ABBA ponders one-off reunion

Monday, December 27, 2010

STOCKHOLM - Agnetha Faltskog of the Swedish supergroup ABBA, does not rule out a one-off reunion of the hit-making quartet, she said in an interview.

“A reunion, at a one-time occasion, perhaps for some benefit is something I think we all could consider,” Faltskog said in the latest issue of women’s magazine Magasin M.

“We will hardly reunite for a tour like the Rolling Stones and other old bands do. But I can consider us doing something in the future,” she said.

However, Faltskog, 60, said she had not discussed the idea with other members - Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson or Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

The group dissolved in 1983, four years after she divorced Ulvaeus, and Faltskog has since kept a low profile, avoiding the limelight.

“I have no interest in featuring in newspapers or on TV. Many think it is just a pose … But I have no desire for it,” she added.

Faltskog has released three solo albums since ABBA broke up and said she enjoys life at her mansion outside Stockholm.

Faltskog said she has begun to write songs again, and has a clutch of half-finished songs.

Despite a long and successful career - she began singing in a band at age 15 - Faltskog said she still has unfulfilled ambitions.

“I would like to sing the theme song in a big movie. Imagine Titanic,” she said.
