After 40 years, “Just A Notion” marks another huge step in seeing ABBA’s long awaited album Voyage, with the track being the third single that has been given an early release to the public. ABBA is a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. The newly released single has made long time ABBA fans ecstatic all around the world, as it is a rejuvenation of the original 1978 version. With added guitars and drums, “Just A Notion 2021” sounds bigger and better than ever before, and only brings more hype for the eventual drop of the full experience of Voyage.

“Wikipedia says this track was recorded in September 1978, which sounds about right. That puts it in between ABBA the Album and Voulez-Vous, and it would have been included in the latter had we not decided against it. Why did we decide against it? In hindsight, I don’t have a clue. It’s a good song with great vocals. I know that we played it to a publisher in France and a couple of other people we trusted and as far as I can remember they liked it very much. So it’s a mystery and will remain a mystery. Now Benny has recorded a new backing track to which we’ve added drums and guitars, but all vocals are from the original 1978 tracks… ‘Just a Notion’ is a ridiculously happy song and hopefully it will cheer you up in these dark times!”
