Deutsche GrammophonFounding ABBA keyboardist/songwriter Benny Andersson has recorded an album titled Piano, featuring solo piano versions of a career-spanning selection of his compositions.

Due out September 29, the 21-track collection features ABBA tunes, songs from Andersson’s solo albums, and pieces from some of the stage musicals on which he collaborated with his ABBA songwriting partner Bjorn Ulvaeus, including Chess and Kristina from Duvemåla.

Among the ABBA songs appearing on Piano are “Thank You for the Music,” “I Let the Music Speak,” “I Wonder (Departure),” and “Happy New Year.” In advance of the album’s arrival, “Thank You for the Music” has been released as a digital download and is also available via streaming services.

“In the process of recording this album, I have come to realize that the pieces I have chosen to play are an integral part of me,” Andersson says of Piano. “In endeavoring to reach for some core within them, I have found that the more I strip away the clothing, the closer I feel to the music, regardless of whether it was created last year or 40 years ago. In a strange way, I feel like I am playing my memoirs.”
