With filming underway on the Mamma Mia prequel, the founding member of the Swedish supergroup has been sifting through ABBA's music to find the movie's all-important soundtrack.
'That (ABBA's back catalogue) is what triggered Catherine Johnson who wrote the first script, she found that she could use the lyrics to transport the story forward to use it as a part of the narrative, which is probably why it works so well,' Andersson told AAP.
The original 1999 stage musical, which was then adapted into the 2008 hit movie, featured most of the band's biggest hits including Super Trouper, Dancing Queen, The Winner Takes It All and, of course, Mamma Mia.
Meryl Streep is set to reprise her role as Donna Sheridan, the ABBA-loving single mother who was the main character in the 2008 smash hit.
The film, which took audiences by storm, grossed 770.28 (AUD) internationally, with Streep securing an Oscar nomination for her role.
