Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Peter’s Christmas album

Another anniversary, this time the 20th anniversary of Peter’s Christmas album “Jag kommer hem igen till jul”.

A special website has been set up to commemorate the anniversary of what has become a Swedish classic as well as a turning point in Peter’s career. The website can be found here:

On the site, there are stories, facts, images, videos to discover. It is all in Swedish but Google Translate will help if you don’t understand Swedish. Well worth checking out.

There is also a Christmas Advent Calendar on the site with four dates to check out.

The fourth date has already been revealed to be an online concert. Tickets can be purchased here.


10th Anniversary of I Love Musicals + New Song

Hard to believe that it’s been 10 years since the “I Love Musicals” album was released. To commemorate this milestone, a 10th Anniversary edition of the CD is being released in the UK on 25 November 2022. The CD will contain a bonus track recorded by Peter for this release. “Down to the Sea” is an English language version of “Ut mot ett hav” from “Kristina från Duvemåla”.

Click here to pre-order the CD.

“Down to the Sea” has been released on the usual digital platforms as a single and can be heard below.

New single – and an album update

Peter will release his new single on Friday 23 September 2022. The song is a duet with Swedish singer Petra Marklund, who has had international success under the moniker September. The song is called “Illusioner” and is in Swedish. The English translation of the title is “Illusions” and is written by Peter himself, Petra, Peter Kvint and Annika Norlin.

The song can be pre-saved/pre-added at the following link:

There is also a short video teaser filmed at Peter’s concert two weeks ago, when Petra joined Peter on stage for the debut of the song.

Peter is currently in the UK recording his new album at the legendary RAK Studios in London with producer Ed Harcourt. Naturally, Peter is very excited but does not know when it will be released yet. Peter has been posting updates on his social media so now may be a good time to follow him, if you don’t already. Scroll down for his official links on the right hand side of the page.

Watch “Peter Jöback – The River (Official Audio)” on YouTube

Peter has released a new single, “The River” on the usual digital platforms. It is written by Peter himself along with Pete Hammerton and Emma Rohan.

A very strong song, which, along with”Better Man”, bodes well for a new album.

Peter’s autobiography released as audio book

Peter’s autobiography, “Att bära sig själv”, has also been released as an audio book, read by Peter himself. It is available from audio book streaming services in Sweden. If outside of Sweden, you will need to check to see if you can still access it. It is in Swedish of course.

On Facebook, Peter suggested the services Storytel, Nexstory and Bookbeat.

Så Mycket Bättre – week 4

Week 4 – Einstein, Elvis & jag

Peter has chosen another big song for his final week on Så mycket bättre. “Einstein, Elvis & jag”, originally from Thomas Stenström.

Here is Thomas’ version of the song.

Thomas Stenström – Elvis,Einstein och jag

Maxida Märak radically reworked Peter’s Christmas song with new lyrics and even a rap. “Jag kommer hem igen till slut” means “I’m Coming Home Again in the End”. Very different.

Peter and Birkir on Idol – the video

Thank you, Peter. A great performance. Birkir is definitely a talent to watch.
