Roxette filmed a very cool thing at X-Level Studios

As Per posted about it some days ago, Roxette was on a secret mission at X-Level Studios. However, the studios got a new name, it’s the earlier EMI studios in Skärmarbrink, Stockholm where Roxette, Per, Marie and GT worked a lot over the years. The legendary studio complex has been regarded as Sweden’s top music studio for 50 years and been a prime location for some of the biggest music names in the world.

You could see the pic attached to this article earlier as it was spreading on Instagram and now X-Level Studios shared it on their FB page stating:

Roxette (who recorded most of their albums here) were back to film a very cool thing that is coming out soon.

Roxette Cafe did a little investigation and found out that Legends Of Rock did a live recording at X-Level Studios, kind of an exclusive show for 50 guests. They filmed it together with interviews with the band members and planned to release it as a CD/DVD package. This is said to be the first concert in a planned long series by X-Level.

Can the stuff recorded by / for Roxette be related to that series? It will turn out soon. Again this word ”soon”. Well, Legends Of Rock recorded their thing in April 2013 and at the end of 2014 they were still only planning to release it. Maybe it’s already out since then.

So this ”soon” seems to be Per’s soon again. But since there is a new single release soon, then a new album release soon, then (or even earlier) the Roxette Diaries movie release soon, we can just put this X-Level Studios recording on our list of soons. It’s a pretty eXXXciting list anyway, isn’t it?
