Per Gessle writes soundtrack for new Jonas Åkerlund film

Per Gessle has just confirmed what we already suspected in November: that the soundtrack he was working on is indeed for “Small Apartments”, the new film by Jonas Åkerlund. Per has just written the following on Facebook:

Yes Box Alright! I’ve done the soundtrack, based on the Son of a Plumber vibe, for Jonas Åkerlund’s new movie “Small Apartments”. The music has been recorded at the AGM Studio and as expected the mighty Mr Lundquist & Mr Ofwerman have been the cornerstones. The film? Well, it’s a “dark comedy” (based on the S.A. novel) starring Matt Lucas, Billy Crystal, James Caan and Peter Stormare in the leading parts. And yes, it’s a wonderful movie. And yes, there will be a soundtrack. And yes, we have to release it on vinyl as well. I’m really proud to be part of this. Cheers, P. PS. Jonas is God.

So if we didn’t have enough with Tourism 2 (or 2rism or 2Rism or however it will be called) and the tour.. there is even more for our ears this year.

  1. I am sure that the movie is a crap like Spun was in 2003 and it’s gonna screw the soundtrack as well which I expect to be cool though.

    Per is wrong about Jonas, he’s no God at all, he’s a satanist and I were Per I would be good to keep away from this guy…

  2. I think I saw part of Spun in an exhibition of Jonas in Sthlm some years ago.. quite spookie what was to see in the exhibition.. the Rox videos are nothing compared to others he did. Not my taste at all.
    But I don’t have to watch the film to listen to the songs, so that’s fine 😉

  3. I’ve seen “Spun” a couple of month ago and I was shocked what disgusting / icky scenes there where. I mean, do one really have to show a ugly girl sitting on the toilet and in the next frame her shit/excrements. I think no!!! Akerlund thinks yes. Bad taste.
