PG Roxette Announces New Album ‘Pop-Up Dynamo!’
PG Roxette – the new project from Per Gessle of Roxette – will release a new album, Pop-Up Dynamo!, on 28 October.
Pop-Up Dynamo! finds Per Gessle continues the adventure he and Marie Fredriksson began with Roxette, over 35 years ago. Together with members from the classic Roxette band and a sound echoing somewhere between Look Sharp! and Joyride. The album will be released on standard 140g black vinyl, 140g white gatefold vinyl accompanied by an 8-page booklet and exclusive photos, CD and digital.
Last week saw the release of the second single from the album, Walking On Air. Per explains: “Walking on Air was the very first song written for Pop-Up Dynamo! I got a request to write something for the Top Gun movie in the fall of 2019. So I wrote Walking On Air.”
Per is joined by two other singers: Helena Josefsson and Dea Norberg. Both have been in the inner circle of Roxette for years. “It’s impossible to replace Marie and that was never my intention. Our Roxette era was an unbelievable fantasy that we got to share together. I’m excited to be able to continue this journey, but in a different way. Needless to say that if Marie was still here, we’d be doing this together” says Gessle.
“I want to keep the legacy of Roxette alive. I’ve written almost every song Roxette has recorded over the years and they mean the world to me. Hence, I feel this is the right decision. I’m so proud of this body of work and I love working with these people”.
