MusicFans have been waiting for this for years and today the time has finally come: ABBA members will reveal their big project “ABBA Voyage” via a live broadcast. Exactly what that will entail isn’t entirely clear, though there has been speculation that the Swedish pop band will release five new songs and tour with – you read that correctly – “ABBA-tars”.
In the 1970s and 1980s, Agnetha Fältskog (71), Anni-Frid Lyngstad (75), Björn Ulvaeus (76) and Benny Andersson (74) scored the only brutal hit after the others. They sold over 370 million records worldwide, until the quartet surrendered in 1983. They finally reconciled in 2016 and forty years after their last studio album, the Swedish pop sensation is now releasing new songs, probably already today.
It already became clear that ABBA was preparing all musical arms for a glorious comeback last week when the group launched their website abbavoyage.com, which fans can sign up for. In addition, the quartet announced via Twitter that they will be announcing their main plans today at 6.45pm BST via a YouTube Live. “Our journey can finally begin again. So be sure to attend this historic livestream,” he sounded excited. The Swedish sensation has also made its way to TikTok, the platform on which hits are made these days.
New ABBA music was already announced in 2018, but the timing has changed several times, in part due to the Corona pandemic. According to the newspaper “The Sun”, the band will release five new songs today. There will also be more news about the tour in which the quartet will be replaced with holograms, called “ABBA-tars”. “ABBA Train introduces the members through the glory years of their careers. They will sing, but also speak to the audience. It would really be a step back in time. That would be amazing,” it still sounded.
