This is the music video of the new piano & vocals cover of the Roxette song ‘Things Will Never Be The Same’ that I have created in collaboration with the amazing soprano Kirine.
‘Things Will Never Be The Same’ is a great song by the swedish band Roxette which was included in their popular album “Joyride” back in 1991. Soprano Kirine and I decided to do a relaxing piano and vocals cover of this song in our own ethereal/ambient style as we both love it.
The story behind this cover:
One day I was checking the YouTube channel of soprano Kirine as I am a fan of her work and I found that she did an amazing cover of another song by Roxette entitled ‘Almost Unreal’. I felt in love with that cover so I got in touch with Kirine to ask her if she would be interested in doing a different cover of that same song together with me. She replied suggesting that we could do a cover of a different song by Roxette instead and she suggested the other song ‘Things Will Never Be The Same’.
This was another song I loved by Roxette so I immediately agreed as I knew that Kirine would do a great job with the vocal part.
We decided that for this cover, we would do a relaxing ethereal/ambient piano and vocals version as this is the type of music that we both create and resonates with us.
As expected, Kirine did an amazing job with the main and backing vocals parts.
Dedicated to Marie Fredriksson:
This cover of ‘Things Will Never Be The Same’ is dedicated to the loving memory of Roxette’s singer Marie Fredriksson who sadly passed away in 2019 after a long battle with brain cancer. She was one of Sweden’s most loved and successful artists.
