On Bullet For My Valentine’s self-titled new album, they wanted to do three things. “We wanted to shock, amaze and show,” frontman Matt Tuck said. NME. “We wanted to show people what this band is really capable of.”

This is something the band more than achieved on their seventh album. Released earlier this month, “Bullet For My Valentine” is the heaviest and fiercest thing the band has ever put their name on, and the start of a new chapter for the Metal Titans.

It’s a radical departure from the group’s 2018 release, “Gravity,” which saw Bullet For My Valentine perform with pop choruses, electronic flourishes and cleaner vocals. It was a record that, as you might expect, divided their fans. “I just didn’t have the energy and appetite to write technical metal music at this point in my life,” singer Matt Tuck told NME via Zoom. “We tried, but the more we forced it, the more I got fed up and the more I rejected it. We could have written another metal record, but doing something like this for the wrong reasons is just bullshit, isn’t it?

He explains that ‘Bullet For My Valentine’ is not a knee-jerk reaction to the reception. “This is where I was as a songwriter,” says Tuck. “They [the two albums] couldn’t be more different, but “Bullet For My Valentine” wouldn’t be what it is without “Gravity”.

In the latest edition of NME’s In Conversation series, Tuck discusses the late-career rebirth of Bullet For My Valentine, wanting to headline the Download Festival, sanity in metal, and why there will always be a place for more traditional heavy acts. Here is what we learned.

“Bullet For My Valentine” sounds like the start of a new era

It is rare that a group releases an eponymous album after 23 years of career; but for Bullet For My Valentine, this record was just like the start of something new. “Creatively the band is just on another level right now,” Tuck says. “During the touring cycle of ‘Gravity’, we felt that we were becoming a pretty great live band, which we are extremely proud of,” he explains, and that confidence continued in the creation of their seventh album.

“The writing process for the new record has been relentless. Having that creative flow is something you crave when writing a song, let alone writing an album and we couldn’t stop. The songwriting quality is phenomenal on this record, they are brave, they are fierce, they are confident. Everything just fell into place. It’s like the start of something very special.

The group couldn’t help but become political

With Bullet For My Valentine writing their self-titled album at the height of the pandemic, it was difficult for politics not to slip into the lyrics. “’Bastards’ was obviously influenced by the times we lived in,” begins Tuck. The furious thrash song is more political than anything he’s written before, “but I didn’t want it to be a song that sounded that way because I’ve never been that kind of lyricist. We’ve never been that kind of group, ”he says.

“The concept was born from what was happening in this country and from seeing how badly things were managed on a daily basis. It’s a dig but I tried to make it as lyrical and creative as possible, rather than just like a sharp “fuck yourself” finger.

There is more music on the way

The band were so well positioned to write “Bullet For My Valentine” that they continued to create after the album was finished. “We have six more songs plus the B sides that we want to do something with next year,” Tuck reveals. The new unreleased songs were part of the same writing and recording process as the album “but they’re different and unique,” he adds.

The band wanted the record to be “a really solid and cohesive body of work throughout,” so to keep the record focused, they kept the weirder tracks; but hope to release them as singles or EP in the future. “I want them to see the light of day because they’re heavy, interesting, and push the boundaries,” Tuck says.

Bullet For My Valentine wants to make the front page of the Download Festival

Earlier this year, Bullet For My Valentine played the closing set at the Download Pilot – a low-capacity test event held as part of the Government’s Events Research Program to collect data to help reopen events. in large scale. According to Tuck, being invited to participate in the pilot was “an honor.”

“We’ve been a part of this festival since 2004 and it’s something that has always been in my heart and soul as a metal musician. It is the holy land of what we do. Yes, it wasn’t the full sing-and-dance full-capacity version, but it still meant the world.

Now, however, Tuck wants Bullet For My Valentine to go back and download title correctly. “We get a taste of it and we know we can do it. I think just being patient is the key to this because there’s no way some bands are going anywhere anytime soon. There’s no way we’re above them either, ”says Tuck, referring to Download Festival staples like Metallica or Slipknot. “For us, it’s just about delivering the best version of the band on every tour we do, and staying hungry and motivated to beat the band that’s at the top of these posters.”

Bullet For My Valentine cares more about listeners than streaming numbers

Bullet For My Valentine recently surpassed 1 billion Spotify streams in America, which is an absolutely huge achievement for a metal band from Bridgend. For Tuck, that means the band has a future as well as a legacy.

