can it get much bigger than what we’ve already got?
More exciting than a whole new album? I think not.
I never got the hype for “Just Like That”. It’s not even that good. And other completed tracks that have been stashed away for years don’t have the same hype.
Don't Start To Shoot Me Down Now (ABBA feat. Dua Lipa)
The music video for the Christmas single?
I think it’s because the whole track got leaked, and three different versions of it at that. I don’t think there are any other unreleased ABBA songs where that was the case? Thing is, they’ve already said they have recorded more songs than will actually be on the new album. If any of the others get leaked, it could be like “Just Like That” all over again!
JLT has a good chorus but it’s massively let down by those weak verses. However, as we have all heard it thanks to Björn being careless with some cassette tapes once, I really don’t think there’s any harm in an official release. Its legendary status isn’t really deserved, but understandable.
The release of a song that won't actually be on the album before the album comes out would be.. a choice
Or a cover of Story Of A Heart!
Edit: Just Like That slandering? On my popjustice? I don’t think!
Benny talking about Just
Exclusive image of ABBA after fans asking for covers and Just Like That even after a new album announcement:
Yeah, I just don’t get it. We’re being given 10 brand new recordings after almost 4 decades and people are still going on about old cast-offs? Embrace the incredible gifts we’re being granted from the pop Gods and forget about all that other stuff!
A new ABBA album... next month! Who would have thought it as we entered 2021.
It still feels like an dream I think.
I have a feeling there may be another new song, not on the album, that will premiere as part of the show next May.
if the album campaign runs through to Dec then it makes sense to have something new on the radio to promote the show.
A non-album track Christmas single would be a fantastic idea!
Could this be their first top 10 studio album in the US? I mean could they make 50k first week in the US...
Wait...what? They've never had a Top 10 studio album in the US???
Prior to Mamma Mia (The Movie) wasn't ABBA mainly known in the US for Dancing Queen and not much else?
Nope, their highest charting album was The Album in 1978 which peaked at #14, and that was with a massive promo campaign in May/June 1978, which also helped "Take a Chance on Me" peak at #3 in the Hot 100.
