And here come the lyrics of the new songs.

01. Me & You & Terry & Julie

Terry is an old teacher
He’s reading the paper in the church
Julie used to be famous
Portraying the bright-eyed Mother Earth

But how about you?
Do you want a love that lasts forever?
But how about you?
Do you want to spend the night together?

With someone so blue
That she doesn’t know what to do
Loves a big hole in her shoe
That’s the truth
How about you?

Terry’s folding the paper
And yawns at a Headline ???cocking crew???
Julie thinks he’s a charmer
Cause hes got the proper attitude

But how about you?
Do you want a love that lasts forever?
But how about you?
Do you want to spend the night together
With someone so blue?
That she doesn’t know what to do
Loves a big stone in her shoe that’s the truth
How about you

Whooo yeah
Whooo yeah
But how about you?
Dont you want a love that lasts forever?
Do you want to spend the night together
With someone so blue?
That she doesn’t know what to do
Loves a big thorn in her shoe that’s the truth
How about you?

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.

Two extra songs on the vinyl edition of TRAVELLING

According to the Swedish online shop Cdon.se – the LP version of forthcoming Roxette TRAVELLING album will include two bonus songs – demo version of “Me & You & Terry & Julie” – strangely recorded on June 9, the day Roxette played concert in Bergen, Norway and still tagged as Tits & Ass song (this studio is situated in Halmstad) and long-awaited “Charm school” demo.

Per Gessle confirmed that on Facebook by saying

Global Repertoire Labelcopy Document

EMI Music has prepared a Global Repertoire Labelcopy Document, which includes some interesting pieces of information regarding the forthcoming TRAVELLING album. There are some mistakes as well, so please don’t regard this as the final document.

All songs were mixed at Aerosol Grey Machine in Vallarum – except no 11 “The weight of the world” mixed in Polar Studios in Stockholm. According to the document only “Me & You & Terry & Julie” was mastered outside Sweden in USA, but it seems this is wrong information as “mastering location” is Stockholm. Stockholm is not in US, isn’t it?

3 songs – “Turn of the Tide”, “Perfect Excuse” and “Easy Way Out” were recorded in South African yet unknown hotel – though two first tracks are being labeled as recorded in “Sweden” after all. One songs comes from Rio de Janeiro and one from Dubai. There is only one song being written by Marie Fredriksson and it’s “See Me”.

TV Promotion in the works!

It looks like Roxette will promote the new album on the Swiss TV show “Benissimo“‘s 100th anniversary. The show will be aired March 24, 20:05 CET. Probably a sign for more TV appearances to come, right?

There will be sights of Roxette on German TV with no doubt since TRAVELLING will be released under the same label/TV channel cooperation as CHARM SCHOOL, which was promoted with numerous TV spots.

Thanks to Cathérine Frei and Roxette Café for finding out!
