Marie Fredriksson, Per Gessle and Clarence Öfwerman and Christoffer Lundquist spent the last three days in the Atlantis studio in Stockholm recording Marie’s vocals for the upcoming Roxette album. We remember that “Have a nice day” and also “Room Service” were recorded there as well. Per Gessle commented on Marie: “Marie’s voice = splendido”.
Here you can see a new picture from the studio which Per Gessle uploaded only some minutes ago on his new website on Snowfish.
Studio time is also booked for the Polar studios in Stockholm. So until now we don’t know if Marie finished her recordings or if there is more to come. If they managed to record all her parts in three days we comment on this with: Wow, that was fast.
In an interview with Radio Halland Per Gessle spoke about his future plans with Roxette and Marie Fredriksson. There will be a new Roxette album in 2010 – and most probably there will be more Roxette performances next year. If it’s a tour or just a show here and there or a live performance on a festival – nothing has been announced so far. Read what Per says about Marie Fredriksson and Roxette:
A while ago Marie Fredriksson’s first “official” performance after her illness has been uploaded to YouTube. At the “Kick AIDS out”-gala in Stockholm in December 2005 she performed “I never loved a man”. Her husband Mikael Bolyos joined her on the keyboards. Have fun watching.
With Marie Fredriksson in top shape the three Frankfurt shows were the peak for Roxette on the Night of the Proms-tour so far. Frankfurt was cooking, the audience was incredible and together we let fly around 50 balloons during “Joyride”. Marie rocked the stage like never before and blew the hall away. Here you can see some pictures of the gig in Frankfurt on saturday, December 5th. For more information about the NOTP gigs visit our partner site RoxetteBlog.

Roxette performed at the “New Wave Festival” in Jurmala, Latvia, last night. They sang four songs – Joyride, The Look, It must have been love and Listen to your heart. Obviously The Look and Joyride got a remaster and sounded different to the album versions. Listen to your heart and It must have been love sounded like ever, though. You can watch Listen to your heart (poor quality!).
