Something's Going On is the third solo album by Swedish singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad (Frida), one of the founding members of the Swedish pop group ABBA, and her first album recorded entirely in English. Her previous two albums had been recorded in Swedish. Recorded in 1982 during the final months of ABBA, Something's Going On was first released in September 1982.

Something's Going On boasts impressive guitar work by Daryl Stuermer, who has toured with Genesis as well as appeared on several Collins solo albums. Collins' drum work is also outstanding, particularly on the hard-hitting hit single "I Know There's Something Going O. Frida herself shows an unexpected emotional range given ABBA's two-dimensional pop gloss.

Something's Going On is a dreadful signifier of its time: all early-'80s, bad new-wave production and quirky drum fills, courtesy of producer Phil Collins. Other than the Russ Ballard-penned title track (which at least has a decent tune) and Rod Argent's reflective, rather sweet "Baby Don't You Cry No More," there's little of merit on Anni-Frid's first post-Abba solo album. To hear her so badly supported just makes one yearn for Abba's glory moments all the more. Frida has a great voice and this album is much more rock orientated then anything she has done with ABBA.

Something’s Going On was only Frida’s third solo record, was her first recorded entirely in English, and sold close to two million copies. Something’s Going On is determined to remain a pop album but, working within those broad parameters, it’s also wildly experimental. Years of relentless work with ABBA, and the divorce that closed that chapter, might have seen Frida satisfied to retread former glories, but Something’s Going On sees her making a play at a time when the world lacked a major international female star. Debbie Harry’s band was imploding, while Sheena Easton and Olivia were seen as too safe, so, at the time of the album’s release, everything was still up for grabs.
