Roxette World Tour 2011 schedule

Ten songs recorded for new album

Written by roxeteer on May 29, 2000 to .

Roxette has recorded ten songs so far for their new album. Five more will be recorded when the studio sessions begin again in mid-September. Of those songs, 12 will be chosen for the album.

Clarence Öfwerman and Christoffer Lundquist are still in Roxette’s band. A new face is Jimmy Monell from April Tears. According to Per, “he’s 22 years old and comes from another world,” he’s new to studio working and brings in fresh ideas.

Whether or not there will be a world tour depends on the sales figures. “Touring has two sides. It changes one’s life a lot for a period of time, but it also gives satisfaction to frustrated fans who think that we never ’show’ ourselves to them,” Per says. “You have to ask yourself if it’s worth it — especially now when both me and Marie have a family.”

Gyllene Tider will re-release their first album to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the original release date. There are no plans to bring Gyllene Tider back on stage this summer. “Then there would be no audience for Marie…” Per grins. “But seriously, next time Gyllene Tider is on stage, we must have something new and fresh with us.”

This summer, Per will be spending time with his wife Åsa and son Gabriel in their luxury house in Sandhamn, Halmstad.

It figures... The album got delayed... Lets just hope they don’t end up releasing it in 2002! Why on earth do they need so many breaks!??

We’re all entitled to a few holidays every now and then ;)

Yes, but that’s when you spend time with familly. People that work on normal work places don’t get so many breaks. I don’t! Music is still a job from what I gathered...

Per and Marie have been working flat out for the last 15 years + on Roxette and various solo material.
Us having to wait a few more months isn’t going to hurt us.
And yes I expect being in the music buisiness is alot different from having a normal 9-5 job.

Good point Ef !
