Published Nov 26, 2013Taking a break from his day job in Peter Bjorn and John, Peter Morén has announced he'll be delivering a new series of solo EPs, which will translate some previously released Swedish language pop songs into English.

The four-song release reinterprets tracks from his solo back catalogue for an English audience, with "Say My Name" ("Säg Mitt Namn"), "Going Places" ("Erik M. Nilsson") and "Constant Reaction" ("Orsak & Verkan") all having appeared in different forms on last year's Pyramiden.
