Roxette Return With Cheeky New Single “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)”

Apparently Roxette’s Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson took one look at the recent (partial) reunion of fellow Swedes Ace Of Base and were like, “Oh, hell no!” The pair, whose last album came out in 2002, have been doing gigs together again since 2009, and are now set to release “She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)”—the lead single off their upcoming eighth album Charm School (out February 11)—next week in Europe. Give it a listen, and peek at the cover of Charm School, after the jump.

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.

Roxette Charm School

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?

    What a big mistake from EMI, Roxette are making beautiful singles from years. Big hits all around the world except in (North)America.
