Party Crasher is the third English solo album by Swedish pop-rock singer and composer Per Gessle. This is his second worldwide-released English solo album under his own name after The World According to Gessle in 1997.[11] Originally scheduled for release on 3 December in Sweden, it was actually released a week earlier on 26 November, the album reached #2 in the Swedish album charts,[12] curiously becoming the first Gessle involved studio album that did not reach #1 in Sweden since Roxette´s Pearls of Passion, in 1986.

When the album was released via Sony BMG in the UK on 15 June 2009, some fans were disappointed when it was realised that the CD version of the album would only be available to order online and no physical copies were to be available in record stores.[citation needed]
