HOLY ****. How did I miss this news?

Damn I really hope this album is good, because to me The Visitors was the perfect swan song of an album (and probably my favorite ABBA album)

Ja. Funny thing ABBA fans say the same thing about The Beatles. : /

They will do good in the UK as they never really left the British Race.
No idea of other Countries though.
The new songs are received well.

I expect them to also "do good" in Australia, a country that has always been ABBA-mad.

In the mid-1970s, after the initial worldwide success of "Waterloo", it began to look as if the group would be one-hit wonder, but then following extensive promotion of songs like "Mamma Mia" and "SOS" on local music show Countdown, they took off like a rocket here. I believe they still hold the record for the most number of sell-out shows at the Perth Entertainment Centre.

Then in 1994, long after they had disbanded, interest was rekindled when their songs were used in not one but two Australian films of the 1990s: "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert", and "Muriel's Wedding". The former ensured that ABBA remained darlings of the LGBT subculture. For ABBA, Australia was the gift that kept on giving.

At this stage of the game, ABBA could put out an album of nursery rhyme covers and it would still probably top the charts here.

You're in good company. "Dancing Queen" is one of Queen Elizabeth's favorite tunes.
