Pretty Maids vocalist Ronnie Atkins has unveiled a new single & music video, the title track to his upcoming solo album, ‘Make It Count’.
“One of these songs that took a slight change during the making of it. Starts out as a ballad really and then later turns into something quite different. Despite the genre that I’ve delved into for the last 40 years, I guess It’s no secret that I’m a big pop fan as well. And one of the bands I grew up within the ’70s and that always influenced me big time were ABBA and quite frankly, they are some of the greatest songwriters ever in the music industry, if you ask me. So, when Chris Laney [producer] brought up the opportunity to have legendary ABBA guitarist Lasse Wellander playing on this song, there was no way I could resist that. He does a great job and I’m honored to have him playing on one of my songs. Hope you’ll like the song as much as I do….” – Ronnie Atkins, February 2022
