Abba Voulez Vous - Music Shore

Celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, ABBA’s Voulez-Vous will receive a multi-format reissue on 14th June.

The album that saw the band say goodbye to the decade they dominated with style, Voulez-Vous was their fifth consecutive No.1 in Sweden, a chart-topper around Europe and a US Top 20 album. Powered by classic singles, including the title track, and ‘Chiquitita’, Voulez-Vous was at the heart of one of the groups most successful years to date.

Marking one of the longest gaps between new albums, Voulez-Vous was recorded across an entire year, with Benny and Björn refining their precision song writing, and Agnetha and Anni-Frid providing some of their finest vocals across a diverse set of songs that ranged from contemporary disco classics to ballads that explored Sweden’s rich musical past.

To celebrate the album’s original 23 April 1979 release, Polar Music (via Universal Music Group) will be releasing a number of anniversary reissues:

· A 2LP half-speed master on 180g vinyl, mastered at Abbey Road and cut at 45rpm.

· A coloured-vinyl 7” singles box set, collecting the singles ‘Voulez-Vous’, ‘Summer Night City’, ‘I Have A Dream’, ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’, ‘Does Your Mother Know’, ‘Chiquitita’ and the extended dance mix of ‘Voulez-Vous’.

· Each single released as a limited-edition standalone picture disc.

All products will be released 14th June 2019.

Voulez-Vous

People everywhere
A sense of expectation hanging in the air
Giving out a spark
Across the room your eyes are glowing in the dark
And here we go again, we know the start, we know the end
Masters of the scene
We’ve done it all before and now we’re back to get some more
You know what I mean

Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
Take it now or leave it (ah-ha)
Now it’s all we get (ah-ha)
Nothing promised, no regrets
Voulez-vous (ah-ha)
Ain’t no big decision (ah-ha)
You know what to do (ah-ha)
La question c’est voulez-vous
Voulez-vous

I know what you think
The girl means business so I’ll offer her a drink
Looking mighty proud
I see you leave your table, pushing through the crowd
I’m really glad you came, you know the rules, you know the game
Master of the scene
We’ve done it all before and now we’re back to get some more
You know what I mean
