Limited green vinyl LP pressing of this album from the former ABBA vocalist. Shine is the fourth studio album by Swedish singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad, and her second international solo album as Frida. It was first released in September 1984. This album has never been officially released in the United States, but was issued in Canada by WEA. This is Lyngstad's last English language studio album to date. After the success of Something's Going On, Phil Collins was to produce again for Frida's next album, but as Genesis formed part of his other commitments, producer Steve Lillywhite took over his role. Recording began on 1 February 1984, at the Studios de la Grande Arm?e, Paris, France. The producer was Steve Lillywhite, and at only 29 years of age, he was already known for his work with Peter Gabriel, the Rolling Stones and U2 amongst others. At the time of recording, both Something's Going On and Shine, Lyngstad wanted to distance herself from the ''typical ABBA pop-sound'' and try new directions. Lillywhite managed to give Lyngstad an even more modern and complex soundscape than Phil Collins had done on her previous album.
