It was the biggest comeback of the year when ABBA released their first album in 40 years Voyage. Not only was it the fastest selling album of 2021 and reached number 1 in 18 different countries, the Song I Still Have Faith In You was just nominated for a Grammy for ‘Record Of The Year’. Despite of the band’s earthshaking success in the 1970s, this one is their first ever Grammy nomination.
Today, ABBA released the Christmas song Little Things with an official music video on their YouTube channel. The song is about the joy that Christmas brings to families. In the video we see children preparing their own ABBA show, while dressing up as the four band members. You can watch the music video here:
The video was directed and produced by a huge variety of famous names, like Grammy and BRIT-Award winning video director Sophie Muller, as well as the producers Chris Murdoch and Juliette Larthe, performance director Theo Adams and PRETTYBIRD UK.
While Little Things is presented as a Christmas song, it also has a very important background. It is ABBA’s way of supporting UNICEF in their protection of females towards sexual abuse. Or as the band expresses it themselves:
“We think it is impossible to eradicate poverty without the empowerment of women. That’s why we support Unicef inprotecting girls from sexual violence and empowering them through the Global Child Protection Fund.We have done so for many years with our song Chiquitita and now we have decided to give Unicef a Christmas gift in the form of a second song: Little Things from our albumVoyage!”.
ABBA have won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 with Waterloo and quickly became one of the most succesful bands of the entire world. They are still without a doubt the most famous act to have ever performed on the Eurovision stage!
