ABBA's Benny Andersson announces piano album

ABBA co-founder and songwriter Benny Andersson is releasing a new album of solo piano music through Deutsche Grammophon/UMG on September 29.

Piano features 21 tracks from the Swedish composer’s career including ABBA, his musicals and other solo compositions performed on his grand piano.

Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman & CEO, Universal Music Group said: “This new collection of solo piano recordings will reinforce Benny’s legacy as one of the finest contemporary composers of our time."

Frank Briegmann, President & CEO, Universal Music Group Central Europe and Deutsche Grammophon, added: “Benny‘s songs have revolutionised pop music. He is an innovator and one of the greatest and most creative minds of his field. With this album, he presents as clear and unobstructed a view of his musical universe as never seen before in his long career. Apart from that, Benny also reveals himself to be an amazing pianist and these new interpretations offer a whole new perspective on his work.”

The first track released from the album is a new version of ABBA’s Thank You For The Music, which is available to download and via streaming services.
