I Spåren Av Tåren ('In The Tracks Of My Tears') is the second solo album by Swedish musician Peter Morén of the band Peter Bjorn And John, and his first in Swedish. This decision was made by Morén to enable him to include more precise cultural references and more freedom in his choice of lyrics. It was released in March 2010, having been recorded Summer and Autumn 2009. The album spawned one single, 'Esther', which was released in January 2010, preceding the album by two months and accompanied by a video. The Spotify version includes a 10-minute interview with Morén, who as well as singing plays many of the instruments on the album. While Morén's first album The Last Tycoon focused more on folk and folk-rock, I Spåren Av Tåren has a more classic rock and soul influenced style.
The song 'Att Komma Ikapp' was later translated into English for Morén's 'Broken Swenglish Vol. 1' EP as 'To Catch Up With You'. 'Esther' and the title track (renamed 'Hit Where It Hurts') were translated for the second EP in the series.
