Petra will be presenting Allsång På Skansen in 2014

Having performed at Allsång På Skansen this year, Petra will be presenting the Swedish show in 2014. It will be the first time she’ll be hosting a show and she said she’s nervous for it. When she was first asked, it was a “no way”. Fellow singer Sarah Dawn Finer was also on SVT’s list of candidates, but Petra got the job.

Allsång På Skansen 2013

Petra performed live at Swedish show Allsång På Skansen yesterday – and she was good! She performed “Händerna Mot Himlen” before moving into the crowd while singing a Swedish song called “Dansen På Sunnanö”, and while she did this she let people sing bits of the song as well. She also talked with the presenter (Swedish singer Måns Zelmerlöw) about music, but I’m not sure about what exactly (I don’t speak Swedish). She then disappeared from the stage, only to come back again about half an hour later to perform an old September song… “Kärlekens Tunga”! It was a non-dance version, very well performed.

Clips are available already! Watch “Händerna Mot Himlen” here, the interlude in the crowd here and “Kärlekens Tunga” here!

Hungerhjälpen & 10 years of September!

Petra performed at the Hungerhjälpen event yesterday to collect money for charity. Other artists that performed were i.a. Avicii and Agnes. Petra sang her new single “Förlorad Värld”, “Aska I Vinden” and her the biggest hit “Händerna Mot Himlen”. Watch the performance here, by starting at the 00:58:07 mark.

Ten years ago, June 2, 2003, September’s debut single “La La La (Never Give It Up)” was released! In the decade that followed Petra became a well-known artist with a bunch of amazing dance tracks on her name. In the past year we got to know Petra can also pull off other styles of music. On to another ten musical years of the best artist alive!

This is good news for fans that weren’t able to visit the first tour, but there’s some other great news – a new single will be released May 19! Förlorad Värld it is, and in the version of a fresh new radio edit! The cover photo was made in the football stadium Petra posted a photo of lately. The digital bundle includes both the album version and the new edit, as well as a new acoustic version of “Sanningen”!

Förlorad Värld
1. Förlorad Värld – 04:59
2. Förlorad Värld (Radio Edit) – 03:47
3. Sanningen (Akustisk) – 03:55

Notable is that the second single, “Sanningen”, didn’t chart. This possibly is because “Händerna Mot Himlen” is still (!) in the charts, and the fact that most people interested in the song already bought the full album. Let’s hope “Förlorad Värld” to be another hit!

“Himlen”

“Himlen” is a ballad featured in the setlist of the current tour. Petra provided vocals for a studio version as well, which was featured on “Kom Ut Ikväll! Mauro Scocco 50 (En Hyllning)”, a compilation with tracks from all kinds of Swedish artists for Mauro Scocco’s 50th anniversary.
