This year, National Album Day is “Celebrating the 90s”.
Blending classic pop melodies, dancefloor beats and a unique twist on reggae, served up with a side order of Nordic melancholy, Sweden’s Ace of Base became a global phenomenon in the 1990s. And the hits still stand the test of time thirty years on.
Debut album “Happy Nation” features five hit singles, including All That She Wants [UK # 1, US # 2], The Sign [UK #2, US # 1] and Don’t Turn Around [UK # 5, US # 4]. The album entered the UK albums chart in June 1993, eventually reaching Number 1 a year later, a position it also achieved in the US album charts.
This classic album is issued as a limited edition picture disc for the first time, housed in a die-cut sleeve.
