Peter, Bjorn and John singer readies solo disc

Peter Moren to release 'The Last Tycoon' in April

Peter, Bjorn and John singer Peter Moren is gearing up for the release of his debut solo album, scheduled to be released April 8.

‘The Last Tycoon’ was written as Moren toured with his band to support the release of their hugely successful ‘Writer’s Block’ LP and according to the singer, the record features “the usual lyrical psychobabble, but with a direct and honest approach.”

The album was recorded and mixed over two years in apartments and studios in Sweden and the US and Moren will preview the material at South By Southwest in March, followed by soon-to- be-confirmed dates in the spring.
