We learn from The Aquarium forum that the most famous British gossip paper has published a couple of days ago a short article about Aqua comeback!
After the image the entire article!

Aqua are back to make a splash
SCANDINAVIAN popsters AQUA are back - and with a brand new image to boot.

Nine years after their last hit, the quirky foursome - who have sold more than 33 million records worldwide - have reformed to release a Greatest Hits album.

But don’t let the conservative Victorian-style clobber in the promo shots fool you - the band’s new tunes are as infectiously catchy as ever before.

The LP features 16 old remastered tracks - including No. 1 Barbie Girl - and three new songs: My Mamma Said, Live Fast, Die Young and their first single in nine years, Back To The 80’s.

Click HERE to have an exclusive first listen to Back To The 80’s, out on September 21.

Be warned. You won’t be able to get it out of your head.

We are very happy that they are finally getting the attention they deserve! An article on The Sun and a forthcoming performance at G-A-Y… Great Britain is going to love them!
