Per’s 60 for 60. #26 Far Too Close. One of the duets Per recorded in Nashville, Tennessee. This one he sings together with Savannah Church, of the Church Sisters. A beautiful ballad about – you guessed it – sad love… This was meant to be recorded with Alison Krauss, but Per met her in the elevator at the hotel and she was furious (at someone else) so he didn’t dare asking her to sing. Instead he asked someone at the studio if they knew of any good voice that was similar to Alison’s. Savannah came up. She nailed the song in 20 minutes. Per asked her if she ever sang out of tune. Savannah didn’t understand the question! There’s a remix of this on the “Small Town Talk” vinyl album that’s not… good… “Being alone was never known to be easy” #per60
