According to an article on Aftonbladet, Per Gessle is going to start recording a new solo album soon, “I have booked a studio for a solo album,” he tells Aftonbladet.

The reporter asks him about the rumous about a Gyllene Tider comeback next year, to what Per answers it’s a 50-50 chance that there will be a tour. “We have talked about it for many years, it’s not easy to come back. I think it’s a fantastic pop band, but it’s not in my hands.” He also explains that the other GT members are booked for other things, so it would be a lot of shifting and replanning to make it true.

He also tells that he doesn’t think the songs he wrote for his solo album could work with Gyllene Tider “It’s two different things”.

Per is not sure if a solo tour could be an alternative, “I don’t know, we thought of doing something with Roxette in 2014 so it might be good to take it easy,” and adds, joking, “I am not 50 anymore”.

My personal comment: In any case, 2013 is surely going to be an interesting year – and I don’t believe the “take it easy” part of it.
