Gyllene Tider

New Gyllene Tider single out in January

STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) – Both Aftonbladet and Expressen have met Per Gessle to summarize 2004. In Aftonbladet Per says he will be back in 2006 with new material, “so everyone else should cancel that summer” he says laughing. Expressen writes that a new Gyllene Tider single will be released in January, and that the old albums possibly will be repackaged and put out again, without bonus tracks. Also the documentary DVD mentioned earlier, after that Gyllene Tider goes back to the back burner again. “Quite honestly I’m really sick of Gyllene Tider now and it’s good if that group gets some rest. I’m a solo or a duo man.”

  Per may instead record another solo album in English, as he needs to find a way to renew himself. “I’m sure an album will be out in 2005, I can’t rest much.”

  Per Gessle has never experienced a fever like 2004, he’s sold over 43 million albums, but nothing beats the tour this summer. “I’ve never seen a fever like this, not in any context. It’s totally unique and will be hard to beat, for all of us.” Per says.

  Update: The new single is “Jag borde förstås vetat bättre” with the b-sides being the T&A demos of “Speciell” and “Tuffa tider”. The sleeve will be something really special: a sun-bleached photo from 1966 of the Gessle family’s red brick house in Furet in Halmstad, with a little tyke standing in front of it wearing yellow pajamas “eagerly awaiting the Dumle lollipop of the day.”
