Roxette enters studio this summer, probable release before the end of the year

ARNHEM/NIJMEGEN - “After all those years, we deserve to have a little fun!”

UIT Magazine, a local Dutch lifestyle and entertainment magazine publishes an exclusive interview with Roxette in their June issue, with a large picture of Roxette on their front cover. The full page article deals with Roxette’s comeback and performance as headliner at the Night of the Proms concert later this year and mentions a few interesting facts.

Marie mentions that during the Christmas tour in Sweden she discovered she felt great again on stage. She loved being on stage again and decided it was time to continue with Roxette. Per says that when Marie indicated she was completely ready, they could start talking about a reunion. “It has been a rough and difficult time and I am glad it is behind me now. I feel great! I really want to start working with Per again and most of all have a lot of fun together,” says Marie. Per also emphasizes that a lot has happened in seven years; they both have changed. “Roxette used to be a part of the music industry, trying to be successful. That’s not our goal anymore, we now focus on the things that satisfy us,” says Per.

Per informs the reporter that they will enter the studio this summer. They will not record an entire album, but they will release something new. Per hopes they can release this to the public before the end of the year.
