“Room Service” officially out; Per and Marie comment
Today is the official release date of "Room Service" in many parts of the world. In Finland, for example, as in many other countries, the album was already in the shops over the weekend.
"We're #1 on the saleschart, #1 on the videochart Voxpop – which is a total suprise – and #1 on the Tracks radiochart, all in Sweden," said Per and Marie to The Daily Roxette today. "Needless to say, we're extremely happy! And it's going well in the rest of the world too."
The release date may vary in some countries. Typically, Roxette albums have not been released at the same time all over the world. Artists such as Madonna and Oasis have used worldwide release dates as a teaser to get everyone in the record stores on the same morning. This, however, would require tight cooperation between Roxette's record company's local offices around the world. Roxette's record company worldwide, except for the USA, is EMI.
Confirmed later release dates are April 30th for Australia and May 15th for Canada.
