It’s been 50 years since ABBA released their debut album, Ring Ring, and they are ready to celebrate.
On May 19, the Swedish group will reissue Ring Ring on two-LP vinyl, remastered at Abbey Road Studios. In addition there will be a box set of five colored 7-inch singles, with each single also available individually as a 7-inch picture disc.
The five singles are:
“He Is Your Brother” / “Santa Rosa”
“People Need Love” / “Merry-Go-Round”
“Ring Ring” (English) / “She’s My Kind of Girl”
“Ring Ring” (Swedish) / “Åh, vilka tider”
“Love Isn’t Easy (But It Sure Is Hard Enough)” / “I Am Just A Girl”
Originally released in Sweden on March 23, 1973, the album was actually credited to Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Frida, as they hadn’t yet adopted the name ABBA. It wasn’t released in the U.S. until 1995.
All formats are available for preorder now.
