“The Change”- new album by Marie Fredriksson

STOCKHOLM (UPDATED) - Marie Fredriksson is back after two years of medication and darkness (and it's been eight years since her last release, not counting the greatest hits album "Äntligen")! Together with her husband Micke Bolyos, Marie has transformed sorrow and pain into lyrics and music, full of vital power and confidence.

  Her new solo album, "The Change," will be released in Sweden on October 27 with the first single "2nd Chance" – a love song that took Marie only ten minutes to write the lyrics for – out on October 6. "A second chance… that's exactly how I feel when I wake up. I'm eternally grateful for every day," Marie says.

  "Making 'The Change' feels like a victory to me. An incredible cool and fantastic feeling that's hard to describe in words," Marie Fredriksson says in a press statement released today and sent to The Daily Roxette.

  Marie has had thoughts and plans of a solo album in English for a long while. "Suddenly it felt necessary to do this. I wanted to share emotions and experiences from our worst time. There were moments where I thought I didn't have the strength to finish the work, but I got by, little by little."

  For the album Marie and Micke gathered their favorite musicians; Staffan Astner, guitars; Peter Forss, bass; Nicci Notini, drums. Magnus Lindgren and Micke are responsible for most string arrangements on the album. Micke has also produced "The Change" and additionally he plays the keyboards.

  This is an international release, but the release dates in the various countries are different and not yet set.
