Waterloo was first released in Sweden on March 4, 1974. Recording sessions began in September 1973 and continued until February 1974.

Sessions for what was to become the Waterloo album were well under way when Björn, Benny and Stig Anderson were invited to submit an entry to the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest. The song they came up with was, of course, 'Waterloo'.

This second ABBA album was the first to really show the group as a unified entity - indeed, it was the first album to be released under the new group name. Apart from 'Waterloo' the album spawned a hit in 'Honey, Honey'.
