Roxette last topped the U.S. Hot 100 chart nearly 20 years ago, with their energetic jam “Joyride.” Meanwhile, Crash! Boom! Bang!, their last album released in America, came out in 1994.
Says an EMI press release:
“The chances of Roxette recording a new album looked slim in autumn 2002 when Marie Fredriksson was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Thankfully she defeated the illness and the seeds of Charm School began to be sewn last year when she was reunited on stage with Per Gessle to perform Roxette’s massive global hits ‘It Must Have Been Love’ and ‘The Look’ during one of Per’s live gigs in Amsterdam.”

Hopefully the label also gives the pair another shot in the States, as well, with “She’s Got Nothing On”, because if Per Gessle’s composition proves only one thing, it’s that he’s still at the top of the game when it comes to Swede pop perfection.
We think Roxette are still looking sharp. What say you?
