Ace of Base to Release a New Album, Even Though Nobody Saw That Coming

Did anyone see the sign when it comes to the possibility of ever hearing a new Ace of Base album? Not I.

Consequence of Sound reports that the Swedish pop group -- fondly remembered by all as a 90s ABBA -- will be releasing their latest studio album on September 24. Most of us forgot about Ace of Base in 1994 until Lady Gaga used a very similar backbeat to that of Ace of Base's "Don't Turn Around" on her hit "Alejandro."

Thankfully, Idolator has given the world the pleasure of listening to the group's new single, "All For You." Good thing, because otherwise I wouldn't have had my daily dose of 90s music today.
