After 35-year hiatus, ABBA announces new music

After 35-year hiatus, ABBA announces new music

Abba's Björn Ulvaeus discussed the specs of this mysterious project, saying that the TV special will be produced by the BBC and NBC, which will create avatars to perform the music. They were formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1979 and were composed of two couples, Bjor Ulvaeus and Agnetha Faltskog and Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. They have not sung together publicly since 1986.

Before this, the last song the group ever recorded together was "The Day Before You Came" released in 1982. The band spawned a musical, which ran on Broadway and in the West End, which spawned a movie adaptation (which recently spawned a sequel, Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again, which is out this summer).

"I'm as surprised as everyone else", he said.

Abba is one of the world's best-selling recording artists. He was found dead a week ago in Oman, where he had been on holiday with friends. The band has recorded two songs ready to release, one of which I Still Have Faith In You, will be performed by them on NBC and BBC shows in U.S. and United Kingdom respectively in December.

ABBA's back, with two new songs for the first time since - well, since forever. "And it feels good", they wrote. The group dominated the 1970s disco scene with their glitzy costumes, kitsch dance routines and catchy melodies.

The Swedish pop group were catapulted to worldwide success after scooping the Eurovision Song Contest with their song Waterloo when the event was held in Brighton in 1974.

"There is simply no motivation to regroup". So when the announcement came on Friday fans were overjoyed.

Manager ABBA Burned Hanser confirmed the news in a press release. "This is the craziest thing I've heard!" I never thought this would happen. In fact, as of 2014, only The Beetles had sold more records than them!

"BREAKING: ABBA have reformed".

The Swedish group announced on its official Instagram account on April 27 that they have completed two new songs.

"It was the same wonderful chemistry".

"And it was like time stood still".

Agnetha Faltskog even said in a BBC interview in 2013 that she wanted to leave the band permanently in the past. And it's called Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again.
