Peter released his new single on 6 April 2018 across the usual digital platforms.
The song is called “The Mask” and is written by Peter, Tobias Fröberg and Kathryn Williams. It was produced by Tobias Karlsson from Max Martin’s company MXM in Los Angeles.
A video has also been released. It was filmed in a dance studio in the Bronx. It is directed by Rikkard Häggbom and choreographed by Nicholas Cunningham.
“The Mask” is from Peter’s new album that will be released to coincide with Peter’s new show in September 2018. This will be his first pop album in seven years.
Peter has announced an exciting new show, which will play a residency at the Cirkus Theatre in Stockholm from 20 September 2018.
The name of the show is “Med hjärtat som insats”, which translates to “With his heart on the line” and has also been dubbed “His Greatest Show”. Peter has worked with his creative team Hans Marklund and Magnus Rensfors to create a music experience they are calling “Pop Theatre”.
The show has been described as a spectacular, colourful, dramatic and musical journey between different stages of life and world destinations. Decadent Berlin, romantic Paris, magical New York, sophisticated London and last but not least luxurious Las Vegas. You will meet Peter as an artist, a crooner, a musical star and a pop singer through successes, adversities, love, heartbreak and passion for the stage and showbiz.
The show will play in the evening Thursdays to Saturdays, with a matinee on Saturdays from 20 September 2018 to 15 December 2018. Click here for tickets.
