Gyllene Tider

Gyllene Tider’s single to be released “twice” next week

STOCKHOLM - The upcoming Gyllene Tider-single will be "En sten vid en sjö i en skog" after all, and it will be released in exactly one week - next Wednesday. But there's "another" single as well.

  It's an old Gyllene Tider tradition to release double A-sided singles; it started with "Flickorna på TV2/Himmel No. 7" and continued with "Ska vi älska så ska vi älska till Buddy Holly/(Dansar inte lika bra som) Sjömän." Now, this new single will follow that tradition by including two tracks: A-side "En sten vid en sjö i en skog" and the A-side: "Tuffa tider (för en drömmare)" (Tough Times (For a Dreamer)).

  "It's been like going on a very much longed for school trip recording with the Gyllene-guys again," Per Gessle says. "We recorded 15 songs down in Skåne and 14 have made it to the album. Half of them feel like strong singles so it's been almost impossible to select a single. So we picked two!"

  "Tuffa tider" includes a ukulele and an ocarina, while "En sten…" is a power-pop song á la Gyllene Tider.

  The Daily Roxette will stream the new songs on Sunday at midnight CET.
