Interview on Australian radio about new ABBA music

On Friday morning, just hours after the announcement of the ABBA Voyage album and digital concert, I was interviewed on Perth radio station 6PR talking about the new music and my book ABBA: Song By Song.

ABBA: Song by Song

22 February, 2020

On 6 March 2020 my first book ABBA: Song by Song is published.

Writing a book about ABBA has been a long-time dream of mine. I’ve had a few ideas over the years, including writing a book about all of ABBA’s songs. Not just the 98 songs released on record between 1972 and 1982, but those they performed in concert, on TV, and radio that were never released, and those few that they tried to hide but were released years after ABBA ended.

I was approached by a British publisher, seeking someone to write such a book about ABBA for their expanding Song by Song series. After submitting a couple of test entries, they accepted me to write the book for them. Though it contains no direct input from ABBA themselves, it does contain a wealth of facts and quotes gathered over the past 44 years.

I’ve even been able to include details of the new songs announced by ABBA in 2018, to be included in the new digital ABBA-tar experience. At the time of writing, the songs have yet to be heard by the world.

ABBA: Song by Song is published by Fonthill Media. It is available in both paperback and ebook. See here for more about the book, plus links to order.
