Gyllene Tider at No. 2 this week!

After spending 7 weeks at the top of the Swedish album charts, Gyllene Tider’s Dags att tänka på refrängen is No. 2 this week. You can find Black Sabbath’s new album (13) at No. 1.

GT’s 6th studio album can still be No. 1 next week, just think back that Finn 5 fel! was No. 1 for 6 weeks in a row, then it was No. 2 and became No. 1 again for one week. The already gold, platinum and double platinum DATPR record entered the charts on 3rd May, 2013. Gold status in Sweden is for the achievement of 20000 record sales, platinum is for 40000.

As Per informed us last week:

The Official Swedish album chart is based entirely on physical sales (no Spotify, no iTunes etc.), while the official singles chart is the opposite, based on streaming (since there are hardly any physical sales – only vinyl sometimes). Pls note: iTunes has, for some reason, decided to stay away from both official Swedish charts.

 

Fingers crossed for DATPR climbing back to No. 1 next week, but wherever the album is landing, it’s still No. 1 for us!

It’s great that the German fans are as excited about it as we are. Congratulations!” After the sold-out Open-air concerts in June Roxette will continue with a large arena tour in October 2011.

Gold with “Charm School” and “Way Out” second single in Germany

As EMI Germany proudly announces, the next single to be released out of “Charm School” will be “Way Out”, available digitally and on CD-single on June 10th in Germany. Roxette also have sold 100.000 copies of “Charm School” in Germany, which entitles them to the Gold award. The album already got awarded in Sweden and Switzerland.

Uli Mücke, Vice President New Music of EMI Music Germany says:

“Roxette are among the most successful and most likeable artists on the EMI roster. We are very pleased that this phenomenal comeback of the Swedes in cooperation with Star Watch Entertainment and Marek Lieberberg concert promotion and with great support by the radio stations has been successful.
