ABBA have released their first ever Christmas single ‘Little Things’ – scroll down to listen and watch the official video.

The Swedish pop titans returned today (December 3) with the new track and pledged to donate all proceeds to Unicef in order to help support the Global Child Protection Fund.

“We think it is impossible to eradicate poverty without the empowerment of women,” ABBA members Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid said. “That’s why we support Unicef in protecting girls from sexual violence and empowering them through the Global Child Protection Fund.”

The band went on to recall their charity efforts with the release of 1979 track ‘Chiquitita’, calling the new release from their latest album ‘Voyage’ “a Christmas gift” to Unicef.

The official music video for ‘Little Things’, which was teased yesterday, has also launched. It’s directed by Grammy and Brit Award-winning director Sophie Muller. Watch below:

ABBA have officially reached 10 Number 1 albums with the release of ‘Voyage’ after their latest record sold more than 204,000 copies in the first seven days after it was released.

“We are so happy that our fans seem to have enjoyed our new album as much as we enjoyed making it!” the band told Official Charts in a statement. “We are absolutely over the moon to have an album at the top of the charts again!”

The band will be taking their new music out on the road next year, with a series of digital concerts in May 2022. Find out more about the groundbreaking performances here.
