Dust off those dancing shoes because ABBA is back and recording music! If you don’t think music has been good since the 70’s, get ready to rock those bellbottoms again. I wish I could name all the hits that ABBA had, but a few include Dancing Queen, Gimme Gimme Gimme!, and Mamma Mia.
It seems that the group coming back together is a “unexpected consequence” that stemmed from the ABBA avatar tour project.
They released a statement on the group’s official Instagram.
“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 had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyous experience.”
They continued to say:
“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”
If you are looking to reminisce with classic ABBA hits, here are the top five according to Billboard.
5. “One of Us”
4. “Knowing Me Knowing You”
3. “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)”
2. “Take a Chance on Me”
1. “Dancing Queen”
Fans were excited to hear that ABBA had a new tour coming up, but fans were sad when the word that there would be no singing or dancing from the classic band. They are really embracing the virtual “Abbatars” that they’ve been working on recently.
