ABBA 'Arrival' 40th Anniversary Releases Confirmed ! Picture Discs Plus More !!

OMG !!

The releases for Arrival's 40th Anniversary have been confirmed and they are fabulous !!

A limited edition 7” box set will feature the four singles from the album – the worldwide No.1 smash hit ‘Dancing Queen’, along with ‘Money, Money, Money’, ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’ and ‘Fernando’ – all on coloured vinyl. This box will only be available through ABBA The Museum Shop and D2C shops.

You can pre-order all items at the following sites:

ABBA The Museum

The Sound Of Vinyl

uDiscover Music

‘Dancing Queen’, ‘Money, Money, Money’, ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’ and ‘Fernando’ will be released separately as a limited-edition picture disc.
Finally, a 2LP, half-speed mastered, 45rpm cut of the original album will be released. This rare and specialised technique transforms difficult to cut high-end frequencies into relatively easy to cut mid-range frequencies. The result is a cut with excellent high frequency response and very solid and stable stereo images. In short, half-speed mastering produced a master of the highest quality that enables the pressing plant to produce a superlative record. The album reissue will include new liner notes including a brand new interview with Michael B Tretow, ABBA’s acclaimed producer and “fifth member”.

All products will be released October 7th 2016.


  1. Thanks for the info. Do you know the B sides to these singles?

  2. The B sides are the same as the original singles - not sure what they will look like though. Not long to wait to find out now though :)

  3. Ok thanks. Look forward to seeing your pics if you get them.

  4. I have pre-ordered everything so I will definitely be posting pics of the actual items once I have them :)

  5. the price for the box set in the udiscovermusic and thesoundofvinyl shop is with 35 euro really good. but they want 15 euro for standard freight without tracking number! it's a pitty that this isn't sold at normal online stores like amazon....
