ABBA to release new music for first time in 35 years

The Swedish supergroup are back!

ABBA today have announced that they’ll be releasing new music for the first time in 35 years.

Taking to their official Instagram account, the group posted: “The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence.

“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. And it was like time had stood still and that we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!”

Continuing, they added:

“It resulted in two new songs and one of them ‘I Still Have Fair In You’ will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December.

“We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good.”

The group’s manager, Gorel Hanser, also confirmed the news in a press release.
