ABBA reunite for the first time in 40 years!
New singles released "I Still Have Faith In You" and "Don't Shut Me Down"
Voyage is out November 6 featuring 10 new tracks!
"...how the hell did this happen? The Swedish super troupers ride again with Voyage, and there's never been a comeback story like this one: all four original members of a great pop band, reuniting after 40 years apart, with all their powers intact. This album would be a one-of-a-kind historic event even if the songs blew — but it's vintage Abba, on par with their classic 1970s run. It evokes the days when the Norse gods ruled the radio, combining two of the Seventies' hottest trends: heartbreak and sequin-studded pantsuits." — 4 Stars, Rolling Stone
"...this new studio album — the group's first since 1981's brilliant The Visitors and their ninth overall — feels like a genuine pop miracle." — 3 Stars, NME
After years of delay and teasing on social media, ABBA have officially reunited, announcing the new album Voyage out November 6th.
Rolling Stone reports that although the Swedish pop group sang "Me and I" at a private gala in 2016 — their first time performing since 1986 — this marks their first time officially reuniting in 40 years. Ahead of the release, they dropped the reflective ballad "I Still Have Faith In You" and the disco gem "Don't Shut Me Down."
In addition, ABBA will also perform a groundbreaking virtual concert that will premiere in a specially built London arena starting on May 27, 2022. Made through George Lucas' Industrial Light & Magic, Abba Voyage will take place at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park's arena in London. General tickets are available this September 7.
"It's been a while since we made music together," the band said in a statement. "Almost 40 years, actually. We took a break in the spring of 1982 and now we've decided it's time to end it. They say it's foolhardy to wait more than 40 years between albums, so we've recorded a follow-up to The Visitors. We simply call it Voyage and we're truly sailing in uncharted waters."
"It's hard to say what's been the most joyful thing for me with this project," Andersson said. "If it's the involvement in creating the concert together with everyone or being back in the studio together again after 40 years. I think hearing Frida and Agnetha singing again is hard to beat." Added Anni-Frid Lyngstad: "Those first sessions back in 2018 were such fun, and when Benny called and asked if I'd consider singing some more I jumped at it!"
