Per speaks about HAND’s lack of success
“Have A Nice Day” wasn’t as big a success as Roxette had hoped. The album has so far sold “only” 1.9 million copies. Per thinks there are several reasons for this.
“Looking back, I think now that the album feels a bit uneven,” says Per. “And, we simply chose the wrong single tracks.” Per thinks that “Wish I Could Fly” was a good choice, but the second single “Anyone” wasn’t. “Ballads traditionally are not very strong summer singles.”
“It was the English EMI that had pressure on us — against the wish from the European headquarters — to release ‘Anyone’ as the second single. And that’s what we did. But when it flopped, England didn’t want to release it at all.”
