Voulez-Vous reissue including remastering out June 14th!

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, ABBA’s Voulez-Vous will be reissued as a multi-format release on June 14th!

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 group´s 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 songwriting, 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. Their audience certainly responded to the album – upon release in April 1979, it went to number one in more than 10 countries and generated a total of four hit singles.

To celebrate the album’s original 23 April 1979 release, Polar Music 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 7 singles released in the era of the Voulez-Vous album: ‘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’. Released around the album.

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

All products will be released June 14th 2019.
