News Archives: March 1999
The album has now been released in the UK, but North America is still waiting for the release.
Per told at www.haveaniceday.nu that the singles released from the new album will be (in chronological order) “Anyone” (April-May-June), “Stars” (July-August), “Salvation” and “Crush On You”. “Stars” remixes are also waiting to be released.
In Japan Roxette has apparently already released a double A-side single “Pay The Price / Anyone”.
The video for “Anyone” was recently shot in Portugal. The director is Jonas Åkerlund, who also directed the “Wish I Could Fly” video.
Per has also given hints about a Roxette box-set (it rhymes quite nicely, doesn’t it :-). The box is likely to contain at least an official release of Roxette’s Unplugged concert back in 1993.
Next Roxette home video may contain in addition to the Roxette tracks the excellent Gessle videos “Do You Wanna Be My Baby?” and “Kix”.
According to Per the new album is likely to be released in Canada on Capitol label.
In the USA, however, things aren’t going very well. Lars-Erik Olsson, who told us about Roxette’s negotiations with Epic in the US, said recently at Rox Britannia that “the deal with Epic seems to have fallen through and it looks unlikely that the album will be out on July 4th”.
The Latin American division of the Official Roxette Fan Club has now got their own web site. “Our main objetive is to make easier ppl from Latin America join the FC. But we’ll have other activities, such as fanmeetings and so”, say the division managers Ezequiel “PiR_GeSSLe” González and Erika van de Staaij.

Sofia Björk of Roxworld asked Per and Marie about the second single when she met them at their record signing session in Stockholm. Both Per and Marie told her that the single #2 will definitely be “Stars”.
I just wonder, how many second singles they’re going to have…? :-)
