NEW ALBUM: ABBA | VOYAGE

ABBA, which consists of Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, has reunited and released their new album "Voyage." The 10-track Voyage comes after the relatively deafening silence of four decades - interrupted only by the ABBA Gold and More ABBA Gold albums, a couple of ABBA-inspired hit films Priscilla: Queen of the Desert and Muriel’s Wedding and a Broadway and West End musical Mamma Mia! - the Swedish group formally released two singles in September: "I Still Have Faith In You," "Don’t Shut Me Down and a third, "Just a Notion," landed a week ago. The band is to set for a “revolutionary” set of concerts where virtual avatars will perform many of the group’s classic songs. The live show, ABBA Voyage, will open on 27 May 2022 at the ABBA Arena, a state-of-the-art 3,000 capacity arena located at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. “It’s been a while since we made music together,” the band said in a statement. “We took a break in the spring of 1982 and now we’ve decided it’s time to end it. They say it’s foolhardy to wait more than 40 years between albums, so we’ve recorded a follow-up to The Visitors. “To tell the truth, the main inspiration to record again comes from our involvement in creating the strangest and most spectacular concert you could ever dream of. We’re going to be able to sit back in an audience and watch our digital selves perform our songs on a stage in a custom-built arena in London next spring. Weird and wonderful!”
