The official site advises that ”Räddaren i nöden” is being released digitally on Friday 1 April 2011. No word on whether it will be released internationally.
The official site has also added a 40 second clip from the song to the music player at the top of the page.
Peter’s new single ”Räddaren i nöden” has a very arty cover (see above).
The song was written by Ludwig Bell, a singer/songwriter also signed to Razzia Records.
Still no word on a release date, formats, etc.

The album is planned to be released before June.
If you missed the radio broadcast not to fear. The program has been archived. Just go to the following link:
On the right hand side of the page, down a bit, you will see a box headed “Lyssna igen”. Choose 2011-03-28 08:00-09:00 and then fast forward to the 26:55 mark. This is the start of the new single “Räddaren i nöden”.
If the link is not there then click on “Klicka här för fler klipp”. When the new window opens, click on the Lyssna Igen tab and select 08.00 2011-03-28.
It seems that the archived shows only stay up for about 4 days so be quick.
