ABBA Announce Their Return To The Rock Scene After Almost Four Decades
ABBA recently revealed on their newly launched Twitter account ABBA Voyage that they will go back to performing and releasing songs together. The band also announced their mysterious project’s release date and surprised their fans with a series of news after almost forty years of absence.
As you might know, ABBA released their latest and eighth studio album entitled ‘The Visitors’ on November 30, 1981. The album received very positive reviews from critics and fans. The record also marked the change in ABBA’s sound and style and explored themes such as the Cold War, regret, and isolation.
Since then, the band hasn’t released any songs or albums and hadn’t come together on the stage until they reunited at ‘Mamma Mia! The Party’ in Stockholm, on January 20, 2016. ABBA’s longtime fans felt thrilled upon hearing the news. The band also surprised their fans when they announced that they have recorded two songs, ‘I Still Have Faith in You’ and ‘Don’t Shut Me Down.’
Furthermore, the band members had previously revealed that they collaborated with Simon Fuller for a digital entertainment project, but it was delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Recently, ABBA invited their fans to join them on the ABBA Voyage website. There isn’t anything on the website now except the date, which is September 2, 2021. It can be either an announcement date for their virtual project or the release of their upcoming songs.
Here’s what the band wrote on their Twitter account:
