Our new special edition magazine Classic Pop Presents: ABBA is now on sale!

The 132-page special takes an in-depth look at one of the biggest pop bands in music history, from their early days in Sweden and their breakthrough as winners of the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest through to their years as one of the world’s best-selling acts in the 1970s.

Our expert writers have also put every one of their albums under the microscope to come up with fresh insights into all of their recorded work. Elsewhere, we take a look at their touring years across the globe and how the band’s brand has grown to taking over theatreland and Hollywood with the record-breaking success story of Mamma Mia! The Musical’s stage and movie incarnations.

We also travel to Stockholm to take a glimpse behind the doors of the ABBA museum and serve up our pick of the band’s 40 best tracks.

Paul Lester interviews Erasure’s Andy Bell who talks about how the duo’s chart-topping ABBA-esque EP became a landmark moment in the careers of both bands and we meet some of the best ABBA tribute bands currently on the circuit.

It all adds up to one fantastic feast for any self-respecting ABBA fan!

Available now in Tesco, WH Smiths High Street and Travel stores, HMV, selected independents, and Easons in Ireland. In stores in Europe from next week, the USA in around a month’s time, and Australia and the rest of world shortly after that!
