To enter the competition all you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a note confirming the name of the Abba track Hazell released as a single at the end of 2016.
The competition will close later today - note that due to postage the competition is only open to those who live in Western Europe and North America.
Issue number 33 of the ABBA Magazine was published in March 1981 - not a huge amount of content in this issue - probably as all of the "Super Trouper" promotion work was complete by this point.
As with issue 32 the magazine is still trying to work out whether the next single will be "Happy New Year" (a few months too late!) or "On And On And On".
There are some interesting sales figures - in the UK on the Wednesday before Christmas the "Super Trouper" album sold 116,000 copies in a single day - pretty impressive !
