Album delayed, single announced

STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) - Like The Daily Roxette reported a while ago, due to technical issues the album has been delayed for one week; the new release date is November 23.

  However, the first single will be - in good old Gessle-fashion - a double a-side featuring the tracks "C'mon" and "Jo-Anna Says." Per comments to TDR that it has been hard to find a single as the album goes in so many directions, and that he didn't want one this time. The album has to date not been fully mixed and mastered.

  The release date is November 9 with a radio date of November 7.

  On a sidenote TDR would like to point out to anyone that hasn't already noted - the official Son Of A Plumber and Gessle sites have cracked the door open with the forum so far. More to follow we've been promised.

  And yes, the album is a double… but priced as a single album.

  Per says to Aftonbladet "This is the most beautiful and important album I've ever done." He has recorded around 24 songs, but some of them are shorter than a minute long. He describes the album as original. "And weird, many people will probably think it's weird. It's sort of a homage to the music I grew up with 1968-1972."
