ABBA TO RELEASE ALBUM
ALMOST four decades after they broke up, vowing never to get back together, Swedish superstars ABBA have announced they will release a new album.
Voyage, to be released on November 5, will be their first new music in 40 years.
The group’s Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson said during a video launch in London that “we have made a new album with ABBA”.
They also revealed a tour performed by digital avatars – termed “ABBAtars” – will be staged at a 3000-capacity London venue in 2022.
In a live event, streamed worldwide, the group debuted two new songs, I Still Have Faith in You, a rousing emotional ballad, performed by the holograms avatars, and Don’t Shut Me Down, a classic ABBA disco belter.
Ulvaeus and Andersson said “it was time” to get back together.
