It's A*Base's "Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry": Listen

Initial news of A*Base's impending arrival came last weekend, and today the teenage Ace Of Base tribute act from Stockholm released their first single, a cover of "Never Gonna Say I'm Sorry." This rather faithful interpretation has already shot up to #6 on Swedish iTunes (bonus: there's an extended mix available, as well), foreshadowing a promising start for the new quartet. It's available worldwide, FYI.

Ultimately, I think it's going to be interesting to see which songs are chosen for the full album (titled, per a press release, Happy Generation).

For now, though, this is an impossibly catchy jam that underscores the fact that, while A*Base might not be the most necessary act out there, resistance is futile.
