Brits once again get to listen to new Roxette material

LONDON - Roxette's "A Thing About You" single has hit the airwaves in the United Kingdom and the "The Ballad Hits" CD it is intended to promote is slated for a February 3rd release — just before Valentine's Day on February 14th. The record company is hoping that the red raspberry heart featured on the cover will attract attention and help drive sales.

  The UK release will include the "limited edition" EP with four bonus tracks.

  ATAY has been added to the BBC's P2 playlist, and serviced to other radio stations as well. It's release is set for either February 3rd or 10th.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Meanwhile, in the United States, where the idea was also to take advantage of Valentine's Day as a logical tie-in for both a song titled "A Thing About You" and album cover art that features the ubiquitous red heart, these same releases have become "a long story" according to a source at EMI Capitol, and have been postponed.
