Swedish music legends Abba have reunited.
Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid have recorded new music.
”We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it culd be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio”, the group says in a joint statement.

The Swedish superstars in Abba have recorded two new songs, 35 years after calling it quits.

One of the songs, titles ”I still have faith in you” will be premiered in December performed by the Abba avatars in a tv special broadcasted by BBC and NBC.

In a joint statement Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad says:

”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 sound will be familiar, but also modern”

The group confirms that their studio work has resulted in two songs, one called ”I still have faith in you” which is to be released in December with a BBC and NBC tv-special to promote the new Abba avatar tour.

The Swedish supergroup also jokes about the fact that they now are 35 years older than when the group split:

”We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good”, they say in the joint statement.

Speaking to Aftonbladet Abba’s spokesperson Görel Hanser describes Abba’s new session in the studio: ”It was like old times. Easy as nothing, it did’t feel weird that they hadn’t been in the studio together for 35 years.”

Hanser also spoke of the new Abba sound: ”The sound will be familiar, but also modern”.

Hanser declined to comment on a releasedate for the second song and also confirmed that the group won’t reunite on stage other than as avatars in the new Abba avatar tour: ”No, you can not expect them to join forces on stage again. They will not do that” says she.
