With more than 32 million sales worldwide, the collection is among the best-selling albums in the annals of recorded music.
It has spent more than 1,055 weeks on the Official UK Albums Chart, making it the longest-running album in the Official Albums Chart Top 100 ever. It is the second-highest selling album of all time in the UK.
Some of the Swedish pop legends' biggest hits are included on the 1992 album "ABBA Gold," which was released on September 21. These songs include "Dancing Queen," "Knowing Me, Knowing You," "Take A Chance On Me," "Mamma Mia," and "The Winner Takes It All."
On September 23, a version in new formats will be released to commemorate the publication's 30th anniversary [available for pre-order here].
The available formats are as follows: new gold cassette, also available in black; gold 2LP, gold 2 x 180g vinyl; and new 2LP Picture Disc in heavyweight vinyl, housed in a die-cut gatefold sleeve. Additionally, brand-new, limited-edition ABBA merchandise will soon be up for pre-order.
It follows the recent news that ABBA’s Benny Anderson and Elton John worked together on a new song mash-up for TikTok.
The pair remotely performed a live rendition of each of their songs before they were blended together in the TikTok audio app. While John played his 1973 smash "Bennie And The Jets", Anderson played ABBA’s 1979 hit "Chiquitita."
Meanwhile, NME spoke to ABBA earlier this year about their 'Voyage’ concert residency, which gives fans the opportunity to watch Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Andersson perform via avatars that are locked to their looks from the 1970s.
