ABBA announce reunion, new single
Back in 2016, ABBA performed together for the first time in decades at a private party in Stockholm. Now, they've officially announced a reunion and plans for new music. They're releasing a new single, "I Still Have Faith In You," this December, and they have another song recorded too.
The release of the new single will tie in with the band's new virtual reality experience, which will see digital versions of the band performing the new song on NBC and BBC. They previously revealed plans for a hologram tour in 2019.
The band released this 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!
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, Bjorn, Anni-Frid
