ABBA All Set To Reunite After 35 Years, Ready To Release New Album
On 28th April 2018
ABBA released their last album back in 1981, 'The visitors' and gave their last stage performance in 1986. Although the band never officially broke up, it drifted apart over the years due to the differences between the members. Now after 35 years it has been announced that the band is ready to make a comeback and might as well release a new album.
#1 ABBA Making A Comeback After All These Years
We all have grown up listening to ABBA. The famous Swedish pop group remembered to this date for giving us some of the most memorable songs of our childhood. We still remember humming to the iconic band's 'Mamma mia' or singing it's heart touching song with mesmerizing lyrics 'The winner takes it all.' Well, we have a good news for you. You have heard it correct, our favorite childhood band ABBA is reuniting after 35 years and we might actually get to hear some more great music from our all-time favorite band.
#2 Bjorn Ulvaeus Recently Announced That Virtual Creations Of The Group Are Underprocess, That Will Represent The Band On A Tour
The news of the reunion comes a few days after singer and songwriter Bjorn Ulvaeus, 72 announced that virtual representations of the band are being designed to represent the group on a tour that will take place in 2019 or 2020. Bjorn added that virtual creations will show ABBA as they were back in their heyday during the 1970s. He said, "We thought we looked good that year."
"They photographed us from all possible angles, they made us grimace in front of cameras, they painted dots on our faces, they measured our heads. Apparently, a cranium doesn't change with age the way the rest of your body falls apart."
#3 The Band Never Ended Officially But The Differences Between The Members Led Them Apart
ABBA was one of the most iconic band of its time and sold over 400 million records worldwide. The band gave its last performance back in the year 1986 and though they never broke up officially, they went through some rough patch. Anni-Frid and Benny, and Bjorn and Agnetha were previously married but both marriages ended in divorce.
#4 Agnetha In Her Interview In 2014 Said That There Is No Meaning In Putting The Group Together
In 2014, Agnetha Fältskog gave an interview and after hearing it, it was assumed by the world that due to their differences the band would never get back again. Agnetha in her interview said, "I think we have to accept that it will not happen, because we are too old and each one of us has their own life. Too many years have gone by since we stopped, and there's really no meaning in putting us together again. It's always nice to see each other now and then and to talk a little and to be a little nostalgic."
#5 Reunion Has Been Confirmed Officially In A Press Release
But apparently no one knows what future really holds for anyone and here we are hearing the news of the reunion and we couldn't be more than overjoyed with the news. The reunion was also confirmed by the Swedish group's manager Gorel Hansen in a press release today. In a statement released by the band's official Instagram page, it read, "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 joyful experience!"
#6 We Might Be Hearing Some New Fresh Music Soon From ABBA!
The statement added, "It resulted in two new songs and one of them 'I Still Have Fair 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.
Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn, Anni-Frid - Stockholm, Sweden, 27 April 2018."
Well whatever the reason the ABBA is getting back, we are just happy with the fact that the iconic singers will be sharing the stage once again and cherry on top we might hear some great music again soon.
