Secretly Canadian Signs JJ, Announces Release Date for jj nº 3

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.
