ABBA’s Heroic Return: ‘Voyage’ becomes fastest-selling vinyl of the century

Seeing off Ed Sheeran and Radiohead in one swoop, the Swedish megastars land a Number One album spot – and earned the fastest-selling vinyl of the century in the process.

Above all else, it feels like they never left.

With the album marking the return of the band in over 40 years, it is no wonder that it shifted 204,000 chart sales in the first seven days and broke the record for biggest opening week – a title that was originally held by Sheeran’s Divide in 2017.

Having the time of your life? Absolutely. Sailing through in true ABBA fashion, it certainly wouldn’t be a true return if they made an impact. From Thank You For The Music in 1994, to Voyage to the year of 2021 – it’s certainly an honourable title fit for the Dancing Queens of music. What a journey.

Playing through the album itself, it is classic ABBA with a fresh and unadulterated style embracing a taste of happy change. Both songs of I Still Have Faith In You and Don’t Shut Me Down are colossal works that will go down in ABBA history.

Yeah, they’re a conundrum that even the most studios are baffled over. A seemingly easy pop formula with a winning record for over 40 years. I’m not much of a fan either – aware of their most famous of course – but marvel at how popular they’ve become across the world.
