Roxette becomes PG Roxette when Per Gessle recruits new singers

Roxette becomes PG Roxette when Per Gessle recruits new singers

Since singer Marie Fredrikson passed away on December 9, 2019, Roxette partner Per Gessle really didn’t know what to do with the band that made the two friends global stars in the ’80s and ’90s.

But now he put his foot on the ground. Roxette continues under the name PG Roxette. A new single is already coming in May, an album in September and has a big tour on it. Per Gessle shares the song with Helena Josefsson and Dea Norberg, both long-time members of the expanded Gessle music family both solo and with Gyllene Tider and Roxette.

The album is already ready

– It’s not possible to replace Mary, and that’s not something I want either. It was a wonderful era and dream we shared together. But it’s exciting to be able to continue this journey – albeit in a different way. If Marie was still alive, we would of course have done it together,” Geisel says in a press release.

The new album is already ready, in the studio were the old Roxette musicians: Jonas Isaacson, Clarence Oformann, Magnus Burgesson and Christopher Lundquist. Of course, the missing drummer Billy Alsing, who died in 2020, was missing.

“Very cool curious”

The new material looks really cool. It’s not always easy to renew when you’ve been around for as long as you’ve been around. Sometimes you feel like you’re repeating what you’re saying, but sometimes you end up on untracked ground and become wonderfully curious, and then I feel like this is my life, and that’s what I can do, he continues.
