ABBA Announce They're Releasing New Music This Year

ABBA Announce They're Releasing New Music This Year

ABBA fans, 2020 is going to be HUGE. The Swedish pop group have announced they are releasing new music for the first time in 37 years and we can barely contain our hip jives.

Back in 2018, the four-piece group announced they were recording new music, but member Benny Andersson has officially confirmed it's coming this year.

Speaking to ABBAtalk, a fandom website, the 73-year-old musician confirmed the news we've all been waiting for.

"They're coming this year. I'm guessing after the summer. But I can only guess, because I'm not really sure. But I would think so," he says.

"One shouldn't promise anything but if I were to decide myself, it would be September," he continues, before adding: "I can't make that decision alone. But that's what we're aiming for."

The super successful group, made up of Benny, Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, are planning to release two new songs, 'I Still Have Faith in You' and 'Don't Shut Me Down'.

Speaking in 2018, Ulvaeus said of the new tracks: "One of them is a pop tune, very danceable. The other is more timeless, more reflective, that is all I will say. It is Nordic sad, but happy at the same time."

ABBA To Release New Music This Year, Björn Ulvaeus Reveals

He told PA: "I think that exuberant quality of the two ladies (Faltskog and Lyngstad) together singing, that makes the saddest song a bit uplifting. I think that is what happens and that [it] is very organic: [it] isn't calculated, [it] just happened that way."

Their global success spawned eight studio albums from 1973 until 1981, before the band eventually dissolved in 1982 amid divorcing within the group.

Since, innumerable 'best of' albums, ABBA-themed club nights and, of course, the Mamma Mia! films, have secured ABBA's legacy as pop icons.

It's safe to say we have high hopes for the band's new music.
