Have many people heard this yet? It's the new single by Benny Andersson of Abba fame, and written by him and Bjorn as far as I know. It sounds like a long lost Abba track (amazing, obv) but as good as it is (I love it), it lacks the personalities of Agnetha and Frida. What do you think?

I heard it on the radio a few times last week, I quite like it, it's catchy and very Abba ish which is no bad thing.
Now you come to mention it I think it does lack a certain something, still a good track though

The singer's voice is great and I love it as it is, but I keep hearing Agnetha & Frida belt it out in my head. It could be stunning if sung by them.

It has been Ken Bruce's album of the week this week so I've heard a few more tracks from this band.
There seems to be quite a mix of styles and what I've heard of the album is very good. Strong vocals, I don't know who the lady is but she can belt them out alright.

I downloaded it the other day. There's nothing else like Story Of A Heart on the album at all, it's quite folky in places. The singer is called Helen Sjoholm. They were doing something in London this week, I was reading some comments on another site about their show and all were positive. They did a few Abba songs too but not the ones you'd expect, apparently.
