Gracias Por La Música is ABBA's first Spanish-language album, released in Spain on April 5 1980 and Latin America on May 10. Gracias Por La Música was originally released due to the unexpected surge in popularity for the group in Latin American countries such as Mexico and Argentina after the release of the Spanish-language versions of Chiquitita and I Have a Dream in 1979. These tracks were both released as singles and went on to become big hits. Encouraged by this success, the band therefore decided to record another eight tracks in Spanish and release a full-length album especially for the Latin American market. The album was also released in Sweden on June 23, and in Japan on July 21 after ABBA played eleven successful concerts earlier in March.
