Video for SHE'S GOT NOTHING ON

As you know the last video for Roxette is on the air. They wanted an aproach to the younger public, without forgetting the fans that follow them since " The look".  The video is directed by Mats Udd a young swedish tallent that initially proposed three scenarios for the video, Per and Marie ending choosing the last one presented. Enjoy!

 

Happy New Year!

All Roxette fans from Romania wish you a Happy New Year!
And to celebrate it, here is a video montage made by Ovidiu Ardelean, when he met Per and Marie. The background music is from Per Gessle's "Ett perfekt agg".

So, see you next year, and may we all have a Rox-full 2011!

30 second snippet of "She's Got Nothing On (But the Radio)"

Amazon.de posted a snippet of 30 seconds from the new single of Roxette : "She's Got Nothing On (But the Radio)". The lyrics that can be heard are:

What she got she got to let somebody find it
– "Really?"
What she got is not for her to keep alone
– "Oh!"
Nobody ’s got a clue if there is such a reason
–"Yea?"
Why she wanna play it o-on her own

She’s got nothing on but the radio
She’s a passion play
And like the break of day
She takes my breath away...

In My Own Way - lyrics

(track #9 from Charm School)

I gathered a mountain
An ocean of teardrops
A castle of break-ups
To hide myself in

I’ve waited a lifetime
For someone to find me
For someone to reach me
Somewhere to begin

Now I’m a woman
I can tell by the look in your eyes
We’re no strangers
I can tell by the way that you smile

I’ve painted the sunsets
The dawnings I’ve missed you
The hours I’ve kissed you
To keep my heart alive

It’s the heat of your breathing
The way you are whispering
The urge of your wanting
I can’t leave you behind

Now I’m a woman
I can tell by the look in your eyes
We’re no strangers
I can tell by the waves in the night

You bring a little hope, bring a little love

I don’t want to own you
I don’t want to lead you
I just want to love you

In my own way

"She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)" – newest song, written this autumn, extremely infectious groove
"No One Makes It On Her Own" – essential track, sung by Marie
"Sitting On Top Of The World" – bittersweet album closer

Press Release:

On February 11 the unlikely becomes reality. After 25 years as a world-famous act with 70 million albums sold, one of Sweden’s biggest pop groups steps back into the spotlight, a decade after their last studio album "Room Service".

They do it with "Charm School", a new album with twelve songs in a style that’s best described as "updated classic Roxette", from the initial power pop fireworks of "Way Out" to the bittersweet closer "Sitting On Top Of The World".

First Marie Fredriksson and Per Gessle were reunited on stage to perform "It Must Have Been Love" and "The Look" during Per’s "Party Crasher" tour in Amsterdam. And before the fans knew it, Roxette made a full-scale comeback as headliners during the "Night of the Proms" tour in front of more than 600.000 people in Holland, Belgium and Germany.

"By then we started to think ahead and plan for the possibility of making a new album – an album that captured everything that’s good about Roxette while still looking ahead", says Per Gessle. Said and done. During the tour, the band’s hotel rooms were transformed into recording studios where a string of new Roxette songs took shape.

Back home in Sweden the work continued during the spring and autumn of 2010. Just as when the band recorded during their heyday there were lots of songs to choose from. The sensitive ballad "In My Own Way", for example, is a rediscovered gem from 1984, when the dream of international recognition still was just a dream.

The newest song is the extremely infectious groove-master "She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)", written this autumn. In-between there’s everything that has made Roxette one of the world’s most radio played pop groups; the clinging melodies, the passionate delivery, the humorous pop sense and the unique mix of Marie Fredriksson’s and Per Gessle’s voices. All wrapped up in a musical package that is unmistakably 2011.

"For me the starting point has always been to write songs for Marie’s voice. She got this ability to make you believe every word she sings, and that’s why she brings the stories to life. As a songwriter that’s an incredible gift to be a part of", Gessle says.

The album is recorded in the south of Sweden and Stockholm with Clarence Öfwerman and Christoffer Lundqvist as producers (together with Per and Marie). "Charm School" is a magnificent return to form after ten years of trials and challenges. Or as Marie Fredriksson sings in one of the album’s quintessential tracks: "No One Makes It On Her Own". Hear the school bell ring on February 11.

She's got nothing on (but the radio)

This is the title of the new Roxette single, as Per confirmed on Facebook and Snowfish. The single will be released on the 10th of January! You can see the sleeve in the above picture.

Let's hope Per will make a snippet preview soon :)

And let's hope that Per released genuine information, and not a teaser-joke for the fans, because Lady Gaga has a demo with roughly the same title: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCLzIo0SMJs

Per, again about the single

Per posts again, on Facebook and Twitter, about the upcoming single release:

"Just decided.. there will be a 2-track single. And a vinyl-LP, folks! And an exclusive version of the album incl extra-CD... Hey, it's xmas!"

From dream to reality

I guess all Romanian fans remember the message Marie sent us from Goteborg, on the 11th of December, 2008, when Ovidiu Ardelean was there and took a short video with Marie. Back then, a Roxette concert in Romania was only a dream.

[ Hello everybody! I would really love to say hello to all fans from Romania and I hope to see you soon again. Thank you so much for everything you've done for us! ]

And, after almost two years, our dream has become reality: Per and Marie will come in Romania and we will see them. Thank you, Per, thank you, Marie, and see you in Bucharest!
