Petra Marklund – INFERNO!

This came a little unexpected. It seems the new album by Petra Marklund will not be called “Så Mycket Svartare”, as earlier reported. “Inferno” will be the title! Cover art has also been released; all what’s left now is the tracklist. And if that’s not enough, it also appears that, next to the CD version, an LP version will be released as well.
A mail sent to me by Bengans.se includes the banner below (other banner taken off Bengans.se).

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.

Petra Marklund: Så Mycket Svartare!

“Så Mycket Svartare” – that is what the upcoming album will be called. In English it means “So Much Darkness”. The album is set for a release on October 24, 2012 – which is less than three months left! Produced by the likes of Jocke/Joachim Berg from Kent, Saska Becker who you may know for minor production on “Love CPR”, and Daniel Ledinsky.
Also, it appears that Petra is “taking a break” from team September, and will be releasing this album under her own name. Petra recently said in an interview with DN.se:

“I just want to do what I love. I’m very proud of this album. This record has been on my mind for quite some time so it feels great that it is ready now.”

Album influenced by Coldplay/Depeche Mode

More info on the new album: Petra describes her new sound as Coldplay, Florence + The Machine, and Depeche Mode. What to expect more is still unknown, but as she’ll also be working with Jocke Berg from Swedish rock band Kent (as earlier reported), it seems Petra’s trying new music styles.
I’m getting curious now! You?

New album will be in Swedish

Rumours that suggested that the new album would be written/sung in Swedish, have been confirmed by Swedish music site gaffa.se.
The album will be written by/produced with Daniel Ledinsky, Saska Becker, and Jocke Berg (known from Swedish rock band Kent), among others. For her latest record ‘Love CPR’, Petra has been working with various producers too, in contrary to her ‘main team’ (Jonas and Niclas von der Burg and Anoo Bhagavan) which she has been working with on her first three albums.
