Because I’ve focused on realizing other sections of the site (to go live later this year), there have only been social media updates and not many blog updates, so here’s a recap of this summer!

Allsång På Skansen
For eight weeks, Petra hosted the Swedish sing-along television show Allsång På Skansen every Tuesday. She performed with artists such as Måns Zelmerlöw and Alcazar and had the audience sing along with many more. In the final episode, Petra announced that she would not return as the presenter in 2016, to be able to focus on her own music. Highlights can be seen on the SeptemberFans YouTube channel here.

Both Petra and Allsång were nominated for the Swedish television awards Kristallen, in the categories Årets kvinnliga programledare (This year’s female presenter) and Årets program (This year’s program).

No remixes for “Det Som Händer I Göteborg (Stannar I Göteborg)”
It recently became clear that remixes for Petra’s latest single “Det Som Händer I Göteborg (Stannar I Göteborg)” were initially due for release on Razzia Records, but that the label decided not to release them after all. Gladly, Gothenborg-based remix duo Don Palm released their extended remix as a free download on their SoundCloud page.

What’s coming up?
Petra’s tour has been postponed until early 2016. What this means regarding the upcoming album is unknown for now. Follow SeptemberFans on Facebook and Twitter for continuous updates!


Single #2 is “Sanningen”

It’s been confirmed: “Sanningen” is the second single off “Inferno”. Seems a good choice! Petra has performed it many times already, so it was obvious it would be chosen as the second single, but it’s been confirmed officially by Razzia Records now.
The track has already been b-listed at P3 radio, and the music video has been filmed as well.


Listen to “Händerna Mot Himlen”!

Petra’s new single “Händerna Mot Himlen” premiered on Scandipop today. This first bit of the upcoming album “Inferno”, to be released late October, sounds indeed different to the ‘old’ September sound. And Petra was right with comparing the new sound to Coldplay – but she keeps the sound also close to her own.
The single will be released on Razzia Records in Sweden on Friday.

Listen to “Händerna Mot Himlen” here!

Also, petramarklund.se and a new Facebook page have been launched to go with the releases.

New album released on Razzia Records

Petra’s upcoming album “Så Mycket Svartare” has been added to cdon.se, a Swedish webshop.
It appears the new album will be released under Razzia Records, which makes sense as ‘Razzia’ can be seen on Jocke Berg’s guitar on an early press photo. There’s also an update on the album on the label’s official website, razziarecords.se.