“It’s good to know that the group is still relevant and important to a lot of people. This is what is exciting for me. This is what I really strive for. I think it’s important that there is always an appetite for the band, regardless of historical successes.

“We are focused on the future and I think there is better to come,” says Tuck. “I don’t think we’re near our peak as a live band and as songwriters. As long as we feel that, we’ll be there for a long, long time. “

The Classic Midnight Album – Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers https://sabbat-uk.com/the-classic-midnight-album-tom-petty-and-the-heartbreakers-tom-petty-and-the-heartbreakers/ Sun, 28 Nov 2021 11:00:39 +0000 https://sabbat-uk.com/the-classic-midnight-album-tom-petty-and-the-heartbreakers-tom-petty-and-the-heartbreakers/ Tonight (November 28) on the famous midnight classic album on Radio Nova, we’re playing the self-titled debut album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

Tonight (November 28) on the famous midnight classic album on Radio Nova, we’re playing the self-titled debut album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

The album is presented in its entirety on vinyl without commercials or interruptions, courtesy of The Record Hub.

Formed in Gainesville, Florida in 1976, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers was originally composed of singer and guitarist Tom Petty, guitarist Mike Campbell, bassist Ron Blair, drummer Stan Lynch and keyboardist Benmont Tench.

Petty had signed to Shelter Records with his former band Mudcrutch. Breaking up this group even before recording an album, Petty kept her guitarist Campbell and enlisted the remaining trio to form a brand new group, also recruited by Shelter, who had great faith in Petty.

The Heartbreakers emerged with a unique sound, falling somewhere between the then established Southern Rock style and the emerging Heartland Rock movement. The brevity of the songs, many of them under three minutes, reflects the growing influence of punk at the time, as does Petty’s sullen vocal style on several tracks.

There is an eccentricity in the first album,Petty said in a biography. “It is unlike anything else from the time.

Shortly after their formation, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers recorded their self-titled debut album. Petty claimed her goal for the recording was to capture the sound of “the kind of rock that came out of AM radio when every song was a new Creedence Clearwater Revival or a new Rolling Stones, and all you wanted was to turn it up.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers offers 10 tracks, arriving at a steady pace of 30 minutes. On the A side, Rockin ‘Around (with you); Breakdown; Hometown Blues; The savage, forever; and all that is rock ‘n roll. On the B side are strangers in the night; Dupe again (I don’t like him); Mysterious man; Luna; and American girl.

The album was released on November 9, 1976. With little support from radio stations and a poorly judged tour opening for KISS, the record struggled to find an audience in the United States.

Like so many artists, Petty and the Heartbreakers had to travel to foreign shores to gain acceptance. It was while touring the UK with Nils Lofgren that the band began to create a scene, with Anything That’s Rock ‘n Roll ranking number 36 in the UK when released as a single. The UK quickly embraced The Heartbreakers, which appeared on Top of the Pops and on the covers of NME, Melody Maker and Sounds.

It would take a year for the United States to catch up with Petty. In the summer of 1977, American Girl broke the UK Top 40, and although she was not on the charts in the United States, rock radio stations began to broadcast the song. Over the years it has become a staple of rock radio and is widely regarded as Petty’s flagship song. In 1978, Breakdown became an American Top 40 hit thanks to its appearance on the soundtrack of the cult film FM.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is now generally seen as a teaser of things to come for Petty and her band as they establish their distinctive sound. Ending with one of the greatest rock anthems ever recorded, it deserves classic album status, which is why we’re playing it in full at midnight tonight on Radio Nova.

Julie Doiron: Review of the album “I thought about you” https://sabbat-uk.com/julie-doiron-review-of-the-album-i-thought-about-you/ Fri, 26 Nov 2021 13:36:00 +0000 https://sabbat-uk.com/julie-doiron-review-of-the-album-i-thought-about-you/ Julie Doiron writes the album openings as if they were cold emails from a friend you haven’t heard from in a long time – seemingly out of the blue, but unmistakable in their comfort and charm.

Julie Doiron writes the album openings as if they were cold emails from a friend you haven’t heard from in a long time – seemingly out of the blue, but unmistakable in their comfort and charm. On his last official solo release, So many days, she provided a modest mission statement on “Cars and Trucks,” the album’s intro track, on how inspiration comes to her. “So I’m writing this song to prove to myself that maybe I can write songs,” she sang, “I pushed it away for all kinds of reasons that I was afraid to try. ” On reading, it makes perfect sense that it’s been nine years since Doiron released an official solo album. It’s a weird understanding not to force the muse she nurtures on her brand new album, I thought about you.

