LIMITED COLLECTOR'S EDITION that includes Marie's 2004 English-language solo album The Change on CD-previously unreleased in any physical format in North America-as well as bonus track "Sea of Love" (2017), the last song that Marie recorded. This edition also contains silver foil gilded page edges and a blue satin ribbon marker.
Listen to My Heart is a completely candid and passionate, heartbreaking yet often witty life story of one of rock music's most resilient lead singers, Marie Fredriksson from Roxette ("It Must Have Been Love," "Listen to Your Heart," "The Look," "Joyride").
Given only a few months to live following a harrowing diagnosis in 2002-yet surviving for 17 more years, until 2019-Marie boldly forged ahead into a life with newfound courage and inspiration. She continued as both a solo singer and with Roxette, where she performed over 550 concerts to millions of fans, sold 75 million records, and released over 50 singles including several global hits. In all, Roxette is Sweden's biggest music group-second only to ABBA.
Filled with behind-the-scenes stories involving everyone from Tina Turner and Elton John to The Rolling Stones and Frank Sinatra, Listen to My Heart also explores her humble family beginnings, an early tragedy in the sudden loss of Marie's sister, her transition into the music industry as a solo artist, and the formation and challenges of being in one of the world's most successful pop groups. All while trying to maintain a stable marriage and being a mother to two young children in the face of a life-altering illness.
Heart-wrenching yet winning, and told with exceptional energy and sincerity, Listen to My Heart sheds new and revelatory light on the life and work of one of our generation's most talented and courageous artists.
Contains a foreword by Marie's longtime friend-director Jonas Åkerlund, a new afterword by co-author Helena von Zweigbergk, and over 100 personal photographs, live/backstage shots, and memorabilia images.
