The following is the official press release I wrote on behalf of Polar Music International and Universal Music:

A brand new version of ABBA Gold on the way

ABBA's greatest hits album ABBA Gold, which to date has sold more than 28 million copies worldwide, will be re-released in a brand new CD+DVD package on December 6, 2010. Entitled ABBA Gold CD/DVD Special Edition, it features the latest remastered version of the album, while the DVD features newly remastered versions of all the video clips featured on the original DVD.

The DVD will also include bonus selections in the shape of "before-and-after" split-screen comparisons of five original film clips and the remastered versions of those clips. The new ABBA Gold DVD also features a recently discovered archive find: a cartoon version of 'Money, Money, Money', made circa 1977. This very rare clip of 'Money, Money, Money' was made by the Australian production company Reg Grundy's , but was only ever screened briefly during ABBA's heyday and has never been seen in complete form since.

The remastering of the ABBA Gold video clips has been made by Cutting Room in Stockholm, Sweden, taking full advantage of the progress in digital technology since the clips were last remastered in 2002. You have never seen them like this before!

ABBA Gold CD/DVD Special Edition also features a brand new essay on the album by Elisabeth Vincentelli, author of the books ABBA Gold and ABBA Treasures.

ABBA Gold CD/DVD Special Edition will be released in a so-called flip-tray with a slip case. The worldwide release date is December 6, 2010, although dates may vary from territory to territory.
