The swedish duo Roxette will celebrate their 20th anniversary with a new single, a greatest hits and a boxset. In the past 20 years their singles have topped every chart in the world including the Billboard Hot 100, where they’ve had four #1’s with "The Look", "Listen To Your Heart", "It Must Have Been Love" and "Joyride". Furthermore, two of their songs reached #2 on the same chart: "Dangerous" and "Fading Like A Flower (Every Time You Leave)". In 2002 Roxette was struck by tragedy when Marie Fredriksson was diagnosed with cancer. After extensive treatment and re-habilitation, Marie is now fully recovered and slowly getting back to recording and performing again. "Roxette Hits!" will be released on October 18 2006. It includes all their major hits and two brand new recordings: "One Wish" and "Reveal". On October 4, "One Wish" was released as the first single from the album. Roxette’s 20th Anniversary is also highlighted with the release of "The RoxBox 86-06", a special treat for true fans who thought they had everything. "The RoxBox 86-06" includes 4CD’s featuring all the hit singles and best album tracks, two new songs, rare recordings, demos, and much more. Included in the box set is also a 3 hour plus DVD with all their video hits and the previously unreleased complete Roxette MTV Unplugged TV show. Roxette have sold over 45 million albums and 25 million singles since their international debut in 1989.
