Agnetha is recording again

Hot on the heels of the news of ABBA The Museum and the ABBA figures at Madame Tussauds comes the surprise revelation that Agnetha is recording new material!

Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet reported on Thursday that Agnetha has been in the studio with Swedish songwriter and producer Jörgen Elofsson. Elofsson’s website shows a list of dozens of international and Swedish stars for whom he has written and produced songs over the last two decades.

Agnetha’s long-time spokesman Staffan Lindé confirms that Agnetha has indeed been recording.

Unlike her 2004 album My Colouring Book, which featured Agnetha’s recordings of songs from the 1960s, the new album promises to be new songs. Whether this will be songs written by Elofsson, Agnetha or both is not clear. The finished product is expected to be released by Universal Music, bringing Agnetha back to the same company that releases ABBA for the first time since 1985.

I’m a little cynical about the timing of the news, coming just one day after the announcement of ABBA The Museum. It seems timed to tag on to the media reports about the museum (which it has), just as news of My Colouring Book coincided with ABBA and Mamma Mia! anniversary events in 2004.

    who really cares about the museum or mamma mia! when it’s about a new album by Agnetha ?
    it’s a major event since the last one in 2004 , since Frida seems to throw songs on less known artists records !

  3. Carissa Higham Says:

    I think its wonderful about Agnetha’s new album. I can’t wait to get it as soon as it comes out.

    Hungry for more info on Agnetha’s new album. Can’t wait to hear it. Hoping its released in Australia!

  5. Chris UK Says:

    Agnetha Faltskog is my favourite female singers of all time and I agree that the news of her imminent 2013 studio album is far more greater news than hearing boring stuff like wax models and BAO (yawn!) or for Christ’s sakes Mamma Mia musical. Agnetha is the true artist and the buzz around her is deserving!

  6. Joann Dolce Says:

    I hope it will be recorded in English and released in the USA. I love Agnetha’s voice.

  7. Gil Fuentes Says:

    I agree, Chris UK!
    These are exciting news!

    Nothing wrong with Agnetha tagging along with ABBA happenings. Have you forgotten what the first A in ABBA stands for ? She is responsible for 1/4 of everything ABBA represents. Of course there are those of us who think the proportion is much Higher. Maybe without Agnetha there never would have been an ABBA at all. Maybe that’s what BJorn was thinking when he robbed the cradle. (Listen again to I was a flower)

  9. Roll Sullivan Says:

    Maybe the way she was treated by the others they owe her way more than she owes them. Most critics will tell you that she was the rock that ABBA was built on. Don’t speak ill of Agnetha; many trolls before you have have seen to that In over abundance. Don’t beat a woman who has already been severely wounded by those she trusted. Thank God for Karma.
