  • Claire Richards Covers ABBA's “Summer Night City” with Andy Bell

  • British pop group Steps' singer Claire Richards will release her second solo album “Euphoria” on August 25, 2023.

    It is her first album in four years since the 2019 album “My Wildest Dreams”.
    From the album, she released a cover of Swedish pop group ABBA's “Summer Night City” on July 26, 2023.
    This time, she teamed up with British synth-pop duo Erasure's Andy Bell on the track.
    The original version of the song was released by ABBA in 1987.
    It was written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. The cover version was produced by Ian Masterson and Steve Anderson.
    Claire Richards said of the song, “While it’s always scary to tackle ABBA, we chose to include ‘Summer Night City’ on the album because it’s not an obvious choice but it’s an absolute banger. The idea of inviting Andy Bell to duet on this song is truly a full circle moment for me 12 years after becoming friends while competing on Popstar to Operastar. Both Steps and Erasure have so many connections to ABBA. It felt like a perfect match but probably not one people would expect. I’m delighted to have Andy be part of this record.”
