New 'Abba' Song Returns To Eurovision Style

It's Eurovision season and it looks like ABBA have returned with a song made for the song contest. OK, slightly misleading as only half of ABBA have returned and the song isn't actually in the Eurovision Song Contest!

The bearded half of ABBA (yes the men!) - Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus are returning to their pop roots with their first pop songs in fifteen years and I've got to admit they are pretty damn good ( I'm a sucker for Euro pop and all things tacky). The video below entitled "Second Best To None" was written by the ABBA duo and features employees from the Hotel Rival in Stockholm.

The ABBA men have enjoyed a good working relationship since the demise of ABBA and enjoyed acclaimed success with Chess the musical in the 80's and other projects. The Benny Andersson Band will be releasing their English translation material in the UK on July 6th.

Maybe we could get ABBA to work on our Eurovision entry song for next year.............

*Eurovision Semi-Finals take place next week
