2016 ABBA related releases




2016 has been a lackluster year for ABBA releases. It is rumored but not confirm
ed that four  vinyl singles will be issued for the Arrival album's 40th anniversary.  Benny has produced an album by the Swedish all women folk group, Systerpolkan. The group features three nyckelharpa players and four fiddlers.The group most noted member is  renowned Swedish musician, Lena Willemark. It has been announced that Benny Andersson will record a solo  album of him playing piano, that will probably be released in Spring 2017.
A vinyl reissue of Frida's Djupa Andetag has been put on hold.  But it is confirmed that Frida is working with a Spanish musician on one song that will be released next year.

's newstudio album, their first studio album in a few years.  As usual Helen Sjoholm and Tommy Korborg are the lead singers.  The first single, due shortly, is ‘En natt i Köpenhamn’. A vinyl edition will be released as well.  Unusually,all but one of the eleven songs will have vocals. (This is the highest percentage of songs with vocals of  any BAO album.)  12 or 13 songs were considered for the album but so that the Vinyl and the CD releases will match, the extra one or two songs were left out.  All the songs are by Anderson-Ulvaeus except two.  One is  the Benny Andersson instrumental,  called "Smoochy" and the other is song written by Benny with Swedish lyricist singer, Frida Hyvönen called  "Isabella Rahm". The usual BAO members play on the album as well as  a new component -the  BAO-praos, who are ad hoc  group of eight female singers who are fans of the BAO.  They sing backing vocals on three songs.  The album is produced as usual by Benny Andersson. The arrangements are by Benny Anderssson and Goran Arnberg. The album was recorded at Rixmixningsverket studio on Skeppsholmen by Bernard Lohr.
