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: Selfie by Per Gessle:

So many Roxette hits live. Join the Joyride, folks. Tour info at - Badabam from P.

DID YOU KNOW? 🤔 "The Finest Prize" was originally written for Roxette's "Good Karma" album, but Marie and Per never worked on it for several reasons. So even if the song came out first as "Första pris" in 2017, the "original" version is "The Finest Prize". ;) When translating it into Swedish, Per "tried to capture the same lyrical idea about a woman and a man living in their own universe. Content and strangely unaffected by life’s rewards". There are several English demos recorded at Tits & Ass. 🎶 Hopefully, we get to hear them one day. 🎶 /PP Listen to the song here: Info re "The Finest Prize" comes from the May 2017 RoxBlog interview with Mr. G:


Thanx for listening to my new single ”The Finest Prize”. I wrote it in 2014 for Roxette’s Good Karma-album but we never recorded it. Then I translated it into Swedish two years later and it became ”Första pris”. Now, the original version is coming out of the closet. Me=Happy. Have a fab weekend y’all! /P.

Halmstad har bästa stranden i Sverige – igen Halmstad Svenska folket har sagt sitt – den finaste och bästa stranden i hela vårt avlånga land finns i Halmstad! Ledtråd: Den börjar på T. ... och slutar på ylösand. När svenska folket sagt sitt står Halmstad och Tylösand som vinnare av Sveriges bästa och finaste strand – för andra året i rad. – Vi som bor i Halmstad har aldrig tvekat om vilken som är Sveriges finaste strand, men att även resten av svenskarna håller med är nog det bästa betyg man kan få, säger Elisabeth Haglund, VD på Hotel Tylösand, i ett pressmeddelande. I fjol fick stranden dela på förstaplatsen med Böda Sand på Öland, men i år står Tylösand som ensam kung av sand. – Vi säger stort grattis till Tylösand som är väl värda en förstaplacering. Några av framgångsfaktorerna är självklart den fina sandstranden, den härliga semesterstämningen men kanske framför allt Hotel Tylösand som erbjuder pulshöjande after beach, bra restauranger och fina rum med utsikt, säger Lina Eklund, PR-specialist på Resia som tillsammans med SIFO står bakom undersökningen, i ett pressmeddelande.

Svenska Yle's audience chose the best summer songs. “Sommartider” by Gyllene Tider is the winner! 🎶🌞🎶 Per tells the song was ordered by the record company and he finds it difficult to write songs on order. If you listen to other tracks on the album, “Puls”, you can hear that all other songs are much different vs. “Sommartider”. It’s incredible that this song is still around since 1982. Per says summer is sacred in a way. In the North it’s so short and the most important season so you simply have to try and take advantage of it. 🌞 /PP


HERE COMES THE DVD!!!! A great evening to remember and cherish! /P.
