Breakin' Point

Album: Breakin' Point (2016)
  • Saw it in Jesus, saw it in Superman
    Got it from whiskey like any loser can


    Well, that can mean just about anything. Fortunately, Peter Morén (the Peter of Peter Bjorn and John) explained the meaning in his Songfacts interview. "It's about what's going around in your mind when you're expecting a child," he said. "Maybe you've seen this and that and hit some physical and mental dead ends. What will happen now? Will this new person fix it or f--k it up even more? Or neither. Anxiety and expectations."
  • This is the title track to the trio's seventh album. It was their first released on their own label, INGRID.
  • Emile Haynie produced this track. Some of his other credits include "Blue Jeans" by Lana Del Rey and "Are We All We Are by Pink."
