Peter Bjorn & John – “I Wish I Was A Spy”

Since 2011’s Gimme Some, Peter Bjorn & John have been kicking around in various combinations and doing sundry things: The covered the Strokes for our STROKED comp as a unit; Björn released music as Smile (with Teddybears’ Joakim Ahlund); the three re-teamed to lay down a remix of Norah Jones’s Danger Mouse collabo “Miriam”; and chances are, probably other life activities that don’t come up via a search of our tag archives. But this here is the first bit of new and previously unreleased studio music the Swedish pop juggernaut’s put out in a bit, and while it is for the children’s show Yo Gabba Gabba!, it’s a pretty full-on, energized two-minute romp. Hear it at NPR.
