The creative work took place in the studio, spread over many, many hours. A fantastic amount of joy and togetherness went into creating our sound. I would like to put the record straight on one thing. A lot has been written about how Agnetha and I fought and quarrelled with each other. There is absolutely no truth in that. Of course, we competed… but to good effect.
But we have to live a whole lot of such misinterpretations. It was a little as though Agnetha and I were also married to one another! We supported one another. Say, if one of us had a cold or felt under the weather… Frida: We were extremely considerate towards one another. How long is it since you last met privately? An awfully long time ago. Though it feels like yesterday.
Yes, sometimes I dream about Frida. We have experienced so much and had such unbelievable lives, both professionally and privately. We are going to be dealing with this throughout our lives. We were reminded of that tonight.
We think of it with pride. 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 Agnetha has withdrawn from the limelight for many years.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!
ABBA The Articles: Story, October Agnetha is always welcome to have a good cry with Anni-Frid
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.
Did the people in ABBA get along?
Soon and additional link to everything you would wish to know about Raskenstam will be added as this page expands. Today I will upload an article that was given to me by a very good friend to share with Agnetha's fans. It is very timely since it pertains to Swedish Children's authoress, " Astrid Lindgren ", who passed away at her home in Stockholm on 28 Januaryat the age of This is an interview that I have never seen before where Agnetha and Astrid are introduced and interviewed.
It is from It can be viewed by clicking on the link from the main page. Also I have received several inquiries about Agnetha's new CD and if there is any news about the key person involved with this project who became ill.
Did the people in ABBA get along?
I can not relay any information as to this persons identity, but they are making a gradual recovery. I do not know when this work will go to production, but I am very pleased Agnetha has returned to her music! He died at home of a stroke. He was a well know actor in Scandanavia. He was considered the Swedish James Dean. In he wrote, directed and starred in the movie "Raskenstam" with Agnetha. Agnetha played "Lisa Mattsson" one of his many love interests in the film, but the one he really wanted to be with.
Now no one knows when the recording will resume. She has recorded 18 demo versions of various songs and the work with selecting songs for the album and work on the arrangements was to take place this fall. Then one of the key persons of the production team fell ill.
Things were running smoothly for Agnetha and she was ready to work when this happened. We don't know yet, so it's a bit up in the air right now. He can't be any more specific than that. The work with the arrangements, to find musicians and to book a recording studio was about to begin when this happened. And I can't say if Agnetha will sing in English or Swedish either. We just think that it's fun that Agnetha took the initiative, because of that it feels even more hopeless when this happened.
Her worst critic Then just a low plan in the wind and that the ABBA-star had begun listening to new material. He goes on to say that this project is something that Agnetha really cares about. The joy has entirely decided the tempo in the work.
Recording will likely start in the beginning of next year. Unfashionable at their peak, Abba have spent the time since they stopped recording slowly moving away from being the kind of pleasure people class as "guilty".
Still, it seems unlikely that they will ever be held in the same regard as their heroes, the Beatles or the Beach Boys — not that this appears to bother them. He really writes openly about drugs — all kind of drugs — and I suppose that was the environment there and then.
But we didn't live in it. For me, there's no comparison. Poker Face … oh! And Rolling in the Deep … oh!
Agnetha and Frida: We didn’t fight
Wolfgang 'Bubi' Heilemann Does it make him jealous to hear a great song? Or at least competitive? But, given that they are a studio band first and foremost, I have often wondered why they don't record together. The prospect of an older, wiser Abba album is a tantalising one. Could this be their last chance before — to paraphrase one of their own songs — time slips through their fingers? Abba The International Party celebrates 40 years since they won Eurovision and is focused on the crazy outfits and that enduring appeal that means Dancing Queen will always be the first song on any sensible wedding DJ's playlist.
