New Abba tracks? Gimme gimme!

IT is news that will have fans dust­ing off their plat­form boots.

Abba’s Bjorn Ul­vaeus has con­firmed the group will re­lease new mu­sic by the end of this year – al­most four decades after they broke up. The quar­tet first promised fresh ma­te­rial last year when they un­veiled plans for a ‘dig­i­tal tour’ fea­tur­ing holo­grams from their 1970s hey­day.

But after ini­tial de­lays in pro­duc­ing the dig­i­tal avatars – or ‘Ab­batars’ – Ul­vaeus, 73, said he is hope­ful the tracks will be ready by ‘Septem­ber or Oc­to­ber’. He told Den­mark’s Ek­stra Bladet yes­ter­day that the project ‘has been de­layed for too long’.

Com­puter ex­perts are us­ing old videos to dig­i­tally repli­cate how the band danced, dressed and sang. A two-hour show is set to be broad­cast across the world, with a vir­tual tour to fol­low.