Although almost a decade has passed since the release of So many days, the Canadian musician was not really silent during this period. In 2017, she released an album under the moniker Julie & The Wrong Guys with members of Toronto hardcore band Cancer Bats, who found her exploring slightly more muscular territory than her varied solo work or collaborations with heroes. beloved lo-fi Eric’s Trip. On top of that, she continued her Canta in Spanish series, which consists of reimaginations in Spanish of his earlier work. In 2019, she also teamed up with Phil Elverum of The Microphones and Mount Eerie to release the critically acclaimed film. pt. 2 of their Lost wisdom project.

With so many projects occupying him over the years between solo albums, you’d think a recording with Doiron wouldn’t be necessary. But in the first two lines of I thought about youThe opening track of “You Gave Me The Key” is like giving you an update on life in a little corner of a crowded bar. “There was never a plan, no need to explain,” she sings in her forever recognizable quiver, “But here I am, I’m doing it again.”

When the track kicks off with all the strength of its backing band, with ultra-prolific rock scholar and You’ve Changed Records conductor Daniel Romano on guitar, his brother Ian on drums and songwriter Dany Placard on bass, the sense of playfulness from Doiron’s Best Work is on full display. Much like their recordings with their phenomenal band The Outfit, the Romano brothers add live-wire energy to songs like this and the title track chooglin ‘. The latter finds that Doiron is explaining to listeners why she may not have been in such a confessional mood so far. “It’s been so long, I haven’t had much to say,” she sings over Romano’s dry tremolo guitar, “But honestly I was ashamed / And honestly I was scared to say I was thinking of you. ” Just like in the physical sense, grieving the death of a romance takes time to process. For Doiron, perhaps she needed to divert her creativity for a moment in order to rediscover the unfailing perspective that she reaches everywhere. I thought about you.

Recorded in a secluded cabin in the woods, the album’s spiky chemistry between Doiron and his band strikes the best balance between naked folk and his love of frenzied guitars since perhaps his 2002 album with Wooden Stars. Similar to this collaboration, hearing Doiron find ways to overcome the heaviness of this group is the best possible showcase for his expressive and singular voice. She combines the hushed freshness of Kim Deal with the vulnerable acrobatics of Leslie Feist, a kind of priceless natural ability. When she lengthens the line, “I was still learning, my heart was not yet open,” on the crippling ballad “The Letters We Sent”, Doiron proves that the balance of the high-flying act is just as much a matter of the weight of his words as these are those moments of beauty. The song also features Romano’s most injured Crazy Horse-style guitar playing on the record, further infuriating the heartache left in the emotion of the album.

The only moments on the album that don’t work are those that don’t quite match the strengths of Doiron or his backing band. Songs like the heavy psychedelia of “Just When I Thought” or the stomping of a note of “Ran” surpass their reception simply by not turning as far to the left as they should have. Rather than adding a touch of variety to the album’s track list, they end up looking like unfinished ideas amid a handful of inspired tracks.

On the closing track of the album “Back to the Water”, an unaccompanied Doiron assesses her current place in the world, an act in a good manner before saying goodbye. “I don’t need to know the answers / I don’t need to be found / I have been given so many chances / There is pain all around,” she sings with the assurance of someone who has just spent their two weeks at their soul death nine to five wandering the world in search of enlightenment. “I know there is a lesson here to be learned,” she adds, closing the album, “I’ve been here before.”

Alongside One Direction, Tomlinson released five studio albums. With the exception of their debut album, Up All Night, all of the band’s records reached number one on the charts. After the quintet officially split in 2016, each of the members began releasing their own solo albums. Tomlinson released his debut album in 2020; the last member of the group to do so.

When Tomlinson released his debut album, Walls, he encountered mixed reviews and comparisons with Oasis.

However, the disc was commercially successful. When it was released, it sold over 35,000 copies.

Walls also debuted at the top of the album charts in Argentina, Portugal, Mexico and Scotland, while reaching the top ten in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Poland and Spain.

Now Tomlinson has given a glimpse of when the next album might arrive.

Tomlinson wrote to his 35.9 million Twitter followers, “I’m working hard on the next album!

“I like to take the time. I hope everyone is well!”

Fans of the local Doncaster were delighted with her update, with many sending her best wishes.

One of them, louisartbot, wrote: “so excited to hear !!! send our best energies your way. “

Tomlinson recently added fuel to the fire when he began to recall his time in the band, which originally formed on the ITV X Factor show.

