AGNETHA MAKES A UNIVERSAL RETURN
With these words, one of popular music’s most recognisable, celebrated names of the past 40 years – Agnetha Fältskog – signals her return to the spotlight. The siren songstress from ABBA is coming back with a new album, due for release this May, preceded by a curtain-raising track, “When You Really Loved Someone.”
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 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 brand new material will be released this spring by Verve Records.
