On 12 August 2014, Peter and Helen appeared on the popular TV show Allsång på Skansen, and performed a song from the upcoming musical, “Livet är en schlager”. The song is called “Som skapta för varann”.
The clip is still available for viewing at SVT Play. Click on the image above to be able to see it. It will be available until 11 September 2014.
“I Love Musicals – The Album” is out now in Swedish shops.
The album is also available through iTunes internationally except Japan, USA and Canada. It will be available in those territories next week.
Above is the cover of the non-Scandinavian version of the album that is on iTunes. This has all the songs from the standard version except for “Annars vore jag inte jag” which was excluded because it is in Swedish. If you are from outside Scandinavia, you will need to order the physical album to get this track. It can be ordered from Bengans by clicking here.
If you are in Sweden this weekend, Peter will be signing copies of the album at NK Ljusgården in Stockholm from 1pm on Saturday and at Åhlens Nordstan in Gothenburg from 2pm on Sunday.
Peter Jöback performed at the wedding of Princess Madeleine and Christopher O’Neill in Sweden yesterday. It was a lightning visit since Peter had to get back to New York for his appearance at the Tony Awards. Consequently, Peter missed the after party.
Madeleine had personally requested that Peter sing at the wedding. The couple chose the romantic “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”, made famous by Roberta Flack.
You can watch Peter’s performance on SVT Play here.
