandinavia you can also hear three monologues about some sort of seaside. The stories are read by a real saxophone player from Norsjö, a grandfather from Vika and the hairdresser Siw from Piteå.” But the real question is will there be whistling?

Seaside Rock will be out on September 23 as a vinyl-only release limited to 5,000 copies in North America.
