Marie Fredriksson, the lead singer of Swedish duo Roxette, has died at the age of 61 following a battle with cancer.

Per Gessle, Fredriksoon’s bandmate in Roxette, wrote a message on social media confirming the news.

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! I’m honoured to have met your talent+generosity. All my love goes to you+your family. Things will never be the same.

Our thoughts are with her friends, family and fans today.