The 29-year-old posted a few memorabilia on the 11th anniversary of his audition for the talent show.

He wrote: “11 years since my first audition! I had no idea that day how much that would have changed between then and now.”

Tomlinson then added: “Thank you to everyone who has been there for me along the way! We are just getting started!”

Earlier this year, the odds of 1D getting back together were a quarter, but that could still change.

Harry Styles’ arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during Eternals ruined the chances of that happening.

Ladbrokes recently gave the group a 6/4 chance to reunite within the next 12 months.

It’s been a tumultuous couple of years for Volumes. At the beginning of 2020 they parted ways with singer Gus Farias and his brother and guitarist Diego, who tragically died soon after. The biggest change to the band’s sound, however, is the return of original singer Michael Barr. Californians have always built around this dual vocal interaction and the combination of Michael and Myke Terry – the man who ultimately replaced him – is sometimes beautiful to see.

They start the album with a vicious one-two. Opener FBX bristles with industrial anger before Malevolent crashes with a roar. This doesn’t just refer to the heavy djent judder from the band’s first two albums, it’s one of the heaviest tracks they’ve ever made. Eerie guitar sounds surround the crisp grooves as the prominent bass leans and weaves its way through it all. All signs point to Volumes taking a much more aggressive approach with their fourth album, until Bend makes a sharp change of gears.

It won’t come as a surprise to existing fans, but it’s an opinion divider, with great Spiritbox-style melodies, an R&Influence B and not a single foreground scream to hear. They do well, however, and from that point on, the album veers between extremes. Man On Fire is another metallic rager, riding anti-racist sentiments through a very heavy blackout, while Weighted has a 90s alt.rock feels on its own, and Into You (Hurt) has an almost Deftones churn.

Overall, it’s an album that nods to the band’s past while also bringing in some new ideas. And will that make the fans happier? Almost certainly …

Verdict: 3/5

For fans of: Veil Of Maya, Issues, Northlane

Happier? is now available through Fearless.

Florida funeral doom band Worm released their latest album, “Foreverglade,” October 22-20, Buck Spin. This rapidly making waves in underground metal has proven to be one of the best metal records of the year, “Foreverglade”, and can go hand in hand with any musical release this year.

If “Foreverglade” reaps the benefits of one word, it would be devastating. The album opens with a slow and menacing hellish landscape that shivers the spine and the drums shake the listener’s bones. The meticulously paced songwriting is layered on the haunting voice of singer Fantomslaughter. Only halfway through the intro does the song switch to muffled, murky guitars that set the stage for some of the best headbanging on the whole album.

Artist Brad Moore’s artwork paints a grimy face in “Foreverglade,” a face that epitomizes Florida’s nature through extreme metal.

“Murk Above the Dark Moor” is where the album alludes to the diversity of the compositions presented. The use of bells alongside sinister guitar riffs plays into the larger aspects of the funeral doom and deadly doom subgenre: the feeling of being delivered to the gates of death.

“Empire of the Necromancers” sounds like the perfect ode to early death metal bands from Florida, like Death and Morbid Angel. The old-school death metal revitalization is a well-known phenomenon in today’s scene, but it’s tracks like “Empire of the Necromancers” that make this phenomenon exciting and remarkable.

Most of the album portrays a gloomy atmosphere, and then there are tracks like “Subaqueous Funeral” which are shrouded in mystery. Weird synth work, masterful leads and solos and dismal vocals at this point in the tracklist cement “Foreverglade” as a damn special project.

The closing track “Centuries of Ooze” is the menacing acceptance of the 45 minute journey that is “Foreverglade”. The conclusion offers a methodical finale that does not disappoint. “Centuries of Ooze” fades into the same darkness beneath the Florida waters from which the worm originated.

As soon as “Foreverglade” ends, it’s hard not to listen to the whole album again. Worm imagined a masterpiece in the terrifying realms of Florida that will not be forgotten for very long.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s Mr. Shadows spoke to “Tuna On Toast With Stryker” podcast on the progress of recording sessions for the band’s long-awaited sequel to 2016 “The scene” album. He said (as transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET): “The songs are over. I still have vocals to do and we have strings to record. And the thing with the strings is that in LA they just don’t allow people to be within six feet [of each other]. And we have experience – I’m not going to name any bands, but our producer has worked on some records, and he says, “Look, you put somebody six feet apart and you get them. mics all, and it doesn’t sound like a band playing together. ‘ He said, “They hear the notes a little bit. There’s no unified sound. And we’ve got a bunch of out-of-tune violinists and singers. And he said to me, ‘I’m setting there fixing everything.’ And he said to me, “I suggest you either go to Prague and do it, or wait.” And so we’re still waiting, because we don’t want to go to Prague and record these things. I mean, he there are so many little things, and we’re just not ready to compromise on that. “

According to Mr. Shadows, he and his band mates are in no rush to release their new LP and hit the road to promote it.

