Faltskog represents one 'A' of the iconic Swedish pop group.
Agnetha Faltskog from Swedish pop supergroup ABBA has announced a new album titled A+, along with the single ‘Where Do We Go From Here?’
The song is set to premier on BBC Radio 2 today.
The news of the singer’s solo outing comes two years after the iconic band released their latest album Voyage.
"A couple of years ago I heard one of the songs from my last album ‘A’ on the radio. I have lots of fond memories from making that album, so I couldn’t help but smile," said the singer on Instagram.
"Suddenly it hit me, what would the album sound like if we had made it today...? I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I reached out to the boys who produced ‘A’ back in 2013 - “What would you guys think about reimagining ‘A’ and making a totally new version of it?” They loved the idea! “Let’s try!”

Faltskog represents one ‘A’ of ABBA, along with Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
The group, which also consists of Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Anderson, were on hiatus for almost 40 years following their split in the 80s.
In that time Faltskog released several solo albums.
Earlier this year, the band denied rumours of a potential return to Eurovision in 2024, 50 years from their iconic victory at the song contest with their hit ‘Waterloo’ in 1974.
In May 2022, ABBA opened their hologram tour in London. The show featured a live concert with holographic ‘ABBA-tars’ replacing the real-life performers.
