Through Fire To Donate Proceeds From Their Roxette Cover To Cancer Research


0

Through Fire have released a video for their cover of Roxette‘s 1989 hit “Listen To Your Heart“. The band recorded the cover earlier this year, including it on their album “All Animal“, which saw a release this past July on Sumerian Records. With last week’s unfortunate passing of Roxette singer Marie Fredriksson from cancer, the group have opted to donate their proceeds from the track to St. Judes. In a new statement regarding the cover and Fredriksson‘s death, the band commented:

Roxette‘s music has served as a soundtrack and inspiration for so many people. When recording our new album earlier this year, we decided to cover their classic ‘Listen to Your Heart‘. We always intended on the song being our second single, so went to L.A. several months ago to shoot the music video.

We were so excited to pay tribute and honor a legendary artist who had such a positive impact on us. We released the video on Monday morning, Dec 9th. However, the next day we were absolutely shocked and saddened to hear the news of Marie passing from cancer just hours after our video was released.

We dedicate the track and video to Marie‘s memory and have decided to donate a portion of the songs sales to St. Jude’s (www.stjude.org) in hopes of creating awareness and finding a cure for cancer.

We’re so incredibly sorry about the loss of such a music icon, our deepest condolences go out to her family, friends and fans around the world. Marie‘s music is timeless and her memory will live forever.”
