ABBA won 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with the song ‘Waterloo’ and became one of the most successful music groups all around the world, while the band sold almost 400 million singles and albums around the world. According to their post on social media, ABBA are back!
ABBA are back to the studio, and the four of them recorded their first new music all together since the 1980s. According to their Instagram post, they’re about to prepare a performance, which will be premiered in December in a TV special broadcast by the BBC and NBC.
The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had am 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 ona ashort holiday. An extremely joyful experience. It resulted in two new songs and one of them ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December. We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good.
Agnetha, Benny, Björn, Anni-Frid.
Their final recording sessions, in 1982, produced the hits “Under Attack” and “The Day Before You Came”, which featured on the compilation album “The Singles”. Their last public performance came three years later, in the Swedish version of TV show This Is Your Life, which honored their manager Stig Anderson.
Whilst we are waiting for their two new songs, give a listen to their Eurovision winning song “Waterloo” right here:
