Roxette singer Marie Fredriksson has passed away at the age of 61 following a very long battle with brain cancer.

Bandmate Per Gessle used social media to confirm the news, writing “Time goes by so quickly. It’s not that long ago we spent days+nights in my tiny apartment sharing impossible dreams. And what a dream we eventually got to share!” he wrote. “I’m honoured to have met your talent+generosity. All my love goes to you+your family. Things will never be the same.”

Our condolences go to Marie Fredriksson’s friends, family and fans.
