More than 35 years after they broke up, the four original members of one of the biggest pop groups of all time, Abba, are reuniting.
Variety reports that the group announced today it has recorded two new songs. One of them, “I Still Have Faith in You,” is due out in December.
“That song will be part of a ‘Virtual Abba’ experience in collaboration with ‘American Idol’ creator Simon Fuller first announced in 2016, and it will premiere, via digital versions of band members, on NBC and ABC at the end of this year,” Variety reports.
Details about the second song were not revealed.
The band said in a statement: “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 only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!”
The group had a wildly successful 10-year run following its formation in Sweden in 1972, selling hundreds of millions of albums worldwide and scoring huge hits with “Dancing Queen,” “Mamma Mia,” “Waterloo,” “Fernando,” “Take a Chance on Me” and other songs.
