Calling all dancing queens: ABBA’s comeback may well be their last…

There is always excitement when a band announces that they are releasing new music. But there is also a fair amount of surprise when they do so 40 years to the day since their last album dropped!

On September 2, the Swedish pop group gave fans everything they had hoped for. 

“I Still Have Faith in You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down” were released as the first singles from an upcoming album Voyage, and the “Mamma Mia” band also confirmed that they would be embarking on a series of virtual concerts in May next year.

The shows at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will not feature the members of ABBA themselves, but rather digital versions who will appear alongside a 10-piece live band.

As for another tour? Don’t get your hopes up too high…

“It felt great to do it in the end,” said Agnetha Fältskog of the creation process. “One felt that maybe it’s the last thing we do. Same thing with the album.”

If it is indeed their final soirée, at least we can say thank you for the music.
