ABBA's Agnetha Faltskog prepares comeback

STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Agnetha Faltskog, one of the former members of Swedish pop band ABBA, is preparing for a comeback and has returned to the recording studio after more than eight years of musical silence.

The singer's spokesman, Staffan Linde, told The Associated Press on Thursday that Faltskog, 62, is working alongside Swedish songwriter Jorgen Elofsson, who has previously penned and produced tunes for Britney Spears, Celine Dion and the boy band Westlife. He could not say when the new album will be released.

After ABBA split in the early 1980s, Faltskog pursued a solo career for a few years, but then went into a music hiatus for most of the 1990s. Her last album, "My Colouring Book," contained cover songs and was released in 2004.

Always a fan of ABBA, and especially the life's blood of that magnificent group - Agnetha Faltskog, I anxiously await her first release in nearly a decade. I offer my sincerest best wishes to this lovely lady with the voice of an angel.

I guess she must be unhappy with her private life and hopes a musical comeback will fill her needs. I mean, she has money, a husband (I think), and lots of friends and family. Why else would she want to work her **** off and try to make it, again, in such a tough business? What's really going on?

She is one talanted musician.  I have heard some of her singles post ABBA.  I hope she does well.
