The Roxette singer is back with the single “I Want To Go” where she’s followed her love for blues and country music.

Earlier this year she surprised her fans with the jazz song “Alone Again”, teaming up with some of Sweden’s most prominent musicians on the subject. This time, Marie Fredriksson will immerse in the american music tradition on her new single “I Want To Go”.

The original song was written by J.B. Lenoir, a remarkably overlooked gem that almost sunk into obscurity. Now, more than 50 years after it’s birth, Marie Fredriksson reinvigorates this blues classic with a modern production and an unmistakable presence.

“I first heard this song about 25 years ago and I just loved it. 
I have kept it close to my heart ever since and to finally release my own version of it feels amazing.”
– Marie Fredriksson
