On December 9, 2019, the music world was shocked by the news of the death of Marie Fredrikssonsinger of Roxette who died at the age of 61 as a result of a brain tumor that he had been fighting for a long time. Now, Per Gessle -founder of the iconic Swedish duo- announced the return of the group with a new partner: Lena Philipssonwho already worked with him in the 80s.

“It is impossible to replace Marie (Fredriksson) and I never had that intention. Our era as Roxette was an incredible fantasy that we were fortunate to share. I am excited to continue that journey, but with a new path. Of course, if Marie were here, I would do it with her,” said Gessle about this announcement that, without a doubt, impacts fans and raises certain doubts, since it is never easy to replace someone who has had so much influence on a project.

I want to keep Roxette’s legacy alive“, said the musician, who knew how to conquer the world with Fredriksson thanks to hits like “It Must Have Been Love”, “Listen to Your Heart” and “Joyride”. “These are my Roxette songs that I’ve been writing for over three decades. I’m not going to start a new duo. Marie will always be irreplaceable. However, I am very lucky to have found an incredible voice and a brilliant performer in Lena,” he revealed.

Philipsson, who represented Sweden in the 2004 edition of Eurovision with the song “It Hurts”, spoke about this new turn in his career: “I am excited to embark on this tour. I really want to work with Per, he is a phenomenal composer with inexhaustible musical strength.“.
