“Time goes by so quickly. It’s not that long ago we spent days and nights in my tiny apartment in Halmstad, listening to music we loved, sharing impossible dreams. And what a dream we eventually got to share!
Thank you, Marie, thanks for everything. You were an outstanding musician, a master of the voice, an amazing performer. Thanks for painting my black and white songs in the most beautiful colours. You were the most wonderful friend for over 40 years. I’m proud, honoured and happy to have been able to share so much of your time, talent, warmth, generosity and sense of humour. All my love goes out to you and your family. Things will never be the same.

NEW MUSIC COMING UP FRIDAY MAY 29!

2nd week of May 2020. Sweden is going slow. Laying low with a guitar + an idea. Write a song about a mother. It's Mother's Day here in Sweden May 31st. Said + done. Turned out pretty good. Simple but strong.

Next day + next idea. Write a song about a father. Hmmm. Challenging. Exciting. Try different keys + angles. Find a proper one. Me = happy.

Hit the T&A studio in a rush. Coffee + creative explosions with MP. He insists I play all instruments myself. My God! Two afternoons go by before Helena pops up + sings for us. Magic!

Happy Mother's Day.

Next,.. you must make a Christmas special Album. We wait.. 🙂

I love your solo works but For me the most important day is Marie Fredriksson’s birthday. Nothing will undermind this date for me. Im still expecting for Bag of Trix release date and information. Thank you!!! 😘😘😘

All instruments played by you!! Sounds exciting!! Can’t wait hearing the results. Love U 🤗❤️

Sounds wonderful . Looking forward to this.

Always nice with real 7" vinyl record. Something new in the collection. L❤ve It.

Good luck with your solo carrer,we are with you.

Do you play all the instruments? I can't wait to hear that !! you always surprise 🤗

It is good that you continue your solo career. And I'm sure many people will adore this. But I would love to see published here in the Roxette' official Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram Marie 's solo work. Her musical legacy in English and in Swedish were amazing. I will always remember her even if she isn't here anymore. Thank you in advance. Love from Buenos Aires. And take care...

What's next? R.o.x.e.t.t.e.? Like Ace of base with new singers? Swedish artists: great genius but completely "strange"...

Best way to start the week, news about PG new song 🥰🥰🥰

“ simple but strong “ = like a mom. Happy Memorial Day from America.

Love you Per Gessle. I wish one day can tell you how you change my life and made me a better person. All the best!

Now that's pretty cool news! Can't wait. 😊

Keep on this creative explosion. We never have enough. More Gessle every month.

I'm a brazilian composer... all because of you. Thank You.

Wow thanks for the badge❤️

The "Per Gessle One Man Band" Tour somewhere around the corner? Good for social distance rules if there's just one guy on stage.

Uau....what's an amazing news... S2

New music. Sounds good

Looking forward to it

My mama / papa told me to stay out of trouble …

Awesomeness Per!!!!

We just can't wait!!!!😍😍😍

Love ..love..love 💖

Can't wait to listen 😀 ♥ 🇸🇪

"🎸🎉The guitar i like is a 36sg Gibson.This guitar is ideal for stage performances and concerts.

Les Paul "lagend" is " Slash"...... GNR forever......but "Roxette" also is the good band......i love the song of "It must have been love" n " Listen to your heart"...... It's the best...........

Per Gessle definitely you should do a post about all Your guitars over the years.... I especially love your white falcon, Chet Atkins, silver jet, country classic 2 😉, Brian setzer hotrod and I think it’s a smoke green streamliner centre block.... any other gretsches hiding away? Also much love for the snow glo 360 rickenbacker

Per I can only see you with a black Rickenbacker,Gibson 335 or a Gretsch double cut, rearly see you with a les paul. On the solo albums i have seen you with a Gretsch Electromatic jet(a world according to gessle), again the Gibson 335 and other acoustic guitars. With Gyllene Tider i have seen you with a red Telecaster custom, Gibson melodymaker and a Rickenbacker...along with MP's light blue fender stratocaster. I have also seen you with a Kramer or a sort of superstrat on some videos from the Pearls of passion area..you also used the red Tele custom im the beginning of Roxette.

Awesome guitars! You got such a great taste for them ❤️

Hot hot hot Marie! I love her look on this tour!! Wish I could have seen this concerts! Borgholm, my favorite one ❤️😍 But I was just a baby that time 😢😭

Oh man blast from the beautiful passed, only today we had a BBQ sound system put outside and put on a very old playlist I can't even remember it's that old, and what pops up Roxette - Things will never be the same Such great songs you guys made!

I Know Rickanbacker Guitar Through The Roxette Concert...are Amazing ,🥰🥰🥰

Both of you couldn't look cooler than that! Love you so much.❤️❤️

You should post an album with all of your guitars. I'm sure there are lots of stories associated to them that you could tell us ❤️

Love you both and love your guitars too.

The rocky side of Roxette is the best.

Love you both. Years go by and I still love every song. You're so special!

I'm so envious that you got to perform with Marie. I'm glad you found each other, your incredible songs needed an angels touch and by god did they get that.

Love the ricky 350L

Guitar Roxette was the best! ❤️

I loved that outfit on her. Sassy and feisty!

My favourites are the White Falcon and the blue Gretsch... Is it blue or purple?

amazing Marie .. in every photo in every song .. thanks Per ...Thanks Roxette ❤❤❤❤❤

I've always LOVED Marie's outfit on that video!

Nice!!!! Can you tell us more about your current and past guitars? Would be a lovely topic! 😍

That’s the hottest look Marie ever had!! That hair with this outfit and the guitar 😍😍

Looking cool, both of you and the guitars 🎸🎶😎

This looks like from the 1989 Look Sharp tour ! Both looking exceptional

Per's painted (and all of Jonas Isacsson's) Larrivee guitars were awesome.

eager for the launch. From Argentina Mono mind fans club.Thak You Per ❤❤❤❤

I cant wait for the release for this. It's so good

I loved it, Per. Personally I love "kissing is the key". Can't wait to listen all song 😍🇧🇷

Love the masks. Awesome work....

Brazil needs to be the first!!! ☺

Good thing I have my US iTunes account, haha

Really disappointed it's just an old song with a few new lyrics

I'll have to wait a week or so ...😄😘

Kinda got bored of the song 3 years ago already

So let's count the minutes to join the fight

Loved it!

Fighting for a Per Gessle LIVE! Fingers crossed 🤞🏻

Can't wait! 😀

Just got to hear it here in Australia... Kissing is the Key? Why is that? Biggest Gessle anti-climax ever.

Con Theme From Roberta Right reeditado seguro alcanzan una buena posición en los charts...

Ty🙌🏻🎶🇲🇽✨

💪🇺🇸😎🌎🎶🎉🤞🇨🇦

👏👏👏👏👏

BEAUTIFUL

Oh Per 😢 While I'm sure new listeners will appreciate the new single the true blue fans know that Party Crasher was a looong time ago. Disappointed 😞😥

I'm in for anything Mono Mind releases, since it was my fave album from 2019. But what I don't get it is why making a new version of "Kissing Is The Key"? Didn't know Per liked this song so much. To me is just a "ok" track, just like the new version (Fighting for the Future). Hoping there's more to come from Mono Mind this year. It would help a lot going through 2020.

Thank you Per , brilliant work by Dr.Robot and his gang 🤩👌💖
