Singer hopes to record with Abba

Robbie Williams is planning to record songs with ABBA.

The Angels singer, 32, has been in talks with former ABBA star Anni-Frid Lyngstad about the possibility of releasing several songs with the Swedish quartet, who split in 1983.

Robbie is said to be particularly keen to re-record the group’s 1975 hit Dancing Queen.

Anni-Frid, 60, says she is thrilled at the prospect of working with Robbie and is waiting for him to finalise their plans. She says: ‘Robbie and I talked about doing an ABBA hit together. He has not yet come back on that one.’

ABBA – married couples Anni-Frid and her husband Benny Andersson, and Bjorn Ulvaeus and his wife Agnetha Faltskog – have refused offers to reunite since splitting.

A source told the Daily Star: ‘Maybe Robbie could be the one to get them together again. It would be a sensational coup.’
