Omaha based hard rock quartet, Through Fire, have today released the acoustic version of their previously released cover of Roxette’s mega-hit ‘Listen To Your Heart.’ The band have also announced the release of the single bundle, which includes both the album and acoustic versions of the track.
Speaking on their cover of ‘Listen To Your Heart’ and the enormous impact Marie had on millions of music fans around the world, Through Fire have released the below statement:
“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 http://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.”
