They played as his back up band for a show, and he's been quite vocal about how much he likes them, so it's not too surprising that they'd send him something before officially releasing it. Plus, letting Kanye "leak" it through his blog gives them more exposure than giving it to their label or one of the normal music sites. Makes sense to me. I agree that Kanye is awesome (musically, personally he's a douchetard).

I'm just worried that if this is the lead single, the rest of the album may not be all that promising, as I would have ranked this as one of the weakest tracks had it been on the last album...

Pitchfork took a big steamy one on the album today.
Pitchfork: Peter Bjorn and John: Living Thing

Allmusic seemed to like it though:
allmusic ((( Living Thing > Overview )))

Based off of the first single, I have pretty low expectations.

elevated_u2_fan, you shouldnt have been allowed to change your avatar. It gave everything your wrote a built in dry wit, which i quite enjoyed.


and on topic, the new single is catchy, but i can see that wearing off really quickly. I'm already a little annoyed thinking about it right now

Between the new computer and new GOW2 maps, I was too busy with other things and only listened to a couple songs. I'll let you all know what I think when I hear it.j

It was only $9.99 at Best Buy this week though, which is nice.

Looks like you can legally listen to the entire album at Last FM. Direct link:
Living Thing – Peter Bjorn and John – Discover music at Last.fm


I'm listening to it now on CD for the first time. Only a few songs in, but I'm liking it more than I was expecting.

I'm really liking the title track from the new album, 'Living Thing'.

I haven't listened to the album again since my first time through, but that's the one track that's stuck with me. Fun stuff.
