The album was recorded in the Polar Music Studios in Stockholm. Sessions began in early October 1984 and lasted until the end of November. Two of the songs recorded, "Turn the World Around" and "You're There", were not included on the initial album, but were released as B-sides. "You're There" and "I Won't Let You Go" were composed by Agnetha herself with lyrics by Eric Stewart.

The tracks "One Way Love" and "I Won't Let You Go" were released as singles throughout Europe. Agnetha also performed "One Way Love" at the Montreux Music Festival in 1985.

During the photo sessions for the sleeve of the album, Agnetha posed at the terrace of Drottningholm Palace, the official residence of the Swedish royal family, in Stockholm.

Long time ABBA fan Elvis Costello submitted a track "Shatter Proof" for inclusion on the album, however Agnetha decided against recording it.

The song on the B-side, "Fly Like the Eagle", was also a duet by Agnetha and Ola Håkansso. Both songs were featured in the documentary It's Time for Sweden.

The single reached No. 1 in Sweden,  The single was released in Australia and got TV and radio air play, but was not successful in the rest of the world.

I Stand Alone

Recorded in Los Angeles  I Stand Alone was produced by Peter Cetera, the former singer and bass guitar player with American rock band Chicago. He duetted with Agnetha on the track "I Wasn't the One (Who Said Goodbye)", (No.93 Billboard Hot 100 and No.19 Adult Contemporary in the U.S.) The co-producer of the album was Bruce Gaitsch, with whom Agnetha was in a relationship with for a short time later on..

The musical style of the album was very different from the European sounds of Faltskog's previous two albums, and reflected the West Coast American influences of the producers. The album became Sweden's best-selling LP of 1988, where it remained at No.1 for eight weeks. It also reached the Top 20 in Norway and Belgium, and No.22 in the Netherlands, but fared less well on charts elsewhere, only reaching No.47 in West Germany, No.72 in the United Kingdom, No.93 in Japan and No.96 in Australia, however the album featured in the Melbourne top 10.

 

She also made several promo videos for singles from the album, including "The Last Time" and "Let It Shine". When the third single, "I Wasn't the One (Who Said Goodbye)", appeared on the U.S. Billboard Chart in April 1988, Warner Music asked her to make another video immediately. Although it was a duet with Peter Cetera, he did not appear in the video.

Album track "Love in a World Gone Mad" was a cover version of a song by  Bucks Fizz, from their 1986 album Writing on the Wall.

and 

"Yo No Fui Quién Dijo Adiós"

("I Wasn't the One (Who Said Goodbye)".

 

 

 

For the cover of the album and promotional interviews, Agnetha appeared with a "new" spiky blonde hair look. She made a very rare trip by plane to Los Angeles to record the album.

 

 

 

After it was completed, she never flew again due to her much-publicised fear of flying. She did, however, admit that the flight was worth it.

 


After the release of I Stand Alone in mid-1988 Agnetha had a well earned break.

In 1990, Agnetha married Swedish surgeon Tomas Sonnenfeld. They divorced in 1993. She also had a two year friendship with Dutchman Gert van der Graaf at the end of the 1990s . After Agnetha had decided to finish the friendship, he stalked her at her mansion, resulting in a court issuing Van der Graaf with a restraining order. He was arrested in 2003 and banned from entry into Sweden. In 2005, the deportation order from Sweden ran out, and within months Van der Graaf was again sighted near her estate in Ekerö.

'My Colouring Book'

In 2004 Agnetha released her first album in 17 years, entitled My Colouring Book.

 

     My Colouring Book.
  1. My Colouring Book
  2. When You Walk in the Room
  3. If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind
  4. Sealed with a Kiss
  5. Love Me with All Your Heart
  6. Fly Me to the Moon
  7. Past, Present and Future
  8. A Fool Am I
  9. I Can't Reach Your Heart
  10. Sometimes When I'm Dreaming
  11. The End of the World
  12. Remember Me
  13. What Now My Love

 

My Colouring Book is the name of the 2004 album by  Agnetha Fältskog. It was her first album release for 17 years and was well received by ABBA fans, as well as the general music press, with renditions of songs which she had listened to during her teenage years in the 1960's.

Hit singles from the album were "If I Thought You'd Ever Change Your Mind" (#11 in the UK) and "When You Walk in the Room" (UK #34), though many critics nominated "Sometimes When I'm Dreaming" as the stand out track, reminiscent of the quality of ABBA recordings, and was issued in Sweden as a promo-only single.

The album itself reached #12 in the UK, her highest charting album there.

It was announced that around 500,000 copies of the album were sold worldwide. During 2004, the album went silver in the UK for sales of over 60,000,while in her home country of Sweden, during its first week of release, it sold 64,000 copies and reached #1. My Colouring Book also reached #6 in Germany in May 2004.

The title song "My Colouring Book" is a cover of the song originally recorded by Dusty Springfield. "I love this record," enthused Pete Clark in London's Evening Standard, while Daily Mail pointed out that "it reveals a genuine affection for the era's forgotten pop tunes." The Times reviewer noted that "her voice is still an impressive pop instrument," and The Observer shared the same sentiment suggesting that "time hasn't diminished her perfect voice." Reviewing the release in The Guardian, Caroline Sullivan wrote: "Agnetha Fältskog has a vulnerability that gets under the skin of a song. She may be cheating a trifle by including no original material on this collection of 1960s covers, but if anyone can do justice to the likes of "Sealed with a Kiss", it's her. The soaring sentimentality evokes Cilla Black and Sandie Shaw in their mini-skirted pomp, and I don't say that lightly." The release attracted media attention across Europe, but Agnetha  refused to be involved in any extensive promotion of the album (including personal appearances), and thus limited her public exposure to several short newspaper interviews, a few videos and a Swedish-language low-key TV special. Yet, the album managed to sell more than 500,000 copies worldwide, 50,000 of those in the United Kingdom alone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A second single release from the album, "When You Walk in the Room", peaked at number 11 in Sweden and also entered the UK Top 40.

"Sometimes When I'm Dreaming", originally recorded by Art Garfunkel, failed to be released as the third single from the album.

The song was released as a promo only which was issued to some Swedish radio-stations:

"Our Last Video."
 Shortly after this release, for the 2004 semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest, staged in Istanbul 30 years after ABBA had won the contest in Brighton, Fältskog appeared briefly in a special comedy video made for the interval act, entitled "Our Last Video." Each of the four members of the group appeared briefly in cameo roles, as did others such as Cher and Rik Mayall. It was billed as the first time the four had worked together since the group split. In fact, while Bjorn and Benny filmed their more extensive parts together, Frida and Agnetha were filmed for a very short appearance separately and edited to appear together

 

 

 

 

In 2004, Agnetha was nominated for Best Nordic Artist at the Nordic Music Awards, and at Christmas of that year (for the first time in almost 20 years), she gave an extensive interview which was filmed by Swedish TV.

In February 2010, ABBA World, an extensive multi-million pound exhibition, debuted at London's Earls Court and included an extensive interview with Agnetha filmed in Sweden the previous summer.

For the exhibition's Melbourne launch, she recorded a light-hearted opening film together with former ABBA colleague Benny Andersson, shot in Stockholm in June 2010.

 

 


In October 2010, Agnetha was at the opening of Mamma Mia! the musical in Denmark with former husband Ulvaeus

Agnetha continues her private life on the island of Ekerö, just outside Stockholm, which is not the isolated, lonely island of myth, but a populated area on the eastern outskirts of Stockholm. Occasionally she turns up at nightclubs, parties or media events, belying her “recluse” reputation.

 

but otherwise she remains withdrawn from public life.
