ABBA Is Back After Decades

The famous artist group ABBA is finally making a comeback after 35 years! Ever since the pop band split up in 1983, there has not been any content released. That is, until their recent special announcement. ABBA has been secretly producing new music for the past few years. According to Alex Needham (writer from The Guardian), in December, there will be a two-hour TV special during which we will see them perform as computer-generated avatars, including one of the two new songs called “I Still Have Faith In You.” Also, according to Louise Randell (writer from The Sun), ABBA is not only going to be releasing new music but also going on a world tour! The former singer Björn Ulvaeus has revealed that the tour will take place in the year 2020. This is the statement released on the official ABBA account on Instagram:

 

 

For those who don’t know, ABBA is a Swedish pop band who debuted in the year 1972. The band is formed by Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. They are mostly known for the songs: "Dancing Queen ", "Mamma Mia", "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) " (which Madonna has made a remake for the song “ Hung Up ”), and so many more great hits! Fun fact: The musical movie Mamma Mia!’s songs were originally composed by the band’s former member Benny Andersson. Here is one of the most iconic scenes of the film!:

 

The sequel for Mamma Mia! called Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is scheduled to be released this year on July 20th, featuring the original cast. Honestly, I’m looking forward to seeing the band’s new music and hopefully, it will be just as catchy and iconic as their other music!
