In the early 2000s, Peter Sommer and Carsten Valentin Lassen formed the pop rock duo Superjeg. Sommer was lead vocals and also played bass, whereas Lassen played guitar and keyboards. The duo utilized many double meanings and puns in their musical output and released two albums: Alt er ego in 2002 and Øst/Vest in 2003, both on the label Auditorium (2). The duo has never officially disbanded, but they have not produced any content together since.

In 2004, Peter Sommer released his debut solo album, På den anden side, which cracked the Top 5 in Denmark. The single "Valby Bakke" was selected as Ugens Uundgåelige (week's pick), a label given to rising artists by Danish radio station P3; however, it never charted. In 2006, his follow-up album Destruktive vokalerwon him a prize from Statens Kunstfond (the Danish Arts Foundation), and, in 2007, won the title of "Danish Pop Album of the Year". In 2008, he released his album Til rotterne, til kragerne, til hundene, which came with his first charting single "Rødt kort" and, in 2009, earned the title of "Danish Rock Album of the Year". Sommer won "Danish Male Artist of the Year" and "Danish Songwriter of the Year" at the 2009 Danish Music Awards. His album producer Henrik Balling won Producer of the Year for his work with Sommer.
