In the best news we’ve heard all week, Angie McMahon has hit triple j’s Like A Version studio to bless us with an ABBA cover.
ABBA are responsible for some of the greatest anthems of longing and heartbreak, but their disco-inflexions often make it difficult to wholly dedicate to wallowing. Thankfully, Angie has us covered — delivering an absolutely stunning rendition of their 1976 hit ‘Knowing Me, Knowing You’ that will be much easier to mope along to. Check it out below.

McMahon also performed her track ‘Soon’ of her debut record, Salt. If you haven’t already listened to Salt, you’re only hurting yourself. We think that it’s some of the finest songwriting to come out of this country in recent memory. McMahon recently scored a nomination for Best Independent Release at the 2019 ARIA Awards.

McMahon features alongside artists such as Phoebe Bridgers, Aimee Mann, Patty Griffin and more. You can listen to her cover below.
