Agnetha Faltskog - 'When You Really Loved Someone'

Something strange is happening in the world of popular music. First we had Petula Clark announcing her new album, 'Lost in You' in late 2012 and then in January David Bowie released a surprise single and announced his excellent new album on his 66th birthday. Then, on Saturday, I learned of a new EP from Chris Clark and this morning I heard about a new single and album from Agnetha Faltskog of ABBA fame. Who else will release some new songs this year is anybody's guess!

Agnetha always had a lovely voice and great phrasing and her new single, 'When You Really Loved Someone' demonstrates that she's lost of none of her art. It's a lovely, touching song with a lovely video (below). The album of new material will be released in May and is called, simply, 'A'. I'm looking forward to it.

Welcome back Agnetha!
