ABBA return after 35 years with two new songs


ABBA return after 35 years with two new songs

Sweden's legendary disco group ABBA on Friday (Apr 27) announced that all four members had reunited by recording two new songs after 35 years, media reports said. "We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did," the group said in a statement, confirming speculation of a reunion.

The Swedish pop supergroup said it had recorded two new songs, including one titled I Still Have Faith in You.

The news was announced in an Instagram statement from Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Faltskog.

ABBA won the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo and had a sequin-spangled string of hits including Dancing Queen and Take a Chance on Me before splitting up in 1982.

The band's statement said the members reunited to plan a virtual tour featuring digital avatars, and decided to go back into the studio.

ABBA said: "It was like time had stood still and that we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyous experience!"

I Still Have Faith In You is due to be performed by the group's holograms in a December TV special broadcast by the BBC and NBC.

There was no word on when the second track will be released.

The band members have long said they will never perform live together again.
