Edel America Records – Roxette’s new label in the US

Roxette has finally found a suitable record company to release their material in the USA. Instead of choosing a giant like Sony or Warner, Per and Marie have reached an agreement with a smaller company called Edel America Records, whose parent, Edel Records, is based in Germany.

“We wouldn’t be an important artist for Sony or Warner. But for Edel, we are. We’ll get the highest priority there,” Per and Marie report in an interview published by Hallandsposten.

This new deal is the reason for the delay in the production of the new Roxette album. The album was supposed to be released in the autumn, but is now postponed until February 2001. Then it will be released world-wide — including the USA.

“Have A Nice Day” won’t be released in the US at all. However, Edel will release an updated version of the “Don’t Bore Us – Get To The Chorus” compilation in the autumn. The new version will contain “Wish I Could Fly” and “Stars” from “Have A Nice Day”.
