Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, ABBA’s Voulez-Vous will receive a multi-format reissue on 14th June.
The album that saw the band say goodbye to the decade they dominated with style, Voulez-Vous was their fifth consecutive No.1 in Sweden, a chart-topper around Europe and a US Top 20 album. Powered by classic singles, including the title track, and ‘Chiquitita’, Voulez-Vous was at the heart of one of the groups most successful years to date.
Marking one of the longest gaps between new albums, Voulez-Vous was recorded across an entire year, with Benny and Björn refining their precision song writing, and Agnetha and Anni-Frid providing some of their finest vocals across a diverse set of songs that ranged from contemporary disco classics to ballads that explored Sweden’s rich musical past.
To celebrate the album’s original 23 April 1979 release, Polar Music (via Universal Music Group) will be releasing a number of anniversary reissues:
· A 2LP half-speed master on 180g vinyl, mastered at Abbey Road and cut at 45rpm.
· A coloured-vinyl 7” singles box set, collecting the singles ‘Voulez-Vous’, ‘Summer Night City’, ‘I Have A Dream’, ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’, ‘Does Your Mother Know’, ‘Chiquitita’ and the extended dance mix of ‘Voulez-Vous’.
· Each single released as a limited-edition standalone picture disc.
All products will be released 14th June 2019.
