After nearly four decades of separating and vowing never to get back together, the iconic group ABBA have announced they will be entering a ‘new phase of ABBA’ by uniting for a new album, ‘Voyage’ – set to be released November 5.
They also revealed an upcoming tour in a purpose-built London arena from 27 May 2022. ABBA’s original members, Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, will join forces in the form of revolutionary holograms.
The surprise announcement was made in front of an audience of ABBA superfans and aired to the world in a ‘historic livestream.’
The band have sold a staggering 400 million albums sales over 50 years and had a catalogue of chart-toppers during the 1970s and 1980s after their 1974 Eurovision win with ‘Waterloo.’
When Benny and Björn were asked what fans can expect from their new album, they revealed that there would be a Christmas song. “What can you say about a song? I mean, you have to hear it”, they said, “It’s a little mixture of everything. We have a little Christmas tune too.”
The announcement sent fans into a frenzy as they flooded Twitter with their excitement.
