Russia: Roxette have written “a special song” for Oriflame

Last September we revealed that Roxette are set to play at Globen in Stockholm this summer (August 2012) on the special anniversary corporate event organized by the Swedish company Oriflame. In the beginning of May this year it turned out that Russian edition of “Travelling” does not include the very first international single “It’s possible” in both versions.

You may ask how those two things go together? Well, it turns out that Russian chapter of Oriflame claims that Roxette have written a special song for them. What’s its name? Yes, you’re right – “It’s possible”! In the end of May the 9th edition of the Oriflame magazine will be released together with a special bonus CD – including 11 Roxette hits and a new track called “It’s possible”. At this point we only know this will be released in Russia and will cost 99 rubles (ca USD 3.5). The artwork for both the cover and CD discs is shown above this text.

The tracklist for the album:
01. It’s Possible
02. It must have been love (Live in St. Petersburg)
03. Wish I could fly
04. How do you do! (Live in Stavanger)
05. Dangerous (Live in Stavanger)
06. Reveal (Attic Remix)
07. Speak to me (Bassflow Remake)
08. Dressed for success (Live in St. Petersburg)
09. Sleeping in my car (Live in Stavanger)
10. Real Sugar
11. Milk and Toast and Honey
12. Listen to your heart (Live in St. Petersburg)

“It’s Possible” video premiered in Germany and Austria as well

Roxette’s video to “It’s Possible” had its premiere this morning on Swedish TV4, even though only a few seconds were shown.
German/Austrian portal MyVideo premiered the video some hours later. The video can be watched here (works only from Germany or Austria)

For those having problems watching it, try to catch a working video at Youtube instead!

Update: According to Per, the videoclip was directed by David Nord.

Premiere of “It’s Possible” video on Swedish TV4 on Saturday

Per Gessle announced yesterday on Facebook that the video of “It’s Possible” will be premiered on Saturday March 31 on at Nyhetsmorgon, on the Swedish channel TV4.

Per will be in the TV studio for an interview as well. Normally the show is available online some hours after the TV broadcast.

Looks like the video premiere of It’s Possible + PG live interview in the studiosofa will be the real deal at Nyhetsmorgon, Swedish TV4 this Saturday at 10.30 am. Swell.

Update: Marie will join Per for the interview, which could already happen on 9.00 am!
The German video premiere will follow soon after, at 12.00 pm on MyVideo.de.

“It’s Possible” is record of the week at BBC Radio 2!

It was just per accident that we learned Roxette’s Travelling is “Record of the Week” on BBC Radio 2 in the UK. That means the single is getting special daily airplay. The website points to the single release on March 16. Let’s hope this promotion opportunity does more for the new single in the UK than it did for She’s Got Nothing On a year ago!

PS. Note that they misspelled the name to “It’s Impossible”. 😉

Update: Actually they write “Release date: 16 April”, not March. A physical UK release on the horizon?

Get prepared! Travelling Promo starting

With less than 2 weeks until the Travelling album launch, some promotion is kicking in. Roxette just got a new style for their iTunes homepage, where you can pre-oder the album:

Meanwhile we heard reports that TV spots for the first single It’s Possible started to air on German TV channel ProSieben. A result of EMI Germany’s ongoing label cooperation for Roxette.
