At the end of the decade he became the boyfriend of Marie Anderson, the daughter of ABBA manager Stig Anderson. In 1979 he started recording for Polar Music and also joined ABBA as backing vocalist on their tour of North America and Europe. The concerts offered him a solo spot where he could perform his first single for Polar, ’Not Bad At All’.
Tomas also joined ABBA on their 1980 tour of Japan, and the following year he contributed backing vocals for the concert part of the television special Dick Cavett Meets ABBA. In 1982 he recorded a duet single with Agnetha Fältskog, ’Never Again’, which became a hit in Europe and Latin America.
Tomas Ledin and Marie Anderson were married in 1983. From the late 1980s and for the best part of two decades Tomas recorded for Marie’s record labels: first The Record Station and then Anderson Records. He is still one of the most popular artists in Sweden, recording and touring regularly.
