Roxette’s Marie Fredriksson passes away

Another sad day for the music industry as iconic Roxette front woman Marie Fredriksson has succumbed to cancer after a 17 year battle with the disease.

One of the most dynamic talents to break out of Sweden Marie’s powerhouse vocals took Roxette to the top of charts with numerous hit singles including – The Look, Listen To Your Heart, Dangerous, and Joyride to name a few.

Both myself and Tony send our condolences to Marie’s family, friends, and band mates. While her incredible voice is no longer with us it will continue to live on through an amazing body of work.

Huey Lewis & the News drop another single from upcoming album – Weather.

While it’s been nearly two decades since ’80s mainstay Huey Lewis & the News released an album’s worth of original material with 2001’s Plan B, Huey and the guys have proven that they still know how to craft catchy pop/rock numbers that stick with you long after the first listen. The band’s previous single Her Love Is Killin’ Me feels like it would be right at home on the seminal masterpiece that launched their careers – Sports.

Now right in time for the holiday season HLN have premiered the next single – While We’re Young over on their official YouTube channel. Featuring a seamless blend of guitars, horns and smooth harmonies if Her Love Is Killin’ Me plays like a long lost Sports outtake While We’re Young would have no problem fitting in on 1988’s vastly underrated Small World.

Weather is set for release on Valentine’s Day – February 14th, 2020.

Every studio has its own life to it, kind of special energy. It felt very creative. I didn’t have any expectations of what I wanted to happen, it was just kind of coming in here and seeing where it took us, and it was surprising.”

On his selection of Prince covers, he says, “It’s impossible to choose a cover of Prince. He’s a big influence for me, an inspiration.”

The EP is now available exclusively on Amazon Music, but you can watch a video of its recording process above.
