The band, who have been on a 35-year recording hiatus, announced on Instagram that they chose to "join forces again and return to the recording studio". "But we will be there in the form of holograms and digital avatars", he said. "And it feels good".
Founded in Stockholm in 1972, the Europop group composed of Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad - their initials forming the band's name - made worldwide charts with their unique tunes, featuring classical undertones and synthesizing. "An extremely joyful experience!" said members Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Benny Andersson. The popular 70's disco group who took the world by storm with their unforgettable hits will be getting back together after a whopping 35 years!
On Instagram-page of the group released a statement, which said about recording two songs for the project in which they will perform holographic version Faltskog Agnetha, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Ulvaeus Bjorn and benny Andersson. It was like time stopped and we just returned from a short vacation.
ABBA's avatar performance will premiere on USA networks NBC and ABC before the end of the year with a full tour to follow in 2019. The band never split officially but have not worked together since 1983.
Mamma Mia, ABBA Is Making a Comeback in 2018 — New Music Is on the Way!
The group, comprised of two former couples, has long rejected lucrative deals to reunite, reportedly offered almost a billion dollars for a reunion tour in 2000.
ABBA is estimated to have sold 140 to over 500 million records, which makes them one of the best-selling musical artists EVER, according to BBC.
ABBA's music also featured prominently in two cult Australian films, "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" and "Muriel's Wedding", both released in 1994. And it's called Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again. Outside of the impossible-dream of having the Beatles reunite, a new Abba may be the biggest reunion that music could muster up. It's a risk for the band, which has evidently decided against the easy money of a nostalgia tour.
