To coincide with the opening of ABBA Voyage, the once-in-lifetime concert experience at the ABBA Arena, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London opening on 27th May 2022, POLAR/Universal Music are delighted to announce a series of releases to celebrate this momentous occasion.

27th May 2022
10-LP and10-CD box sets that collect ALL of ABBA’s nine studio albums, plus the specially-curated disc of tracks that appeared only as singles.

When Voyage, the first new ABBA album in 40 years, and the accompanying shows in London were announced in September 2021, the global headlines it garnered underlined the phenomenal popularity of ABBA, four decades after they pressed the pause button on their career.

We’d all thought that the perfect arc of eight album releases from the sunshine of 1973’s Ring Ring to the chill of 1981’s The Visitors represented the complete ABBA story. However, one of pop’s most electrifying groups still had surprises in store and their brand new album, Voyage, showed all the ABBA hallmarks were still very much intact. Voyage topped the charts in 18 countries world-wide and became the group’s highest ever placing in the US at No 2.

This brand-new10-LP Box Set, pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl, and10-CD Box Set, offers the opportunity to enjoy Voyage alongside the ‘golden eight’ (Ring Ring, Waterloo, ABBA, Arrival, The Album, Voulez-Vous, Super Trouper and The Visitors), as well as ABBA Tracks, which features non-album singles such as Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight), Fernando and other cherished b-sides. With the addition of a 40-page booklet in the 10CD Box Set featuring album information and classic ABBA photographs from throughout their career, The ABBA Album Box Set is the ultimate collection for an ABBA fan, and an incredible souvenir of the group’s astonishing return.

10th June 2022
If that wasn’t enough, we present the release of ABBA’s Studio Album Picture Discs, which reunites all of ABBA’s prized studio albums on a special format (Ring Ring, Waterloo, ABBA, Arrival, The Album, Voulez-Vous, Super Trouper and The Visitors). Strictly limited edition, the collection is available as a discounted 8LP bundle, and 9LP bundle (inc. Voyage) for a limited time only. The albums are all released on 10th June.

RIGHT NOW!
To celebrate all things ABBA, a new series of 20 lyric videos was launched on Friday 18th March 2022 beginning with Chiquitita (http://abba.lnk.to/Chiquitita-Lyric-Video)

The series will include all tracks on ABBA Gold, plus Happy New Year, and will be released over the next 12 months. Look out for the next release, Waterloo, on 6th April, which coincides with the 48th anniversary of ABBA winning the Eurovision Song Contest with the ever-glorious track.
