It’s been a little difficult to update the site recently and all though Christmas is behind us, I thought I would combine a few newsy type items in the one post.
Peter’s Christmas movie has done well, reaching number 2 on the Swedish box office charts, just behind”Joker”. Reviews have been positive, some noting the dark themes, darker than you would expect from a Christmas movie. Despite this, there is still a feel good factor and critics have praised the director and of course Peter. Keep an eye out for it at film festivals or the DVD and Blu-ray releases due in March.
Alas, no soundtrack but there is a 3 track digital EP available through the usual online providers. It contains the single “När natt flyr” and new versions of “Jag kommer hem igen till jul” and “Jag tror på dig”. Well worth checking out.
There is a music video for the new version of”Jag kommer hem igen till jul” (above), featuring more clips from the movie.
You may recall that “Jag tror på dig” is the Bob Dylan song from Peter’s Christmas album sung as a duet with Eva Dahlgren. The New version has a second uncredited male voice and although I haven’t seen the movie, I am guessing it is Johannes Kuhnke, who plays the brother. Johannes is also a singer and he even participated in Melodifestivalen back in 2010, the same year that Peter competed with”Hollow”.
Finally, another Christmas song from Peter, a duet with Moonica Mac. It is taken from a new animated short film based on the Astrid Lindgren picture story called “Räven och Tomten” (the story has been published in English as “The Tomten and the Fox”). The song with the same name is available through the usual online providers. The film was shown on SVT on Christmas Eve and can still be seen on SVTPlay albeit only in Sweden.
The song can be heard on Spotify and YouTube.
The music video features Peter at the piano intercut with clips from the movie. Great video for a beautiful song. It really makes me wish I could see the movie but it’s not playing in Australia. Maybe at next year’s Scandinavian Film Festival.
A new Christmas single from Peter has just been released. “När natt flyr” (When the night flies by) is a beautiful song and is the first single to be taken from the forthcoming soundtrack (no details yet) for the movie “Jag kommer hem igen till jul”.
It is available through the usual digital outlets including Spotify.
A new CD has been released in Sweden. “På Spåret 2009 to 2019” by Augustifamiljen.
På Spåret is a TV game show shown on SVT and Augustifamiljen is the house band. The show features musical guests and Peter has appeared a couple of times.
The album features a selection of performances from the past decade. Peter is represented with a version of the Bacharach/David classic “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)”.
The album is available on CD in Sweden and through the usual digital outlets.
You can hear the song below and also see Peter’s appearance on the show.
Peter has released another single from “Humanology”. It is a two track single of “How Great It Is” plus a new remix of “Dancing”. It is available through the usual digital outlets.
- How Great It Is
- Dancing (Interphace Remix)
Peter has released a digital EP called “Remixology”, available through the usual digital outlets. It contains four remixes already released plus two new remixes.

Peter has released remixes of four songs from the Humanology album. They are available through the usual digital platforms.
- Addicted (Interphace Remix)
- Shape of You (Interphace Remix)
- Call Me By Your Name (Sunset ’84 Remix) (remixed by Vinny Vero)

“Humanology” has now been released on vinyl. It is available from the usual online retailers Bengans, Ginza and CDOn. You can also buy it at Peter’s show at Cirkus.
There is also a limited orange vinyl edition, which is limited to 300 copies. This can be ordered from the above online retailers.
“Humanology” has debuted at number one on the Swedish physical sales chart. The album debuted at number six on the combined physical/digital chart.
Well done Peter, and well deserved.
Peter has revealed in an interview that the album will also be released on vinyl. There is no release date yet.
