The Daily Roxette presents to our readers: Marie’s new single!
STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) – The Daily Roxette is proud to present an advance preview of Marie Fredriksson’s new single: “2:nd Chance.” The song is being released to Scandinavian radio stations tomorrow (Monday).
“Oh thank God I’m alive…”
Update: Expressen’s Anders Nunstedt gives the single three stingers (out of five) today, and compares the song to The Beatles’ “Free As a Bird” like many already on The Daily Roxette. Other than that he says that Marie is hiding behind the English language, but he also adds that this kind of emotion may have been too much in Swedish. Nunstedt thinks that husband Micke’s music is weaker, while Marie’s lyrics and performance is strong. “After a few run-throughs the song’s bleakness dissipates,” Nunstedt says and concludes “Just give the song a second chance…”
Aftonbladet gives it three plusses (out of five) and calls it “…an intimate pop ballad with warm Jeff Lynne strings…”.
