TT (Swedish news agency) has published a few more details about the release of Marie’s upcoming album. The single “Kom vila hos mig” will be out on Wednesday this week (Sept. 25) and the album “NU!” will be out end of November. Marie tells TT that she really looked forward to releasing an album in Swedish, “time goes by so fast and after I got sick I didn’t manage to do more.” As we all know, Roxette got “inbetween”: they recorded two albums and went on a world tour which started in 2010 and ended in 2012.
Marie’s husband Mikael Bolyos has written most of the songs, but they have also worked with various songwriters such as Per Gessle – as Marie revealed in an interview with us a few weeks ago -, Uno Svenningsson, Kenneth Gärdestad, Ulf Sagerström or Johan Kinde. Marie also tells that her voice has changed, “it has become darker”, but she thinks that all in all her voice has become better.
TT also reveals that Marie is working on a book about her life and that Marie already chose the author she will work with for this project. Besides that, Marie explained that Per is already writing new material for a Roxette album.
Marie also says that her only wish at the moment is to hit the road and play live, and meet her fans. This will hopefully happen next year.
