The group that is, perhaps, Sweden’s second biggest musical gift to the world, Roxette, have released a new album, Good Karma, in much of the world.
In their home country, Roxette had eighteen top ten hits between 1986 and 2006 while, in the U.S., they had six, four of which went to number 1 (Listen to Your Heart, The Look, It Must Have Been Love, Joyride). Ironically, the much more revered ABBA only had four U.S. top tens and one number 1 (Dancing Queen).
After a short break where Per Gessle reformed his original band, xxxxx, and Marie Fredriksson released a solo album, the pair came back together for their tenth studio album which includes the single It Just Happens.
