You can read a full report and a summary of the show on our partner site Roxetteblog.com.
Marie’s husband Mikael Bolyos was also there and played the keyboards. At some points you can certainly tell someone is still very much in love with Marie.
The 2nd single off “Nu!” is the only Marie-penned song “Sista sommarens vals”. A video of the song has been shot last week in Stockholm.
The video premiered today on Aftonbladet, you can watch it here:

Most songs have been written by Mikael Bolyos, who has cooperated with many other songwriters this time, such as Johan Kinde and Ulf Schagerström.
Swedish media has also already reviewed the album, that’s what is online so far:
Marie Fredriksson’s new album is called “Nu!” and will be out at November 26th. Today, or maybe tomorrow – no one could tell so far – the first single off Nu! will be out. The song is called “Kom vila hos mig” and had its radio premiere yesterday. Someone was fast enough to record it and uploaded it to YouTube. Please take a listen:
The song has been written by Marie’s husband Mikael Bolyos, who wrote most of the songs on this album, Christoffer Lundquist produced it – both you can hear very clearly.
One song is written by Marie herself and one song is written by her Roxette partner and friend Per Gessle. So far we don’t know what the other songs on the album are called. Hopefully, it will be possible to buy the single tomorrow the latest.
In the press release, Marie also says that she hopes she can take the album on a tour – which would take place next year. Let’s keep our fingers crossed she decides to really tour!
WE WANT THAT!!
This is – by the way – the cover of “Kom vila hos mig”:

While Marie Fredriksson is still on tour with Roxette until September 2012, there are rumours out that we might get a new Swedish Marie album and a solo tour next year.
And this is not only a rumour spread by fans but it was Marie herself who gave that information to Roxette fans some days ago – at least she said something will happen in 2013. So far, this information is not confirmed and we don’t know anything more than that. But if only one of those two rumours is true (album and/or tour) we should feel more than happy!
Swedish photographer Caroline Roosmark who has recently taken photos of Roxette created a calendar for 2012 for charity. It’s called Women & Men 2012.
“The calendar is made on a very tight budget, none of the extras or stars get any payment, yet they never turn Caroline down, in spite of their often jam-packed schedules”, The Daily Roxette writes. Marie Fredriksson of Roxette is also participating in the calendar. The text on May’s page reads as follows: She couldn’t come along, they took away from her pearls and ribbons, all the visible signs of success. Sparrows’ eyes followed her, the birds sat in her hands. The smallest animals by the hem of her dress. A friendly light fell over the backyard and we know: soon she’s going out in the world.
The calendar is for sale at Caroline’s site, the price is 169 SEK. You may also purchase the original photos there.
A new Swedish fashion magazine called StyleBy features a fashion reportage about Marie Fredriksson’s style through the years.
