Have A Nice Day Everyone! /P.

Roxette's 6th studio album, "Have a Nice Day" was released on cassette and CD in 1999, but never on vinyl (except for an unofficial UK release). Until now it seems! 🎶 There will be a limited edition yellow double LP released on 12th April! 😮 Nice way to celebrate the album's 20th anniversary, isn't it? Just in time for Record Store Day 2019! ✌ /PP P.S.: Do you look like Marie or Per on the sleeve when you read this news? 😂 /PP Source: Thanx for the hint, Attila Sós!

BEHIND MONO MIND - we conclude our little Mono Mind behind-the-scenes-with-Dr. Robot with this little baby. Thanks so much, Per, for putting this together for us. I FOUND MY SOUL AT MARVINGATE This is also quite an old one. I started writing it in the summer of 2013 and the working-title was “Mercy”. This is all about the chorus. Classic Roxette-style killer-chorus. You can arrange a song like this in so many ways and if you listen to the version that’s on the EP (not the album version which is the Sofa Tunes-remix) you can hear pretty classic rock style guitars in there, both in the verses and in the choruses. “Marvingate” is the only MM-track (so far) where we have used guitars a la power pop in the production. I didn’t use the EP-version on the album since I felt the Sofa Tunes-remix gave the album a more “groovy” touch. Dr. Robot sounds in top shape here. Love that voice. I wish I sounded like that for real when I’m answering the phone. Have you noticed the Rolling Stones-references in the lyrics? Jumpin’ Jack? Paint it, black? Neither did Christoffer and Clarence! Aaaaah, I’m so misunderstood! #behindmonomind

Some Sunday afternoon music for ya! Enjoy! /P.

Roxette - Fireworks

Yep, this is from today's HP interview, translated by the, as always, one-step-ahead RoxBlog. /P.

According to a recent Hallandsposten interview with Per Gessle, Mr. G started writing songs for the upcoming Gyllene Tider album already last spring. There are appr. 20 new songs and the guys will start working on them in spring, when they record the album in France. Where in France? They keep it as a secret to avoid drones circulating around the studio. Haha. Per's idea was to go back to a little "cleaner" sound that they had on the first two albums, remove the muscles they acquired in recent years.The album (no known working title yet) will be released before the tour. Christoffer will be the co-producer and there will also be a French assistant in the studio. Regarding the tour Per says that he and the other 4 Golden Guys were already talking about a 40th anniversary tour in 2013. Visually it will be a cool one and they will of course play their greatest hits, but the guys will sneak in some songs they haven't played before, or at least not in modern times. Jan-Owe Wikström tells it's logical to have the premiere gig in Halmstad, but how come it ends in Norway. Per's reaction is his typical cryptical answer, "who knows..." /PP The interview is available for subscribers only:

Gyllene Tider go on a farewell tour and release new album - RoxetteBlog

It will not only be an anniversary tour, but four decades, four million sold records and several record tours later, at the same time it will be a farewell tour. The word farewell sounds a ... R...

BEHIND MONO MIND - in the midst of all the Gyllene hoopla we go on with the stories from Dr. Robotnik. LALALOVE (L’Amour) Helena can have this very fragile tone in her voice which is extremely attractive and, to me, very French. When I heard her sing LaLaLove it reminded me of those wonderful Francoise Hardy and France Gall recordings from the ‘60s. Knowing that Helena’s husband, Martin, speaks French fluently I asked him if he could translate the second verse into French and he did. It’s funny how a song transforms when it’s sung in different languages. #behindmonomind

A nice one! /P.

BEHIND MONO MIND - from Dr. Robot himself. TELL HIM I SAID HI! The first recording of THISH was sung entirely by Dr. Robot and was called “Tell Her I Said Hi!”. It sounded fab. The sound of Dr. Robot’s voice on the verses on this one is truly amazing. It’s my favorite Dr. Robot-sound together with “Marvingate” and “Down by the Riverside.” However, when I suddenly had lots of Mono Mind-tracks piled up I felt I needed a little bit more “flesh and blood” when it came to the voices so I re-wrote it and re-recorded it and had Cooky join the party and sing on the choruses. I love this one and I especially adore Clarence’s hypnotic piano part in the middle. #behindmonomind

The truth. /P.

The Daily Roxette

BEHIND MONO MIND - from Dr. Robot himself. We have talked with Per regarding his new baby Mono Mind, and even though there are "no backstories to the new songs" it seems Per did have a few notes and tidbits he could share with us, and you! We have five of these nice stories. Here's the first: IN CONTROL This was the first song we recorded for the Mono Mind-project. At the time I didn’t have the Mono Mind name, the project was called “Honesty Jam” since the guideline was to follow ONLY my gut feeling and instincts (“honesty”) and mash ideas together with other people and collaborators (“jam”). Basically I just wanted to enjoy myself and screw around with my voice and my songs and see what happened. A little bit off-the-wall like the Son of a Plumber-project but, of course, totally different style-wise. The lyrics are actually a poem I wrote in 2013. The music was written on an acoustic guitar just like so many other songs I’ve done. The line “just leave it neat and tidy, no fake, no confusion, no cracks, no beginning, no end” was at one point the album-title since it was used in several songs. I placed it here and there then took it away. Now it’s only “In Control” and “Marvingate” that include it. I think. #behindmonomind
