Swedish recording artist and entertainer
Agneta Åse Fältskog (born 5 April 1950), better known as Agnetha Fältskog (Swedish pronunciation: [aŋˈnêːta ˈfɛ̂ltskuːɡ] (listen)), is a Swedish singer, songwriter, musician and actress. She achieved success in Sweden after the release of her debut album Agnetha Fältskog in 1968, and reached international stardom as a member of the pop group ABBA, which has sold over 380 million albums and singles worldwide, making them one of the best-selling music artists in history.
After the break-up of ABBA, Fältskog found success with three albums and a leading role in a movie as a solo artist in the 1980s, though she became more solitary in the nineties, avoiding outside publicity and residing on the Stockholm County island of Ekerö. Fältskog stopped recording music for almost 17 years until she released a new album in 2004. She returned again in 2013 with A, her highest UK charting solo album to date.
