The world can fit what it knows about the Swedish duo jj in a modest, blood-spattered blunt.
In late December we announced that Secretly Canadian would be releasing the follow-up to jj’s acclaimed, marijuana-leaf-emblazoned breakthrough, jj nº 2. Submitted for the approval of the Internet’s bated ears we bring you, “Let Go” from the forthcoming jj nº 3. Listen to the track HERE.
jj nº 3 will be released on March 9th in North America on Secretly Canadian.
Tour Dates (all performances with The xx except when otherwise noted):
The Swedish band JJ released a summery pop album in 2009 that captivated every music fan who was lucky enough to come across it. Pitchfork.com nudged them out of obscurity by proclaiming the album, jj nº 2, Best New Music, and the album landed on many 2009 best-of lists.
While still shrouded in mystery, jj has joined Secretly Canadian to release their next full-length, jj nº 3, on March 9th in the United States (UK date TBA), in conjunction with Scandinavian label Sincerely Yours.
