Billboard reveals more details of US album

Edel America Records (EAR) has announced a U.S. licensing deal for Swedish pop duo Roxette. The band remains affiliated with EMI in other territories. The first release under the deal will be the compilation "Don't Bore Us — Get To The Chorus," which has sold more than 4 million copies since its international debut in October 1995.

A Todd Terry remix of last year's international release "Wish I Could Fly" is being added to the U.S. version of the compilation. EAR expects to release a new studio album by the band in May 2001.

Editor's Note: Billboard got this wrong. An EAR spokesperson told TDR that the remix will not be on the album. (Lars-Erik)
