Per Gessle will release the new disc: "Abba-tempo"
Here are fall's most unexpected pop news:
Per Gessle is back.
- I am as surprised as anyone else, "said the pop star.

Expressen has reached Per Gessle in London where he is now to receive a prize for Roxette USA-first no 1 "Listen to your heart", played for four million times on American radio.
But Gessle is the man who would rather look forward than backward.
- In a few weeks I’ll go to the United States and try to release the new disc there.
The new disc is called "The party crasher" and comes out on Dec 3. First test will be the single "Silly really," already to be release in about three weeks.
- It has gone really quickly. I agree about Abba-tempo right now, "he says with a laugh.

He makes beats on the laptop

Gessle admits, however, that he started to write new songs at the end of last year, since he began to like making beats on his laptop.
- I had no ambition; it was just so damn funny. It is always a good sign that there is something on the track when you sneak upstairs to make music.
He thinks the Bee Gees, Chic and Nile Rodgers and David Bowie 'Let's dance "to be the sources of inspiration.
- The songs have been inspired by a beat, and then, it has become dance music from the 70 - and 80's. It sounds pretty synthesis, but there are some r'n'b there too. It sounds warm and cozy.
- Helena Josefsson sings a lot on the album, and she has done magic.

Besides Helena Josefsson , Clarence Öfwerman and Christoffer Lundquist have participated,as usual, in the recordings of the twelve album tracks.

Gessle, who worked closely with super Dutch photographer Anton Corbijn, has also done the new press photos.
- There is a little idea throughout this project, and I wanted to keep that new concept even in the pictures for the cover.
After a couple of huge tours in 2000's Gessle is thinking that the best thing will be a club tour on a smaller scale.
- I would like to play at Debaser-like places in Europe after the New Year. But it depends a bit on how the disc will be received. I will decide before Christmas.
