The "blonde one" from Euro-pop behemoths Abba hasn't released any English language recordings in over eight years. Her welcome return with "If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind" is taken from her forthcoming??"My Colouring Book" album heralding a true renaissance for the "voice of Abba". Originally recorded in 1969 by Cilla Black, Faltskog's version is a marvellous amalgamation of epic balladry and sixties production, sounding like a great lost Carpenters' track.

Four years ago Agnetha Faltskog??started to research the music of the sixties. She delved into books, checked charts and began collecting large quantities of rare records. The eventual results of this meticulous undertaking became the central focus on "My Colouring Book".
The album was recorded in Stockholm's legendary Atlantis Studios (where Abba first recorded thirty years ago) and features thirteen tracks of mesmerising pop brilliance. "When You Walk In The Room" (written by Jackie de Shannon) and "Sometimes When I'm Dreaming" (written by Mike Batt) are obvious highlights, but they are joined by a host of other classic gems.
