Who's up for a new album then?

They lined up a couple of new songs to be released late 2018 but it didn't happen, and now reports are coming in that they are releasing a new album and aiming for September this year (pending #COVID1984)

I love ABBA and always have. I was introduced to them as a young boy and the first album I rememeber going into a record shop (with my mum) and buying was their Greatest Hits album on vinyl.

I think they wrote and produced some of the greatest pop songs of all time. The Swedish folk edge combined with Benny's synth.

Who's a fan then. What's you favourite ABBA songs?

I guess I stand alone on the whole ABBA thing then. I was introduced to them as a boy and I've always liked them. I used to get their new albums for Xmas. I know it's considered uncool and cheesy and a bit gay to be in to ABBA, but I thought these days they were at least recognised and credited by most for their outstanding song writing. They have written and produced some of the best pop songs of all time. Even if you don't like them, personally you have to at least rate them objectively in that sense.

I'm not into Mama Mia (that film) or that. It was on TV over Xmas when I was back visiting my mum and it's the first time I've seen it and it was fucking awful!

Also Elvis. Got no time for "the king". Fuck off Elvis. Fuck of Elvis conventions and everyone who has ever done an Elvis impression.
