Sweden's Amason have shared a new song, "Marry Me Just For Fun," via a video for the track. They have also announced their intentions to release a double album in two parts, so essentially they are releasing two albums, with the first one due out August 16 and part two due out in spring 2020. "Marry Me Just For Fun" is the second single from the first part. No other details, such as the album title or tracklist, have been shared yet. Watch the video below.

Petter Lennstrand directed the "Marry Me Just For Fun" video, which features puppets. A press release points out that Lennstrand "trained with acclaimed Swedish director and puppeteer Michael Meschke at Stockholm's beloved Marionetteatern puppet theater."

"Marry Me Just For Fun" follows the album's first single, "You Don't Have to Call Me," which was shared in April and was one of our Songs of the Week. Then they shared a video for "You Don't Have to Call Me."

Amason's excellent debut album, Sky City, came out back in January 2015 on Fairfax Recordings/INGRID. Amason's members also play in other notable Swedish bands and are Pontus Winnberg (Miike Snow), Gustav Ejstes (Dungen), Petter Winnberg (Little Majorette), Amanda Bergman (Hajen, Idiot Wind), and Nils Törnqvist (Little Majorette).

Previously Amason also did a P3 Session (a Norwegian radio program on NRK P3) where they performed "You Don't Have to Call Me" and "Ålen," with the latter song morphing into a cover of Kendrick Lamar and SZA's "All the Stars," from the Black Panther soundtrack. Check it out here again.
