ABBA Release New Song ‘Just a Notion’

    ABBA have released a new song called ‘Just a Notion’, the latest preview of their upcoming record Voyage. Give it a listen below.

    Björn Ulvaeus said of ‘Just a Notion is a press release:

    Wikipedia says this track was recorded in September 1978, which sounds about right. That puts it in between ABBA the Album and Voulez-Vous, and it would have been included in the latter had we not decided against it. Why did we decide against it? In hindsight, I don’t have a clue. It’s a good song with great vocals. I know that we played it to a publisher in France and a couple of other people we trusted and as far as I can remember they liked it very much. So it’s a mystery and will remain a mystery.

    Now Benny has recorded a new backing track to which we’ve added drums and guitars, but all vocals are from the original 1978 tracks. In a way, it demonstrates what we plan to do with ABBA Voyage in 2022. There, we will have a live band playing, but all vocals will be from the old recordings.

    ‘Just a Notion’ is a ridiculously happy song and hopefully it will cheer you up in these dark times!

    Voyage, ABBA’s first studio LP in 40 years, is set to arrive on November 5 via Capitol. They’ve already previewed it with the singles ‘I Still Have Faith in You’ and ‘Don’t Shut Me Down’.
