Peter will be part of the line-up for the final episode of the popular TV program Allsång på Skansen on 17 August 2021.
Allsång is a sing-along show that will be broadcast live on SVT1 at 8pm local time. The organisers will be allowing a limited audience. Last year’s season did not have any audience due to the pandemic. Tickets will be available shortly through Ticketmaster for both the rehearsal and the actual show but are expected to sell out quickly.
Alternatively, you should be able to watch via the SVT streaming service SVT Play. The episode should be able to be seen around the world.
Things have been fairly quiet over the past 18 months – until last week that is.
Just over week ago, Peter reached a milestone by turning 50 and since then the news has been rolling in.
Possibly the most exciting is that new music is on its way. Peter has been teasing recording sessions in the studio on his Instagram account for some time now. With his 50th birthday, it was announced that Peter has signed with Warner Music Sweden and that newly written music will be released at the end of summer. I am taking this to mean either September or October, traditionally a popular time to release albums.
I seem to recall Peter mentioning that he has been working with his songwriting team behind the amazing Humanology album, which is good news. That would be Kathryn Williams and Tobias Fröberg.
Peter is currently on Gotland filming for the next season of the Swedish TV show Så mycket bättre (literal translation = So much better). If you haven’t heard of the show, it gets together a diverse group of Swedish music artists and they all perform versions of each other’s songs. It is very popular and has been around for over 10 years. The songs are released via digital platforms and are also collected together on a CD release. A bonus (for me anyway) is that one of my favourite singers from the 70s, Harpo is also appearing. Outside of Sweden. he was mainly known for the worldwide hit Moviestar but within Sweden he has a full catalogue of music stretching over several decades.
Peter also mentioned in passing that he has been filming a new movie in Malmö. No other details as yet.
