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

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: https://lnk.to/TheFinestPrize Info re "The Finest Prize" comes from the May 2017 RoxBlog interview with Mr. G: http://roxetteblog.com/2017/05/07/en-vacker-roxblog-interview-with-per-gessle/

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.
