Per Gessle on radio interview: “We are preparing new songs”

Per Gessle was interviewed on KFM radio, Cape Town. You can listen to the interview here.

Per talked about how he met Marie, that they’ve never been together as a couple, and goes very fast through Roxette’s career.

He also revealed that this tour will go “waaaay into next year” and that they are “preparing new songs meanwhile travelling because if you are on the road like this, this becomes your life style”.

“She’s Got Nothing On (But The Radio)” reaches #9 on the World Chart

Roxette’s first single off “Charm School”, “She’s Got Nothing On (But the Radio)”, has hit #9 on Radio Express’ World Chart. This means that Roxette’s song is the 9th most played song on this planet!

Roxette’s song has been on the list for 12 weeks now and has been climbing from #12 two weeks ago, to #11 last week and #9 this week. Current #1 is Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, followed by Rhianna’s “S&M”.

And this is how the World Chart is created: every week Radio Express compiles the World Chart by tabulating the most listened-to pop songs on the planet, based on the playlists of 100s of top radio stations worldwide.

Together with the chart, Radio Express offers The World Chart Show, “which is available fully produced in a 2-hour English version presented by Lara Scott or in a easy-to-assemble version for local co-producers. There are 48 minutes of program time per hour.”

The World Chart Show also has a Facebook page.
