|ABBA singles chronology|
The song was released as a 7" vinyl single in Japan in 1973 to promote the group's debut album Ring Ring. "Another Town, Another Train" was also released as a single on Playboy Records in the USA as a follow-up to the group's first single "People Need Love".
Written and performed in the style of Simon and Garfunkel and The Bachelors, the melodic ballad tells of the song's narrator leaving his love as "day is dawning". It was recorded in German under the title "Wer im Wartesaal der Liebe steht" (with lyrics by Fred Jay), as the B-side to the German version of "Ring Ring". With lyrics in Swedish, "En annan stad, en annan vän", it was covered by dance band Schytts in 1974, and by fellow Eurovision participant Kikki Danielsson in 1991 on her album "Vägen hem till dej".
