ABBA / Arrival: half-speed mastered 45RPM 2LP vinyl and other goodies

2LP, box set and picture discs

ABBA‘s fourth studio album, 1976’s Arrival, is 40 this year, and so Polar Music (via Universal) are issuing a 45 RPM half-speed mastered double vinyl edition to celebrate, along with some other goodies: a seven-inch box set and some picture discs!

It may not be their best album (that’s The Visitors) but Arrival boasts both the iconic ‘helicopter’ cover and some of ABBA’s biggest and best-known hits, Dancing Queen, Knowing Me, Knowing You, and Money, Money, Money.

seven-inch box set features the four singles in coloured vinyl pressings

The seven-inch box set of Arrival features those three singles plus Fernando, even though the latter wasn’t on the album anywhere except Australia and New Zealand (it was confined to 1975’s Greatest Hits in most territories). As can be seen above, these are coloured vinyl pressings. Additionally, all four singles will be available separately as seven-inch picture discs.

The double vinyl 45RPM half-speed mastered edition will feature new liner notes written by Swedish journalist Jan Gradvall, who has conducted a brand new interview with Michael B Tretow, ABBA’s producer and ‘fifth member’.

The 2LP is widely available, although the box and seven-inch singles – for now – are only pre-orderable via Universal’s uDiscoverMusic store. All formats will be issued on 7 October 2016.
