Roxette’s new single It Just Happens was first mentioned back lady October when singer Marie Fredriksson referred to the track in her autobiography Kärleken till livet, as a classic Roxette power ballad in the same vein as It Must Have Been Love, Spending My Time and Vulnerable. Songwriter and producer Per Gessle later confirmed on Facebook that it was nearly ready, calling it “big and bold and done with love” and they weren’t lying.
This is Roxette in their absolute element, a powerful belter that heralds in the Swedish stalwarts’ upcoming tenth studio album Good Karma – their first record since 2012’s Travelling – which will be released on 3 June, and is available to preorder now.
