Gyllene Tider’s single to be released “twice” next week

Written by tevensso on May 12, 2004 to .

STOCKHOLM - The upcoming Gyllene Tider-single will be “En sten vid en sjö i en skog” after all, and it will be released in exactly one week - next Wednesday. But there’s “another” single as well.

  It’s an old Gyllene Tider tradition to release double A-sided singles; it started with “Flickorna på TV2/Himmel No. 7” and continued with “Ska vi älska så ska vi älska till Buddy Holly/(Dansar inte lika bra som) Sjömän.” Now, this new single will follow that tradition by including two tracks: A-side “En sten vid en sjö i en skog” and the A-side: “Tuffa tider (för en drömmare)” (Tough Times (For a Dreamer)).

  “It’s been like going on a very much longed for school trip recording with the Gyllene-guys again,” Per Gessle says. “We recorded 15 songs down in Skåne and 14 have made it to the album. Half of them feel like strong singles so it’s been almost impossible to select a single. So we picked two!”

  “Tuffa tider” includes a ukulele and an ocarina, while “En sten…” is a power-pop song á la Gyllene Tider.

  The Daily Roxette will stream the new songs on Sunday at midnight CET.

Excellent, looking forward to hearing the single...

GREAT,GREAT,GREATTT!!!!!As the old times!!Simply gorgeous!

Nice cover, can’t wait for the single! - I thought that there were 15 tracks on the album?... Rich

both are the single cover.. take one for Tuffa Tider and one for En sten...

“Half of them feel like strong singles so it’s been almost impossible to select a single.” Hmm... this is what Per said about “Mazarin” and he couldn’t have been more right!!

Great cover’s, so cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, this new album has 14 or 15 songs?

The “two covers” are on either side of the single package. Turn it over... other “cover.”

Is the single available for pre-order anywhere? Rich

Ginza has it on preorder.
The tracklist is not yet fully set according to a person close to Gyllene Tider, so the tracklist published earlier may change. And probably will since a song is missing...


Could any of you tell me the name of that swedish online cd outlet which its name starts with an S? Also, in case any of you know any other online cd store that ships to the US, I would be glad if you could let me know their websites’ addresses.

I’d really appreciate it.
Thanks a lot!
Take care care.

Anyway, what does CET mean? Is it Greenwich-time +1 hour?

we have always used CET when posting times.. Central European Time

Both songs are great - summer is ready to come now.

Incredibly enough, yes.

@Tevensso: Thanks a lot. I appreciate it.

Take care.
