Album title, release date and another song…

Peter’s official site has revealed that Peter’s new album will be called “Livet, Kärleken och Döden – La Vie, L’Amour, La Mort…” which is the Swedish and French for “Life, Love and Death”.

The album will be released on 19 October 2011.

The front page of the Swedish version of Peter’s official site has a video of one of the songs from the album. The song is called “Jackie” and is a new version of “La Chanson de Jacky” written by Jacques Brel and made famous by Scott Walker in 1967. Marc Almond also had a hit with it in 1991.

Peter Jöback debuts new song

Peter appeared on “Allsång på Skansen” last night and debuted a song from his upcoming album. The album is a collection of French songs translated into Swedish.

The song is called “Precis som vanligt” (literal translation = “As Usual”) and is the Swedish version of “Comme d’habitude”, better known to most of the world as “My Way” made famous by Frank Sinatra.

The Swedish lyrics were written by Andreas Mattsson and the song was arranged by Hans Ek.

Here is a clip of the song.
