NEW MUSIC: ABBA | JUST A NOTION
ABBA has dropped their third new single since announcing their reunion last month, an exuberant cut titled "Just A Notion" that will be featured on their forthcoming album "Voyage," arriving on November 5. ABBA confirmed, "Voyage" in September, releasing the new songs “I Still Have Faith in You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down,” three years after announcing their reunion. it will serve as the group’s first studio LP in four decades, following 1981’s "The Visitors." The band has also developed a concert program with digital alter-egos that opens in a purpose-built arena in London next year. The song was initially recorded in September 1978 but didn’t make the final cut of the Swedish hitmakers’ sixth studio album "Voulez-Vous" the following year. The new version features updated instrumentals but retains the vocals from the original recording. In a statement, the group’s Björn Ulvaeus described the new single as “a ridiculously happy song” and that “hopefully it will cheer you up in these dark times!” The ABBA Voyage tour will see a “digital” version of ABBA (not holograms) perform alongside a 10-piece live band. The show run will be at the purpose-built, 3,000-capacity ABBA Arena at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, starting May 27, 2022.
