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.

The single cover for ”Räddaren i nöden”

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.
