Abba: Agnetha Faeltskog To Release New Album


Abba: Agnetha to release new Album Agnetha-1-244x130

Last Updated: 5:31PM 11/03/2013



Former Abba member Agnetha Faeltskog is coming out of retirement to release her first album in almost a decade.

The 62-year-old singer's record company said the release, called 'A', will come out on May 13.
Described in the media as being a recluse, the vocalist said in a statement she could not resist a return to the studio after nine years.
"I never thought I would sing again, but when I heard the first three songs I couldn't say no," she said.
"I hadn't written music in a very long time but when I sat down at the piano it came to me very naturally."
The first single from the album, 'When You Really Love Someone', was made available on digital music platforms iTunes and Spotify on Monday, along with a music video on YouTube.
The album includes the first track co-written by the star in decades, as well as a duet with British singer Gary Barlow of Take That.
On all the new tracks, Faeltskog collaborated with Swedish songwriter and producer Joergen Elofsson, who has penned hits for artists including Britney Spears, Kelly Clarkson and Celine Dion.
"She's a musician, a songwriter and singer who hasn't done that for a while. We saw her open up, become much happier, with music again in her life," he said.
Abba, one of the most popular and enduring bands of all time, formed in 1970 and shot to fame after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974.
The band, who have sold more than 378 million records to date, split up in 1982 and have never reunited.
Former member Bjoern Ulvaeus has said the four "will never appear on stage (together) again", adding that he wanted fans to remember the band as "young, exuberant, full of energy and ambition".

This will be issued as a single. Abba was one of those "soundtracks of your life" groups for me; listening to them brings back so many memories.

Agnetha has had a lot of health issues and personal difficulties over the years so it's good that she's making a comeback.

I used to dance and sing to "Dancing Queen" and feel sad listening to "The winner takes it all" Abba: Agnetha to release new Album 294124. Agnetha had just split from her Husband and although they denied it, I thought the song reflected it. Agnetha became a recluse so It's good that she feels able to work again, ABBA will probably remain the most popular Group for many years .
