Bolstered by their newly RIAA-certified double-platinum single “I Love It,” Swedish duo Icona Pop Tuesday (July 23) unveiled the album art, title and release date for their debut LP, This Is… Icona Pop, set to drop on September 24 via Record Company Ten/Big Beat Records.
MTV News declared “I Love It” featuring Charli XCX a heavy contender for “song of the summer” back in May, and over the months since it hit the U.S. as the theme song for “Snooki & JWoww,” that highly danceable jam has delivered.
The song sold more than 2 million copies in the U.S. and has been covered by everyone from fellow song-of-the-summer crooner Robin Thicke to Brooklyn punk band Titus Andronicus. It first went gold in April.
When we spoke with Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo in May, the girls assured us that they had some good tunes on the horizon. “It feels like we got a lot of good music coming up,” Jawo said. Hjelt added, “Of course its pressure, but I’m more inspired I think, and now we can show people what we have to offer.”
And on Tuesday, the pair delivered on their promise by delivering their second club-ready single, “All Night.”
The band departs on their first North American headlining tour, Iconic Tour, on August 2, making an appearance at Chicago’s Lollapalooza Festival. The tour also includes K.Flay and Sirah. For a full list of tour dates, visit Icona Pop’s website.