“We’re really trying to make sure that everyone mentally wants to go on tour and support a record, that it will make sense to support the record – it’s not a stop and go situation,” he explained. .

“We’re going to release it when we want to. That’s just the gist. People seem to think we’re working for them.

“At the end of the day, everyone has to decide, ‘I’m ready to support a record. “… You just have to make sure you’re there mentally for it.

“I might not want to give the impression that we all have these issues in the band – we don’t have any – but people are also very aware of their life and what it is right now and they want to be happy doing things, and I think the fans want us to be happy doing things.

“We’re very happy in this digital realm that we’re going into and the NFTs, and we’ll be happy when the record comes out. And when we do shows, we’ll be happy to do them. But just know that if we’re on stage, so we are in a good position. “

Last February, Mr. Shadows told the Minneapolis, Minnesota radio station 93X that “70%” of the follow-up “The scene” has been done. ”He said,“ We ​​are working on things. We have things we can’t finish right now because of COVID – string players, et cetera. We know Andy [Wallace, AVENGED SEVENFOLD‘s longtime mixer] doesn’t want to travel, or his management doesn’t want him to travel because of COVID. So there is a lot going on. “

As for when fans can expect to see the new one AVENGED SEVENFOLD LP released, Mr. Shadows said: “It doesn’t make sense for us right now to release a record and not be able to shoot it. The world has changed. Release a record on Spotify without touring for a rock band, it just doesn’t make sense to us. So we’re going to wait until it’s all back, then we’ll release the record, finish it, and we’ll be fine. “

Also in February, AVENGED SEVENFOLD guitarist Zacky Vengeance said in detroit WRIF radio station that he and his bandmates wrote “a lot, a lot of writing – at a much slower pace than usual” – during the coronavirus pandemic. “Now that we’re a little older, we move a little slower, but [we’ve done] tons of writing, “he said.” We went into the studio. It was a pretty weird time to do anything in 2020, but that’s when we felt like it was a good time to come out and start following whatever we had inside of us.

“But, like I said, we’re doing it at a slow pace, so we’re still recording,” he explained. “We’re going very, very slowly, making sure everything is the way we like it. We’re in no rush to release anything, mainly because we want to hit the road, and we want to be able to bring it to life. We want to tour, we want to travel, we want to play songs that people want to hear; we want to introduce them to new things. Because I just want to hurry up and release something now and let it fade away. empty, as people worry about where their next meal is coming from or the paycheck, the last thing in the world on people’s minds is, ‘AVENGED SEVENFOLDis going to release a new album, and that will be saving grace for all of us. And I feel like we’re going to take it slow, let the world get back to normal a little bit, and when people are ready, we’ll know – we’ve got a good idea. We’re going to finish it slowly, and then release it when the world is ready. “

Last December, Mr. Shadows Recount Kerrang! magazine on the musical direction of the new VENGÉ material: “The [new] the recording looks like nothing ‘The scene’ – it’s a completely new direction, and it’s nothing like anything we’ve done. That’s all I’m going to say about it: it’s overkill, and it’s very eclectic and wild. “

AVENGED SEVENFOLD has kept a low profile in 2019 and likely won’t hit the road again until early 2022. A blister of blood on Mr. Shadows‘vocal cords forced the band to cancel a 2018 summer tour with RABIES PROPHETS and THREE DAYS GRACE.

When asked if he was completely healed now, Mr. Shadows Recount 93X: “I feel good, man. I’m just working on a new technique to make sure I don’t have any more problems. For a year now I’ve been doing – I change a lot of things, sing from a different place , and just make sure that when I get back on stage, I don’t go back to old bad habits. “

“The scene” was released by surprise in October 2016. The record’s release, announced the night it went on sale, had the lowest sales of a AVENGED SEVENFOLD album in 11 years. It sold 76,000 copies in its first week, 73,000 of which were physical.

“The scene”, VENGÉdebut for Capitol, sold less than half the number of copies in its first week than the group’s previous two efforts, the 2010s “Nightmare” and 2013 “Hail to the king”.

