ABBA to write first music since 1982

Who would have ever have believed they would ever do it. The anticipation of catchy pop tune is exciting!

Sung by your grandparents?

But, if the Strolling Bones can do it, why not IKEA ABBA?

Re: ABBA to write first music since 1982

I wonder when will Donald take the credit of the ABBA reuniting and releasing two new songs?

Well at least it should be better than most of the stuff that passes for music these days.

Re: ABBA to write first music since 1982

Mehh, yet another group that wants to (perhaps needs to) cash in a second time on their past achievements.

But then atain, perhaps they're simply jealous of Adele who, as rumors claim, has been offered €60mln a year plus benefits if she agrees to perform in Las Vegas.

I doubt it since they turned down an offer of $1billion to do a world tour back in 2000.

Re: ABBA to write first music since 1982

and they don't need the money neither, by 2015 they had sold over 375 million copies and continue to sell, royalties and sales income will mean they will never want, they have also been busy individually since breaking up.

Re: ABBA to write first music since 1982

Benny Andersson released a rather listenable solo piano CD in the last year - unlike Avicii who was ripped and stripped of desire by the industry, my suspicion is that ABBA feels the urge

Re: ABBA to write first music since 1982

And under the question: "What did the Nazis do for us...?" Apart from VW, Fanta and Hugo Boss among others, we got Abba.
Annifrid Lyngstadt is a so-called Tyskerbarn, a product out of the NS eugenics breeding program "Lebensborn"
Try getting that under in a Pub quiz.

Re: ABBA to write first music since 1982

Yes he's looking for a Nobel peace prize so I am sure he will take the credit for ABBA reuniting. Mamma mia here we go again!

So what. Michael Jackson sold more, perhaps twice that, and didn't need to share the royalties among four. But he still managed to overspend.

Also keep in mind that not all the royalties are split by 4 with ABBA. The guys wrote most of the songs, so they get songwriting royalties in addition to any recording/performance royalties.

I can't find it now I but back when Mamma Mia came out I read an article that said the women of ABBA wouldn't receive much from the movie royalties since they didn't write the songs.
