A single is planned for release in January on an as yet undetermined label. Tretow suffered a stroke, but work later resumed with Anders Neglin. It is the first major outing for Agnetha in the last few years. She managed to attend and enjoy the concert in peace. She was not recognised entering the concert. After the concert she enjoyed dinner before returning to her home outside of Stockholm. As for this fan, I am overjoyed to see Agnetha look so happy. She has been through so much in the past few months.
I hope to see Agnetha enjoying life more and more as we wait for the release of her newest album this winter! A restraining order was issued against him inbarring him from trying to see or talk to the former ABBA vocalist, and he was deported to the Netherlands.

It has been 16 years since her last English album "I Stand Alone" was released. She has been working on this project in maximum secrecy. It is hoped that this new album will see a winter release. Sweden's most secretive recording project is taking form.
The project is surrounded by maximum secrecy. But now it is a fact. Her last new material was the album "I Stand Alone" from Recording of the backing tracks is almost done and she will soon begin to record the songs". Perhaps things will be clear by summer or early autumn", he says. This means the album can be released by winter. However, Agnetha herself contributed with a number of songs. According to our source of information it is pop. Agnetha has withdrawn from the limelight for many years.
Her shyness has created a Garbo-myth around the star. Will she venture abroad? Tretow announces that Agnetha is working on her new album. This is good news because the team are all back at work. No announcement was made as to when the album would be finished.
When Michael was asked the question, When will we be able to hear the results? They will co-produce the album. She will not use any of her own compositions, but instead will select from a large group of already submitted songs. It is indeed good news to hear Agnetha is in the studio singing again! I started to search for this article in the yearbut to no avail. I wanted it because I felt that when Agnetha's fans read it they would come to understand why she distrusts the press and also understand why she still feels that way today.
I had all but given up on the idea of ever locating this prized article when Guy Higby contacted me through a good friend and asked if I would like to have this article for Agnetha's Page. It took several months for me to be satisfied with not only the translation into English, but in addition I wished the article to appear as closely as possible with the original that was printed in "Dagens Nyheter"in Finally I feel it looks as good as the original article.
It has been a labour of love for several people. I wish to thank all of them for giving me this opportunity to share this with Agnetha's fans.
Again, I wish to gratefully thank Guy Higby for being patient while I awaited permission to show this article. The song material is already finished. The next step in the process is to eliminate a few songs since all of them won't fit on one album. After that, work on arrangements and instrumentation remains. Then the studio work can begin. In it the authors say that they can publish detailed information about what songs will be on the planned album.
The two authors also claim that they can reveal what the songs sound like. How does Agnetha view her career these days? But she's still a divinely gifted singer, and she's probably longing for it a bit. At the same time she's her own worst critic. I have promised an article from "Dagens Nyheter" and it will be uploaded very soon. This certainly shows once and for all what stress Agnetha felt during the time of this articles' publication as well as why she distrusts the press so much even to this day.
Solo career development — [ edit ] Although no official announcement was made, ABBA effectively disbanded in late to early The album became a moderate hit in North America and Australia, but reached the higher regions of the charts across Europe, including No. The song peaked at No. The album sold well in parts of Europe, peaking at No. The album contained songs for children and was sung in Swedish.
For the album Agnetha recorded duets with her son and a children's choir. Returning close to her home inhe was arrested and then banned from entering Sweden. Fans welcomed the autobiography. So this was an early incarnation of Abba?
Andersson 'It was not good. We were trying to be a little funny. Thank God there was no YouTube. We didn't like that. But we had to make a living. Then we said to Stig, "We want to do a pop record in English.
So we wrote a song called "People Need Love". And the girls sang and we did the backing vocals.
Abba’s Bjorn Ulvaeus: My new show will be an antidote to Brexit
And that became a hit, inin Scandinavia and a small hit in Germany and Holland too. We had a taste for it. That would have been absolutely disastrous! There wouldn't have been an Abba then! Andersson 'We were much more glam rock in '73 - we were all sequins, all four of us. In Brighton inAbba won Eurovision with 'Waterloo' and never looked back.
Experts might not have liked them, but the innocence of hits such as 'SOS' and 'Dancing Queen' appealed to an international audience. Ulvaeus 'This was the "marketing": That was the marketing! But we started making videos too.
I remember vividly seeing something with Barry Manilow, "Mandy". It was him and a piano - it was not meant for TV consumption. But we thought, "Why don't we make these little films into something TV stations would actually show? The Movie, which documented the group's tour of Australia and the high point of global Abba-mania. Andersson 'Well, we went down there fairly late. All the stuff with Mamma Mia! So when we came to Australia they had had so much Abba all around - Abba on pillows, Abba on soaps, Abba on everything.

Was that level of public adulation particularly hard for them? Andersson 'You'd have to ask them about that, but I think so. They did the hard work, once we were out of the writing. But by the early Eighties, the cracks were showing, personally and professionally. The touring became a grind. Andersson groans at the memories of the 'hundreds' of scheduled flights from Stockholm to different European cities. In Decemberthere came their last live performance: The girls embarked on solo careers with varying degrees of success.
But Abba and their deathless songs endured. The compilation Abba Gold was a huge seller. And then, incame Mamma Mia! Ulvaeus 'They think it's wonderful. I called them before we really started in earnest with the show here in London. They both would have said no to the story of Abba. But as it is they're OK with it. Andersson 'Well we had this wonderful letter from her. Her assistant came over to Stockholm with a CD and we played it. And we thought the record was great. But also realising that without the 'Gimme!
So we said, "Well, fine, of course you can. But we just split the copyright, half-half.
