"Fernando" is a song by the Swedish pop group ABBA. It was the group's first non-album single and was released in November 1975 through Polar Music. Lead vocals were sung by Anni-Frid Lyngstad. The track was featured on the compilation album Greatest Hits (1976) in some countries, although in Australia and New Zealand, "Fernando" was included on the group's fourth studio album Arrival. "Fernando" is also featured on the multi-million selling ABBA Gold: Greatest Hits compilation. The song was to become ABBA's best-selling single of all time, with 6,000,000 copies sold in 1976 alone. It is one of the fewer than thirty all-time singles to have sold 10 million (or more) copies worldwide.
