BYRON CENTER - The U.S. division of Amazon MP3 has Per Gessle's "Silly Really" available to download (for $0.99) with a release date of June 17, 2009 on Gessle's own Elevator Entertainment company.  No sign yet of the "Party Crasher" album, however.  Maybe this is a sign of more things to come for the U.S. market… at least when it comes to the digital realm?

Rockabilly version of “The Look” recorded by The Baseballs

Written by sleepingSingle on June 28, 2009 to .

BERLIN - The Baseballs, a German rockabilly/rock 'n' roll cover band (think Elvis Presley, think Stray Cats), has recorded Roxette's "The Look" for its new album "Strike."

Digger, the frontman, said in an interview in Münstersche Zeitung that "we wanted to give the album a personal touch. "The Look" was chosen by me. It refers to my musical beginning. It was my sister's first vinyl LP, the first song I could play on the keyboards."

Written by tevensso on June 24, 2009 to , and .

HALMSTAD (Updated) - Per Gessle has revealed on Twitter that his forthcoming live album will be titled "Gessle Over Europe," resembling Paul McCartney's tour name from 1972, "Wings Over America." There are "no further comparisons," says Per in his tweet. Per's live album will be released as a double-LP as well as a CD included with the DVD. Per seems to be very excited about it. "I received the album masters the other day and they sound terrific" Per says.

Per has also written on Twitter that the live recordings included on the album are from Cologne, London, Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Stockholm (day 2), Warsaw, Halmstad and Munich concerts. The LP will contain three, possibly four, bonus tracks, while the DVD will contain the full Stockholm #1 concert. EMI is working full time to get the material done before the vacations start and Per mentions the albums preliminary will be released early September.

Party Crash in the UK

Written by pwbbounce on June 15, 2009 to and .

Per Gessle's latest solo album "Party Crasher" finally sees the light of day in the UK today.  The UK edition will be the standard 12 track album.  However, it would appear that the album is not being sold in shops.  As far as The Daily Roxette has heard you can only order from online sites. 

All the major UK online retailers are stocking the UK release though, which of course is being released on Sony Records rather than EMI/Capitol.

Also, the release has re-appeared on the UK iTunes store…
