The Poodles released its new single, "Seven Seas" in Sweden on April 25. The title cut is said to be a "true pirate story" which features an appearance by the Swedish actor Peter Stormare ("Prison Break", "Fargo" and "Jurassic Park").
"Seven Seas" is the first single from the group's new album, "The Sweet Trade", which was once again produced by Matti Alfonzetti and Johan Lyander. The song was written by Jakob Samuel, Jonas Reingold and Peter Stormare.
Commented Samuel: "At the beginning the song was nice and neat but felt harmless. Jonas and I wanted it meaner with more substance, it needed Peter's power and deep black song."
Stormare laid down his parts at the StormVox Studio in West Hollywood, California — the same studio where he normally records with his band BFF (Blond from Fargo), along with contributions from from former members of Slash's Snakepit and Guns N' Roses, among other groups.
"When we put everything together and mastered in Stockholm, the story suddenly became true", Jakob said.
"The Sweet Trade" will be released on September 28 via AFM Records.
