Muziek Expres, 1985: Just now, Agnetha is truly happy

After the release of her second solo album, Agnetha is sure about one thing: with ‘The Eyes Of A Woman’ she’s on the right track.

She shines as bright as the sun, the beautiful Agnetha Fältskog. The recording sessions for her brand-new album ‘The Eyes Of A Woman’ have been completed recently, and now Agnetha finally has the time to take things easier.

“I still have to do some interviews, but luckily I can stay in Stockholm for that and I don’t have to go abroad in the near future. As it happens, I hate to fly,” she confesses while smiling kindly.
“A few years ago, there was no escaping that, because I obviously had to adjust to the three other ABBA-members. But now I’m free to decide what I will and won’t do. And to be honest, I feel a lot happier with that.”

Although ABBA still exists officially, for the time being we shouldn’t set our hopes on a reunion too much.
“Indeed, for the time being it doesn’t look like it,” she says. “We all went our separate ways more or less. And with success! Apart from that, all four of us seem to feel a lot more happy and free than a few years ago. In any case, that certainly goes for me. I feel much more mature and confident now. I know exactly what I want, and luckily there are no Bennys or Björns around to tell me what I should or shouldn’t do.”

Interesting how it keeps coming up over and over in interviews how much Bjorn and Benny stiffled Agnetha's creativity and input into ABBA matters.
