Marie Fredriksson - The Change

2002 was a devastating year for Marie Fredriksson (mostly known for her part of the band Roxette). She was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. There was a chance of 5% to survive this horrible desease - and she did survive!

Two years later Marie released her first and only English solo album - The Change.
The disease and the following cure heavily influenced the songs on the record. The Change has become an intense, shattering and hopeful album.

In 2019 - after surviving the tumor for 17 years, three more Roxette and four solo records and touring around the world - Marie Fredriksson lost the fight against cancer. She passed away on December 9.
