  1. Falling Out

    Falling Out is the second album by Peter Bjorn and John, released on October 4, 2004. While no videos were released, three singles were derived from the album; the promo-only single for Tailormade and full releases for Teen Love and It Beats Me Every Time. The last track on the album, 'Goodbye Again, Or...' is of very low quality in all formats, due to the only recording of the song coming from lead singer and guitarist Peter Moren's mobile phone- added to the album on the last day before mastering. During the tour for his first solo album The Last Tycoon, Moren has performed the song acoustically in an extended form featuring a harmonica solo. Wichita Recordings, responsible for later re-releases of the band's early work, later re-released this album with bonus tracks taken from the singles derived from the album, in the same manner as their debut work. The bonus tracks on this re-release included the extra tracks from the 'Beats, Traps & Backgrounds' EP and 'Fortune Favours Only The Brave', from the 'Teen Love' single. The single covers are notable for being composed entirely of text in the same font as that on the monochrome album art, which itself is a homage to The Velvet Underground's third, self-titled album. The all-text theme carried over into the band's live shows, with the backdrop printed with the word 'Backdrop' repeating endlessly over it, and the amplifiers decorated in the same manner.
