Abba's AGNETHA is back with new single and album

AGNETHA 
MAKES A UNIVERSAL RETURN

Songstress from ABBA has new album ‘A’ due on May 13th
Brand new single “When You Really Loved Someone” available from today

“I never thought that I’d ever sing again. But hearing the first three songs, I just couldn’t say no!”

With these words, one of popular music’s most recognisable, celebrated names of the past forty years – Agnetha Fältskog – signals her return to the spotlight. The siren songstress from ABBA is coming back with a new album ‘A’, due for release on May 13th and preceded by a curtain-raising track, “When You Really Loved Someone," which is available from today:


Agnetha has been working with renowned, Grammy-nominated songwriter/producer Jorgen Elofsson – who has been responsible for hits by Britney Spears and Kelly Clarkson among others – and acclaimed producer/arranger Peter Nordahl. 

“She wanted to make music again,” says Elofsson, “We could feel that. She had been thinking about it. Basically, she’s a musician, a songwriter/singer who hasn’t done that for a while. We saw her open up, become much happier, with music again in her life.” 

The album features 10 tracks, including ‘I Should’ve Followed You Home’ - a duet with Gary Barlow – and ‘I Keep Them On The Floor Beside My Bed’, one of Agnetha first co-writes in many years: “I hadn’t written any music for a long, long time,” she says. “But I sat at the piano, and suddenly it was there.”

Anticipated by millions of ABBA fans worldwide, Agnetha’s new album will be released by Universal Music Group. Max Hole, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Universal Music Group International, added:  “You can imagine the excitement that all of us felt at the prospect of Agnetha making new music. So we were determined that she would choose Universal to bring that music to the world, and we are gratified that she did. This is a dream project for so many people inside our company, and for Agnetha's fans around the globe.”

The most anticipated new album of 2013, ‘A’ was recorded and produced by Jörgen Elofsson and Peter Nordahl:  “We wanted to make this as if Agnetha hadn’t entered ABBA,” says Elofsson. “We were interested in what she would have sounded like if she hadn’t been in the group. And yet it’s important that she comes across as we remember her to be.”

The tracklisting for ‘A’ is:

1.            The One Who Loves You Now
2.            When You Really Loved Someone
3.            Perfume In The Breeze
4.            I Was A Flower
