Format: DIGITAL DOWNLOAD Swedish Style: The Musical” is inspired by the captivating tale of the break-up of Swedish super group ABBA—a lesser-known but all-important chapter in the quartet’s fabled history. For a decade starting in 1972, ABBA released eight studio albums and a staggering 73 hit singles. In all, Benny, Björn, Frida and Agnetha have sold more than 370 million albums around the world. But all good things come to an end, and ABBA’s demise was sullied with divorce between the two couples, internal strife and ultimately, dissolution. The dramatized theatrical rock musical “Swedish Style”—written by Turkish composer & producer and NYU Tisch School of the Arts Master’s grad Ayhan Sahin, with lyrics by Selcen Pamuk, equally accomplished as a university professor with a PhD and Master’s in Business—is rapt with love, loss, friendship, heartbreak and the penance of ultimate artistic immortality.
What Gastaldi shows us throughout “I’ve Been Meaning To Tell You” is that one can set up residence in the bucolic town of Kenosha, Wis., or the bustling borough of Brooklyn—but the heart has its own home. “I believe in a sense of uniting, simplistic, Lennon-inspired love that I hope to show and share through this album,” he says. “It is always good to give people love. Everyone can use love. It is also absolutely reflective of Wisconsin—how it feels and breathes—because that is such a major part of who I am. I don’t want to ever let that go.”
