TDR presents the new single sleeve


STOCKHOLM - The Daily Roxette presents the sleeve of Son of a Plumber's new single, along with a message.

Imagine the power of an iPod. During last winter, spring and summer a man transfered his favorite songs to his mp3-player. At the same time he rediscovered a lot of great pop he had forgotten. Soft pop, hard pop, weird pop, cute pop, tough pop - in short a whole lot of pop. He looked into the mirror and said "Son of a Plumber." Then he took his guitar and started writing. "C'mon"/"Jo-Anna Says" is the first single from the double-album "Son of a Plumber."

  "C'mon" is Per Gessle in a way you've never heard him before. Prince meets Sweet in a distant studio on the Skåne prarie. "Jo-Anna Says" is a classical song that sticks like an unwanted guest: Scaffold meets Mouth & McNeal in Top of the Pops. Son of a Plumber says "I've only tried following something that feels right. It's been as clear to me to do this album as it was when I did "Mazarin."

  A splendid time is guaranteed for all! Enjoy.

  TDR would also like to point out that "Keep the Radio On (This Is the Perfect Song)" will be added to the vinyl edition of "Son of a Plumber" as a bonus track and won't be available on the CD edition.

Update November 1: Now you can listen to snippets of "Jo-Anna Says" and "C'mon" on Son Of A Plumber official website.
