The book is available exclusively at ABBAWorld with Björn’s royalties going to Nodhoff Robbins – musical therapy charity.
The story is centered around the piano, now on display at ABBAWorld, that was used for writing so many of ABBA’s hit songs. Ulvaeus found the inspiration for the book when visiting the writing hut that he and Benny Andersson used to share in the Stockholm archipelago during the ABBA years.
"The little white piano was just standing there gathering dust in our old cabin, and after all these years it was now about to go on this amazing journey together with ABBAWorld. The story just begged to be written," says Ulvaeus.
Magnus Danielsson, president of Touring Exhibitions, the company behind ABBAWorld, says the book adds another dimension to the exhibition: "When we learned that Björn was going to write a book about the piano we have on display, exclusively for ABBAWorld, we were delighted. The story reflects the humble origins of ABBA and their music and it complements our recreation of the writing hut at the exhibition in a very moving way."
The Little White Piano is available at the official ABBAWorld store at the exhibition. A copy of The Little White Piano, signed by Björn Ulvaeus will be auctioned off at abbaworld.com. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Amnesty International.
