This unique American edition is now also available in Sweden. The album is a reworked edition of the previously released collection “don’t bore us - get to the chorus!”.

For several years there has been silence about Roxette in the United States, but this year, a new attempt is being made to conquer the great country in the west. Roxette has, as is well known, had outstanding success in the USA earlier in their career with e.g. four #1 singles, million-selling albums, and successful tours. Now is the time to re-establish Roxette in the US, and they do so by releasing a reworked version of the compilation album “don’t bore us - get to the chorus!”. One of the new songs on the album is the single “Wish I Could Fly.” The single, which was a huge hit in Europe, has been warmly received by both radio and the press and is currently spinning on American radio.

Roxette now spends a few hectic weeks in the US for promotion and smaller live gigs and there doesn’t seem to be any danger that they would be forgotten in the US. Their old hits are still played on the radio, and “Wish I Could Fly” is now being added to more and more stations, and we are keeping our fingers crossed that this is the beginning of a new era of greatness for Roxette in the USA.
