ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus says fans can expect a new song “in September or October”. The Swedish pop group broke up 37 years ago, in 1982.
The original members of the band; Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Faltskog reunited last year to plan a virtual tour featuring digital avatars. On April 27, 2018, it was announced that the band had recorded two new songs after 35 years of being inactive, named “I Still Have Faith in You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down”.
On September 18, 2018, in an interview, Benny Andersson said that they are still working on the songs, with possibly a third one written; they are set to be released in 2019.
In explaining why ABBA was planning to release the songs sooner than later, Bjorn Ulvaeus told Denmark’s Ekstra Bladet tabloid that “it takes an extremely long time” to make the video with the avatars of the group members, adding “it has been delayed for too long.”
