ABBA, the 1970s Swedish supergroup from Sweden, who formed in 1972, split in 1983, then got back together again last week, only to break up again citing "musical differences", have decided to give it one last shot, and are to record a new and updated version of their 1977 blockbuster hit album track 'Thank You For The Muesli'.
The song, which originally featured as a track on 'ABBA: The Album' in 1977, was released as a single in its own right on 6 November 1983. It was an instant success, quite possibly due to the unexpected emergence of muesli as a popular breakfast cereal by the early 1980s.
The new version, which the group will cynically release just in time for Christmäs, will be recorded in Benny Andersson's kitchen, which has a breakfast bar in stunning Norwegian pine, to give it that authentic Scandinavian breakfast-time feel.
The B-side is to be the 1974 hit, 'Honey, Honey', a nod to another great breakfast cereal of the time, Sugar Puffs.
