One More Time is a Swedish pop group. Members are Peter Grönvall, his wife Nanne Grönvall and Maria Rådsten. A fourth member, Thérèse Löf, left the group shortly after the first album was released. In 1992 they began their international career with the release of the single and album Highland. The single became an international success, entering No. 1 in the hit charts of 10 countries and awarding them prize for Best Foreign Group in Belgium. The Highland album went gold in South Africa. Turn Out the Light was a further single release off this album. Their second, self-titled album followed in 1994 but wasn't as successful as the previous album.

The group never dissolved and there are plans of a fifth album. Nanne Grönvall has a successful solo career in Sweden since her first solo album in 1998.

Peter Grönvall is the son of ABBA's Benny Andersson.

At Melodifestivalen 1996 the group composed and performed the etno ballad Den vilda (The Savage), which won the selections and propelled them to third place in Eurovision Song Contest 1996 in Oslo, Norway.
