Marie and Per comment on US situation while on VIVA today
Marie and Per paid a visit today to the German radio/TV station VIVA. They answered several questions from Roxette fans and said that the “Room Service” album might be released in America this autumn after some preparations have been made. “Formerly,” Per said, “we had problems with the record company in the U.S., now the problem is that we can’t promote everywhere (at the same time).”
Roxette indicated they have plans to release at least four of the “Room Service” songs as singles. They also said that they will visit Vienna, Austria for promotion.
When asked about their favorite Roxette song, Marie answered “‘Perfect Day’… great song. By the way, it is very difficult to name one song as the best, but ‘Perfect Day’ I like a lot.” “‘The Look,'” said Per. “Great to have such a song… and ‘Stars,’ many people said it is not good, too much techno etc., but I like it.”
After the VIVA music channel visit, Roxette continued on to the “Top of the Pops” RTL television studio where they guest hosted the show. On Saturday, Ricky Martin, Christina Aguilera and some other very famous stars will visit TOTP – so Roxette is in good company. TOTP is one of the most watched TV music programs after VIVA.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Per also mentioned on the show that the new site at roxette.se will include a chat room, a forum, and a section where fans can “Ask Roxette.”
