The most interesting part about this is that Teaser Japanese was released the week before, but Break Another Heart and Run Run Run weren’t released until Feb ’84. Gyllene brought some friends along: Janne Bark guitar, Pelle Alsing (?) extra drums, an unidentified string keyboardist, Marie Fredriksson, Mia Lindgren and Anne-Lie Rydé on backing vocals.
Gyllene Tider will sponsor Drott’s female handball team the next season.
Hold your horses, there are (so far) no plans whatsoever regarding a Gyllene tour next year. Edit: plans have sort of formed, somewhat.
Yes, it’s Fritte’s b-day today!
Directly from Per:
Enkelt. Spela D-ackord med Capo2.
Vers: DAD Gnedgång till Em sen A Hm G A
Refr Em med D som toppton (heter nåt tjusigt) D A
Solo Am Fmaj7 G6 Cnedgång till Am Fmaj7 G-dur
Em med D som toppton heter nog Em7…
Tonartsbyte förstås f o m solot. Allt blir ett helt tonsteg högre. D blir E etc.
It’s our pleasure to wish Micke Syd yet another happy birthday!
Come Friday the 17th Per will appear on the Swedish Norwegian talk show Skavlan.
Personal, poetic, Per. Two new solo albums out soon on Space Station 12!
En vacker natt (A Beautiful Night) out April 28 and En vacker dag (A Beautiful Day) out September 1. The first single is out March 17 and is called “Småstadsprat” (Small Town Talk), a duet with Swedish pop/singer-songwriter Lars Winnerbäck. Two other guests are Linnea Henriksson and Per’s old hero John Holm.
The albums have three duets each. Other titles are “Tittar på dej när du dansar” (Watching You While You’re Dancing) and “Allt gick så fort” (It All Went So Fast). The latter is about how life passed you by so quickly.
“And even though these albums are Swedish, they both end with duets in English, with two female country singers, Savannah Church and Jessica S. This is my homage to Nashville” says Per.
Most of the songs were written after Roxette retired from touring in the spring of 2016.
“All of a sudden my schedule was open, so I started sketching some material of my own again. The records in Swedish are holy to me. The lyrics are really very important, not to say central. They’re about things that we all go through: the transience of life; our hopes, dreams and disappointments; how your era and generation shape the person you become. Each song tells a story of its own. The music is of course equally important. It’s the magical fusion between words and music that makes sure that a song gets stuck in the head and the heart of the listener.” concludes Per Gessle.