AVENGED SEVENFOLD recently announced the Bat Club, a new level of connection with fans based on non-fungible tokens, or NFT – digital assets (free lifetime tickets, free lifetime meetings, airdrops during each year, drum lessons, guitar lessons, golf lessons, giveaways, avoid queues at shows, poker nights, movie nights, etc.) that cannot be duplicated. After a first drop of 101 free NFTs to whet fans’ appetites, 10,000 will be released at the end of November via avengedsevenfold.io, and anyone who buys one will be part of the community.

Swedish pop sensation ABBA made a comeback on Friday with their new album Voyage, nearly 40 years after their split, delighting fans but leaving critics divided.

Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny and Anni-Frid – forming the acronym ABBA – haven’t released any new music since their split in 1982, a year after their last album The Visitors.

Voyage went live on Thursday at midnight in different time zones, much to the delight of longtime fans around the world.

“We’re just in disbelief … that this is something we might relive in our lifetime,” said Jeffrey de Hart, 62, a longtime ABBA fan, at a listening party. in Stockholm for the long-awaited release of the Swedish group.

At the ABBA museum in Stockholm, enthusiastic fans had also arrived, hoping to relive the magic of the group.

“I grew up with ABBA so for me the music and the band were important, for my growth,” Malin, a 50-year-old fan, told AFP while her mother, who had just turned 80 and had accompanied her to the museum, nodded. in agreement.

The criticisms were however divided on the return.

The American magazine Rolling Stone hailed it as “worth the wait”, while the British Guardian newspaper dismissed it with a “no thanks for the music”, a play on the title of one. of the group’s most famous songs.

‘ABBAtars’

After years of speculation and several dropped hints, the band finally announced the reunion and the new album in September, and released the singles “I Still Trust You” and “Don’t Shut Up”.

The 10 Travel Titles isn’t all the band will be releasing.

They will also unveil digital avatars – dubbed “ABBAtars” – at a concert in London in May, looking like themselves in 1979.

The holograms are the product of a multi-year project, designed in partnership with a special effects company of Star Wars creator George Lucas.

Delayed several times by technical difficulties, then by the COVID-19 pandemic, they will finally be unveiled in May.

The group first imagined the idea of ​​avatars, then the music followed suit.

In 2018, ABBA confirmed rumors that they were back in the studio and that at least two new songs were being recorded.

But great efforts have been made to keep the music a secret.

“First there was only two songs, then we said, ‘Well maybe we should do a few more’, what do you girls say and they said ‘Yeah'”, a Benny Andersson, 74, explained when the album was announced.

“Then I asked them ‘why don’t we do a full album?’” He added.

He and Bjorn Ulvaeus, 76, have been promoting the album in recent weeks, with Agnetha Faltskog, 71, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, 75, choosing to spare themselves from busy promotional programs.

All promotion was halted for 24 hours this week after two people died at a tribute concert in northern Stockholm on Tuesday night.

“The sound of ABBA”

In addition to the two songs released in September, a third track from the album was released in October, a modernized version of “Just A Notion”, originally recorded in 1978 but never released before.

Newly released songs cannot escape comparison with hits like “Waterloo”, “Dancing Queen”, “Mamma Mia”, “The Winner Takes It All” and “Money, Money, Money”, but the band members do. not afraid to disappoint. Fans.

“We don’t have to prove anything, what if people think we were better before?” Andersson told Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter.

For record stores, the release was a welcome boon.

“I have been working at the store for 10 years and have never seen anything like it. So I am really delighted to be a part of it,” Samuel Hagglund, manager of the Bengans record store in Stockholm, told AFP. .

For Swedish fan Peter Palmquist, the new album struck the right note between the old and the new.

“It’s true to the sound of ABBA, but it’s not nostalgia, staying where they are but for the people they’ve become,” he said.

According to Jean-Marie Potiez, one of the group’s best-known international experts, age has given some singers a new edge.

“Agnetha and Anni-Frid’s voices lost their highs, which is normal considering their age, but they gained depth and sensitivity.”

“When they sing together, the two of them, like on ‘Don’t Shut Me Down’, that’s ABBA’s sound.”

Despite two divorces – Bjorn and Agnetha and Benny and Anni-Frid had both been married for several years – the four have remained good friends.

But Voyage, the group’s ninth studio album, will indeed be their last, confirmed the group’s two B’s in an interview with The Guardian at the end of October.
