Per Gessle’s Mazarin is No. 1 again!

When Per Gessle announced the release of Mazarin on vinyl in the interview we did with him in May, we all got excited. The fans always wanted Mazarin on vinyl, but it never happened. Until 7th July 2017! 1 week after its release date, the vinyl is No. 1 on the Swedish vinyl charts and it brought Mazarin back on the album charts as well! Woohoo! How cool is that!

Mazarin was released on 16th June 2003 and it became gold already on its release day. 2 days later it became platinum and platinum it is 5x! A little history:

  • Gold 2003-06-16
  • Platinum 2003-06-18
  • Platinum x2 2003-08-04
  • Platinum x3 2003-08-19
  • Platinum x4 2003-11-21
  • Platinum x5 2004-02-02

The album entered the charts at No. 1 on 26th June 2003 and kept its No. 1 position for 11 weeks. I mean 11 weeks!!! Mazarin was on the charts for 66 weeks and came back as No. 1 on 23rd January 2004 for 2 weeks. Now for the 67th time it’s on the album charts again at No. 15!

En vacker natt is at No. 21 now on the album charts and No. 9 on the vinyl charts.

Big congrats to Mr. G! And thanks for this release from the bottom of our hearts!
