"Silly Really", Per's new single!

[img_assist|nid=1734|title=|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=150|height=181] Per Gessle's first single, "Silly Really", from forthcoming album "Party Crasher", will be released October 27. The single as well as the album is a step in a new direction for one of Sweden's most successful songwriters and artists.

After two solo albums in Swedish ("Mazarin" in 2003 and "En händig man" in 2007), another studio album with Gyllene Tider ("Finn 5 fel!" 2004) and a double album under the name "Son of a Plumber", Per Gessle now shows us a different side of his pop talent.

"Normally I write the melodies first and then we build an arrangement in the studio. This time I've started with a groove and then written the melody from that, just like when I wrote that little ditty 'The Look' once upon a time", says Per with a crooked smile that's hard to read.

"The songs are written in the '70s '80s era type of dance music. The result is a fun album that is both immediate and in your face, but also brooding and beautiful."

"Party Crasher" is Per Gessle's first international solo album in his own name since "The World According to Gessle", 1997. The album will be released December 3.
