In the continuation of Swedish music exports to the U.S., Sweden's I'm From Barcelona have signed on with the U.S. version of Mute Records to release Let Me Introduce My Friends. They'll release the album in the U.S. on March 20th.
And the band is comprised of lots of friends... 29 band members in all. They've packaged up the music as "bubblegum classics filled with extravagant call-and-response backing vocals, shimmering pop spirit and youthful optimism," as Mute puts it.
I'm From Barcelona recorded the album in the home of band member Emanuel Lundgren, who created a DIY ethos with band members bringing lots of instruments in and trying different things to see what worked.
