Looking for the font used on the cover of Agnetha Fältskog's 2004 album, "My Colouring Book"

As the title says, I am hoping to identify the typeface used on Agnetha Fältskog's 2004 album, "My Colouring Book" as well as its two singles, "If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind" and "When You Walk In The Room."

The album and first single were released in April 2004 so I suspect that the covers were designed in 2003. 

For background, Fältskog is a member of ABBA and this album was her first release since the late 1980s. I associate this album and the font with a particularly happy time of my life. I am hoping to locate a digital version of this font. I have a strong preference for a paid commercial version.

The album cover was designed by Destrito, a Swedish design agency. An archived version of their website lists Destrito founder Ola Johansson as the project lead and Madelaine Heneby as the designer. 

The font was only used for the artist's name and release title. Alternate fonts are used for everything else. 

Please note the very distinctive "e" that does not completely close. 

 

Thank you in advance for any help!

It looks like Swatch (aka What Time Is It?) with 'a' being modified (also 't' and 's' is merged). Free for personal use only, but "Read this" file contains some old contacts as well a personal message. The author doesn't seem to be keen on commercial use.

Thank you very much! That's definitely the font. "What Time Is It?" definitely rings a bell so I must have known it as the correct font back in 2004.
