Benny Andersson reveals pop side-project collaboration

ABBA stars Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus are set to premiere their first newly written pop song in 15 years.

The song, called ‘Story Of A Heart’, will be released on July 6. It is available as part of a 14-track album by Andersson‘s 16-strong group The Benny Andersson Band.

Vocals on the track have been translated into English, and are sung by Swedish star Helen Sjöholm. As well as the Andersson/Ulvaeus song, ‘Story Of A Heart’ takes in Swedish folk music, polka, waltzes and Celtic folk.

The Benny Andersson Band have also announced their first UK performance, to take place at London‘s Hampstead Heath on July 4 as part of the Sweden On Stage festival. No tickets are required for the event.
