  1. That straight guy Beatles stanning thing I fail to understand.
     
  2. Update from Official Roxette:

    "Let Your Heart Dance With Me” is one of the very last songs recorded by Marie and myself, made during the Good Karma-sessions in 2016.
    We never finished it at the time since we felt we didn’t need it on the album. This summer, however, it was finally mixed and it sounds great.
    Now the time has come for it to rise and shine!
    Release Friday October 2nd.

    “To celebrate this I will do an exclusive interview + answer your questions LIVE on the ROXETTE YOUTUBE CHANNEL at 16.30 CEST this Friday October 2nd: youtu.be/-WduaN9PSs4
    We’ve also put together a beautiful music video for the song including private footage from the glorious past.
    Can’t wait to watch it together with you – our fans - who made it all possible. /P.”

    You can hear a 30 second clip of the song online as well on Warner Music Sweden’s Facebook. Sounds better than a few of the Good Karma songs.

    Also looks like the first Volume of “Bag of Trix” will be released on the 30th October.

  3. The drum production in particular sounds clunky, and I don't like that Marie's parts are so low in the mix, but that melody is classic Roxette. The whistle part could have come straight out of one of their early 90s hits.

  4. I really like the song, but I agree about Marie's parts. They're too low and sounds mixed together with Helena's voice.

  6. Glad to see that there will be physical releases of this and a 7" of the single.
    Hopefully working pre-order links will be up soon. Was there a release date given?
     
  7. I want to like this new single so badly but it's not doing much for me.
     
  8. It could use more Marie vocals but it's a nice tune, I like the Joyride era whistling. It does sound very early 90s classic Roxette.
     
  9. It's lacklustre sadly - but then that's the reason it wasn't released before I guess. It's also really distracting to my ears that the word 'heart' barely exists in the chorus leaving it sounding like she's singing 'let your dance with me.' That said, Marie's stunning voice will always be welcome and it's a nudge to revisit Roxette at their best.

  11. Nice to hear Marie but it isn’t a great song.
     
  12. Is it Marie on the backing vocals in the verse? Because otherwise, she's just singing the lines of the chorus that don't even make up the full title, and I can't help but wonder if that's literally all she recorded and Per has built a song around it - maybe "let your" and "dance with me" come from 2 different places, as it's a bit weird that the word heart is missing (or sounds as if it is).

    He strikes me as someone who would always be upfront about how a song has come together, but you can't blame him for wanting one last new song with Marie on it, even if it's literally a couple of lines on a loop. But maybe I'm wrong and it was a completed demo.
     
  13. She sings “let your-heart“ very quickly but it’s there.

  16. Is this due to get a UK release. I have had a look but can't see anything.
     
  17. Per was asked on YouTube if there would be an anniversary edition of Joyride next year and he said something along the lines of that they would need to to something.
