Tickets are available via blixten.se/petramarklund. In other news, Petra has given interviews at three Swedish radio stations in the past few days. You can listen to them here.
It’s out! Petra’s new single is a Swedish track titled “Det Som Händer I Göteborg (Stannar I Göteborg)“. It’s an indie pop song with electronic elements, and has a cheerful summer vibe to it. Petra wrote the track in Gothenburg, and explained that it symbolizes her nice visits to the city. She did not write the track alone: it was co-written by Jonas Quant (Agnes, No Doubt) and Ana Diaz. Production credits remain unknown for now.
The song: you can get it via digital outlets such as iTunes, Google Play, etc. or listen on Spotify, Deezer, etc… 😉
Promotion started first thing in the morning, when Petra visited Swedish radio station Mix Megapol and talked about the new single, obviously, as well as Allsång På Skansen (podcast here). Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet published a 2-page interview in their physical newspaper and on their website.
At the time of writing, the song is #6 on the Swedish iTunes chart. The first photos have surfaced on the web as well – higher quality files will hopefully follow. For continued updates about the single, you are welcome on our forum.
