Ex-ABBA character Agnetha Fältskog has signed with Universal Music to release her twelfth solo LP, ‘A’, and a “curtain-raising” new single titled ‘When You Really Love Someone’. ‘A’ is out on 13 May, whilst the track is purchasable right now.

“I never thought that I’d ever sing again, but hearing the first three songs, I just couldn’t say no!”, says Fältskog, whose co-wrote parts of the album with Jorgen Elofsson, Grammy-nominated author of Britney Spears’ ‘Sometimes’. “I hadn’t written any music for a long, long time, but I sat at the piano, and suddenly it was there”, she adds.

Excitable UMG don Max Hole shares his views, which are: “You can imagine the excitement that all of us felt at the prospect of Agnetha making new music. So we were determined that she would choose Universal to bring that music to the world, and we are gratified that she did. This is a dream project for so many people inside our company, and for Agnetha’s fans around the globe”.
