Icona Pop’s “We Got The World”: Hear Their Latest Pop Banger

Swedish too-cool-for-school pop duo Icona Pop‘s upcoming Iconic EP was already shaping up to be an absolute monster, with rollicking lead single “I Love It” and electro track “Ready For The Weekend.” Now another track from the upcoming EP has debuted, and it might be their strongest to date — an uptempo dance track with pummeling house beats that has shades of Calvin Harris, plus Robyn at her most euphorically carefree. If “I Love It” didn’t quite cross over to mainstream, “We Got the World” has definite hit potential.

“They say ‘You’re a freak’ when we’re having fun / Say ‘You must be high’ when we’re spreading love / But we’re just living life and we’ll never stop / We got the world, we got the world,” the girls sing over a coruscating house track. It’s an explosive pop single that shows why these Swedes are one of the most hotly tipped new groups of the year. Listen to the new track after the jump.
