Peter will be releasing his new album “I Love Musicals – The Album” on 11 September 2013 and as you can probably guess, it will be based on his I Love Musicals concerts.
No tracklisting as yet but the blurb says it will contain songs from “Phantom of the Opera”, “Jesus Christ Superstar”, “Cabaret”, “Chess”, “Miss Saigon”, “Kristina från Duvemåla”, Sweeney Todd” and many more. The album features guest performers Katy Treharne and Ma-Anne Dionisio as well as the Stockholm Symphony Orchestra.

On top of all this, Peter has been recording a new album. He has been dropping hints in his blog and has just given some more concrete information. It will be an album of songs from musicals, based on his I Love Musicals tour. There will be some duets on the album and Peter has been recording with his West End co-stars Katy Treharne (Phantom of the Opera) and Ma-Anne Dionisio (Miss Saigon). The only confirmed song so far is “Come What May” from “Moulin Rouge” which will be sung with both Katy and Ma-Anne. Peter has hinted that there will be a song or two from “Phantom of the Opera”. The album has had recording session in Stockholm and now New York.
At last night’s second chance final of Melodifestivalen, Peter performed “Music of the Night” as one of the intermission acts. It is a powerful performance and can be seen at the SVT website for the next month.
