Last summer, Swedish indie pop favorites Peter Bjorn and John told David Dye of World Cafe they were working on their first new record since 2011 – though it wasn’t exactly moving quickly, and several sketches of songs had been scrapped.

Today, we got news via Pitchfork that the album is complete – huzzah! – is called Breakin’ Point, and will be releasedon June 10th via INGRID. The album reportedly contains production collaborations with Paul Epworth (U2, Paul McCartney), Greg Kurstin (Adele), and Emile Haynie (FKA Twigs, Lana Del Rey).

The first single, “What You Talking About?”, rocks a fierce four-on-the-floor beat and some swervy new wave production that’s sure to get dancefloors moving. Give it a listen below, and also check out a video for the unreleased “Do Si Do,” recorded live on World Cafe’s trip to Stockholm. You can also hear other unreleased songs “Eyes” and “Breaking Point” in PB&J’s full World Cafe session, via NPR Music.

No word yet on whether those songs are included on the album as well, but hey, the band is teasing further announcements on Facebook…so who knows?
