Peas vanish from album titles and cover art

STOCKHOLM – The peas are gone… and possibly, we had something to do with it.

  In a move that is sure to please the multitude of TDR readers who posted comments here and in our SmallTalk forum expressing their dismay – disbelief even – when we first reported that the title “Love Peas” would be given to the upcoming compilation of slower-tempo songs, Roxette and EMI have dropped the “peas” concept and reverted to naming the album “Roxette: The Ballad Hits!”

  The decision to change the title and the packaging concept first came to our attention earlier this month when the listing changed on EMI Sweden’s list of upcoming releases.

  On the cover of the single, “A Thing About You,” the peas have been replaced with raspberries.
