Living Thing is the fourth album by Peter Bjorn and John (not including their instrumental Seaside Rock project), released on March 30, 2009 in the UK and March 31 in the US.[1] Much darker and more experimental than their previous album Writer's Block, Living Thing expands the sound of the group by taking more cues from hip-hop and electronic music. Three singles were eventually released from the album: "Nothing To Worry About," 'It Don't Move Me," and "Lay It Down."
