Da Capo is the fourth studio album released by Swedish pop group Ace of Base. It was released in 2002 in Europe (on Edel-Mega/Universal) and Japan (on Toshiba EMI with a different cover and additional tracks).

The album is named for the musical term da capo, meaning "back to the beginning." It was intended to be a return to the band's initial sound.

Background

The album was initially slated for a summer 2000 release, but problems with Ace of Base's record labels caused it to be delayed for another year. The band's record label demanded that many of the album's songs be reworked with additional producers. Ultimately, Da Capo came out at the end of September 2002, and resulted in very low album sales in many European territories. The album was planned to be released in the United States in 2003, but no release surfaced.[5]

The minimal promotion was handled by two out of the four band members, Jenny Berggren and Ulf Ekberg. Jonas Berggren wanted to stay at home with his two children and Malin Berggren only attended one performance in Germany in 2002. During promotion Jenny and Ulf visited Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Germany, Poland and Austria.

In an interview, Ulf said that the group would release the album in the United States, with the songs being more acoustic. However, it never came out in America or Australia, although it has recently become available on iTunes. Polydor Records gave it a "soft release" in the UK on 21 October 2002 with no promotion nor any radio singles as Polydor believed that the band were no longer relevant to the British music scene. The album was released with Copy Control protection in some regions.

The title track was later featured on Dance Dance Revolution Supernova in 2006. As of 2008, Da Capo has sold over 600,000 copies, far fewer than Ace of Base's earlier releases.

This is the last studio album with the original lineup to date.
