Monia Sjöström releases Per-penned song

STOCKHOLM – Swedish singer Monia Sjöström’s new album “Söderns hjärtas ros” (Frituna CD: 584798 2) starts off with the track “Mannen med gitarr” (“The Man With the Guitar”) written by Per Gessle. The track is the regular Per-style pop-rock we have gotten used to. (A few seconds of the song can be heard in the TV-spot shown on Frituna’s site). Other contributors to the album include Mauro Scocco, Nisse Hellberg (of Wilmer X) and Peter LeMarc.

  Monia was previously the lead singer in the dance band Grönwalls, but has since gone solo. This is her second solo album. Her first, released two years ago, was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, USA.

  “Söderns hjärtas ros” is produced by Micke “Nord” Andersson and Kjell Andersson.
