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.
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.
