The Visitors is the eighth studio album by Swedish pop group ABBA. It was released on 30 November 1981. With The Visitors, ABBA took several steps away from the "lighter" pop music they had recorded previously and the album is often regarded as a more complex and mature effort.
The Visitors is the self-titled studio album by the band The Visitors released in 1983. The album was originally recorded under the Radio Birdman label Trafalgar Music, and the tapes were left to sit for four years with no interest bar the Phantom EP release.
The Visitors Q&A.
The Visitors ’ title track offers a rare upbeat moment, but it, too, is icier and more brittle than listeners might expect, with new studio techniques certainly sharpening the album’s electronic sheen. The album is, in some sense, overburdened by its wider frames of reference and a biting personal melancholy, but it nonetheless topped the charts in the UK and some other European markets. The Visitors remains their oddball offering – somewhat overlooked at the time, but critically acclaimed in hindsight. ABBA’s story has no closing chapter.

ABBA's final album was recorded during a period of major personal shakeups, principally in the decision by Benny Andersson and Frida to follow the same route to divorce that had already been taken by Björn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Faltskog. Both male members of the group would soon remarry, but at the time, despite all of these changes in their circumstances, The Visitors was never intended as ABBA's swan song - they were to go on recording together. That may explain why, rather than a threadbare, thrown-together feel, The Visitors is a beautifully made, very sophisticated album, filled.
Visitors biography Visitors was the brain-child of the obscure but infamous French producer/composer Jean-Pierre Massiera. In 1974 he single-handedly recruited a group of nineteen musicians (most notably Didier Lockwood, the jazz violinist who spent a brief tenure touring with Magma and made an indelible mark on their 1975 live album) to record an album of his unusual, progressive compositions.
