The 30th Anniversary Remake of “ABBA Gold” is Coming Next Month

ABBA have announced a new 30th anniversary version of their greatest hits collection “ABBA Gold”.

The collection is one of the most successful releases in recorded music history, with over 32 million sales worldwide.

It is the UK’s second best-selling album of all time, spending over 1,055 weeks on the Official UK Albums Chart, making it the longest-running album in the top 100 of the Official Albums Chart.

Released on September 21, 1992, the Swedish pop legend’s biggest hits include “Dancing Queen”, “Knowing Me, Knowing You”, “Take A Chance On Me”, “Mamma Mia” and “Winner Takes It All”.

To mark the 30th anniversary of its launch, a version in new formats will be published on 23 September [disponible para reservar aquí].

The formats are: New 2LP Picture Disc on heavy vinyl, housed in a die-cut gate sleeve; new gold cassette – also available in black; and 2LP gold – 2 x 180g gold vinyl. New limited edition ABBA merchandise will also be available soon.

The news follows the recent news that ABBA’s Benny Anderson and Elton John have collaborated on a new song mash-up for TikTok – check it out here.

The pair performed live versions of each of their songs remotely before mixing them on the audio app TikTok. Anderson did ABBA’s 1979 hit “Chiquitita,” and John had his 1973 hit “Bennie And The Jets.”

Separately, NME spoke to ABBA earlier this year about their “Voyage” concert residency, which gives fans the chance to see Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Andersson perform through ’70s-looking avatars.

The ABBA Arena in Stratford, east London, is hosting this ambitious production featuring a “digital” version of ABBA (or ‘ABBAtars’) on stage alongside a live 10-piece band (assisted by Klaxons’ James Righton).

NME’s Andrew Trendell spoke to the members of ABBA on the red carpet during the opening night of their “Voyage” residency in May.

“It’s a great feeling,” Lyngstad said when asked what it was like to be at the premiere.

“I want to see the show again. I saw it once on Monday night, and it’s that feeling, you want to watch it again and again because there are so many details that you only understand once only.” “

He added: “I also want to see the reaction of the public again, because they were standing, clapping, singing, dancing, having a great time.”

Ulvaeus told NME that it was “a bit surreal” at first to see the digital versions of the disco era on stage “but you get used to it.”

He said: “After all, we have seen each other in the photographs and videos of the time almost every day for 40 years.”

When asked if the concert was a parting gift from the band, Ulvaeus said: “I think this is it. It’s sad to say, but it can always be withdrawn, right? So the answer is: d It could be, Maybe not “.

Currently, “ABBA Voyage” is scheduled to take place in London until May 28, 2023.

The band released their first album in four decades last November.

In a three-star review, NME’s Nick Levine wrote, “There are some rough patches along the way, but this ‘Voyage’ is a nostalgic journey worth taking.
