London, May 8 (IANS) Two of former Swedish pop music group Abba’ singers are set to premiere the first pop song they’ve co-written in 15 years.
The pair - Benny Anderson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, who split from the four-member group in 1982 - have written “Story Of a Heart” for Swedish star Helen Sjoholm’s new album, reports contactmusic.com.
Anderson is also making sure their collaboration - the first since the pair wrote tracks for singer Josefin Nilsson in the early 1990s - will be heard around the world. He has translated the lyrics and the song will also appear on his current group, The Benny Anderson Band’s new English-language album.
Anderson’s 16-member band has recorded 13 additional tracks for the forthcoming album, set to hit shelves July 6.
