BEHIND MONO MIND - from Dr. Robot himself. TELL HIM I SAID HI! The first recording of THISH was sung entirely by Dr. Robot and was called “Tell Her I Said Hi!”. It sounded fab. The sound of Dr. Robot’s voice on the verses on this one is truly amazing. It’s my favorite Dr. Robot-sound together with “Marvingate” and “Down by the Riverside.” However, when I suddenly had lots of Mono Mind-tracks piled up I felt I needed a little bit more “flesh and blood” when it came to the voices so I re-wrote it and re-recorded it and had Cooky join the party and sing on the choruses. I love this one and I especially adore Clarence’s hypnotic piano part in the middle. #behindmonomind

Amazing! /P.

BEHIND MONO MIND - from Dr. Robot himself. We have talked with Per regarding his new baby Mono Mind, and even though there are "no backstories to the new songs" it seems Per did have a few notes and tidbits he could share with us, and you! We have five of these nice stories. Here's the first: IN CONTROL This was the first song we recorded for the Mono Mind-project. At the time I didn’t have the Mono Mind name, the project was called “Honesty Jam” since the guideline was to follow ONLY my gut feeling and instincts (“honesty”) and mash ideas together with other people and collaborators (“jam”). Basically I just wanted to enjoy myself and screw around with my voice and my songs and see what happened. A little bit off-the-wall like the Son of a Plumber-project but, of course, totally different style-wise. The lyrics are actually a poem I wrote in 2013. The music was written on an acoustic guitar just like so many other songs I’ve done. The line “just leave it neat and tidy, no fake, no confusion, no cracks, no beginning, no end” was at one point the album-title since it was used in several songs. I placed it here and there then took it away. Now it’s only “In Control” and “Marvingate” that include it. I think. #behindmonomind

Short interview with Per in Iltalehti (Finnish newspaper) by journalist (and long-time fan) Mari Pudas on Mr. G's 60th birthday. Among other things Per said "it's quite typical that older people want things to be as they were before. It's so simple. But I like the fact that things are changing." Mari asked Per what his advice to 15-year-old Per Gessle would be. Per said: "I would tell him to close his eyes and go. Things will turn out fine." /PP Practice your Finnish and read the interview here: https://www.iltalehti.fi/musiikki/a/5564626b-a3fd-4325-afef-6ebc5a2b3d5f

60 milestones in Per Gessle’s life - RoxetteBlog

Mono Mind interview with Per Gessle à la RoxetteBlog - RoxetteBlog

Together with the Mono Mind press release 2 days ago, there was the opportunity to ask 5 questions from Per about his latest project. 5 might be even too many for most journalists, but too few for a fan who already has more than 30 in her mind. Fortunately, some of my relevant questions were ... Rea...

Per Gessle presents Mono Mind Q&A - Part 1!

YEP, THIS IS THE STORY: ”After basically living in a recording studio for almost forty years I tried to find new ways of creating pop music. I wanted to do something I’d never done before. A new challenge. Still pop, of course (that’s in my DNA!) but created and presented in a new manner. I started fooling around with different gadgets working with my own voice, recording in different octaves and different keys just to see what might pop up. In the end of the day it’s all about the voices. We all focus on the voices when we listen to pop music. We didn’t use vocoders or anything like that. Instead we found ourselves spending days, even weeks “hand-painting” and “drawing” my melodylines in the comouter. For some songs we created my voice in a r’n’b-fashion, others got a touch of Nine Inch Nails-desperation. In the end you couldn’t really hear it was me singing which was a blast and felt really refreshing. So off I went creating a new little colourful band, four characters with different personalities and different kind of temper, humour and looks to represent MONO MIND. How gorgeous! I had so much fun. Still do.”


Per Gessle’s birthday gift for himself and the fans! Per Gessle presents Mono Mind 💥💥💥 Album release 12th of January. Mono Mind consists of four fictive band members: Dr Robot, Cooky Carter, Bright Jones and Rain Davies. Over the last year they have released three singles, all of which have received international acclaim and entered the club and radio charts in both France and US. In US, the success includes a prestigious six-week long first position on the dance chart in the radio industry’s own magazine AllAccess, as well as top spots at iTunes Electronica and Amazon Electronica. In France, Mono Mind were nominated twice in NRJ DJ Awards 2018, in the categories “Best Group” and “The Best Club Hit Of The Year”. Now that Mono Mind is set to release their album all over the world, we can finally reveal that it is none other than Per Gessle who is behind this secret project! The master of pop himself comments: ”I had conceptualised an at least for ME new kind of pop music. I wanted to do something I’d never done before. I wanted to start in something classic but then to lift off and go in directions that I had never gone before, including serious experimentations with my own voice. When I noticed that no one could recognise that it was me singing the idea was born to create a cool, fictive, and animated band with roots in pop art as well as pop culture. It was so much fun!” The album is released on 12 January coinciding with Per Gessle’s 60th birthday as a gift for himself and the fans! 🎉 🎁 💿 🎊 Check out previously released music by Mono Mind: Spotify: https://spoti.fi/2FhmE4e YouTube https://bit.ly/2CXc93l https://bit.ly/2H2ZsIA
