Sweden-England at 4. #bästnärdetgäller

När vi träffades i vimlet
Det var ett hat trick att minnas
jag kom från farmarlaget
Du var populär

Du sa du älskade fotboll
Jag såg en sol igenom fönstret
hur kan man låtsas att det regnar
när du ser ut så där?

Journalist Olle Berggren met Per Gessle and asked him about his duet with Nick Lowe, “Small Town Talk”. Per says it's a dream come true. He sent an e-mail to Nick and suddenly he was in a studio in Stockholm and sang “Small Town Talk”. They recorded the song and at night he sat at Per’s home and drank whiskey and told all the amazing stories from the 70's London. It was a fantastic evening. Not long after, Nick invited Per and Åsa to London, where they celebrated “Nick Lowe, 50 years as an entertainer” at a famous London pub. Per says he has loved Nick since he started with Gyllene Tider. /PP The album is out on 7th September: http://roxetteblog.com/2018/06/25/per-gessle-small-town-talk-album-release/ Selfie by Per Gessle: https://www.instagram.com/p/BbM2fiOnt_g
