Pelle Carlberg "1983 (Pelle & Sebastian)" - Free MP3 single

Found this Labrador Records newsletter in my inbox this a.m.:

"1983 (Pelle & Sebastian)" is a seductive breeze of a melancholic Swedish summer, borrowed percussion from Rio de Janerio and late nights with Love's "Forever changes" in the headphones. And not only that, it's also the first single from Pelle Carlberg's upcoming album "The Lilac Time".

In Jaunary 2008 Pelle Carlberg plays his last gig of the ”In a nutshell”-tour in Kuala Lumpur and returns to Sweden to write songs for his third solo album. He buys an abandoned church in a desolated area of the island of Gotland and spends six weeks there. "– I had to leave Stockholm to make this album. In the middle of nowhere it’s easy to write in soulful and relaxed".

’The difficult third album’ has rarely seemed more natural and free from pressure. Pelle has managed to write his finest melodies to this date and his lyrics are so full of exact everyday observations and wry humor it’s close to deadpan.
