The members of ABBA have announced that they have recorded new material for the first time in 35 years.
The Swedish pop supergroup said it had recorded two new songs, including one titled “I Still Have Faith in You.”
The news was announced in an Instagram statement from Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Faltskog.
In the 1970’s ABBA were one of the world’s leading music groups. They won the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest with “Waterloo” and had a sequin-spangled string of hits including “Dancing Queen” and “Take a Chance on Me” before splitting up in 1982.
The band said they reunited to plan a virtual tour featuring digital avatars, and decided to go back into the studio.
The band members have performed together just once since the 1980s, at a private party in 2016, and have long said they will never tour live together again.
