ABBA Announce First Album in 40 Years, Share New Songs…

2021-09-04_075528




ABBA has released two new songs, “I Still Have Faith in You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down,” which were previously teased.

Voyage, the band’s first new album since 1981, will feature the songs. The album will be released on November 5th. Listen to the songs below.

ABBA released The Visitors in November 1981, the final album of their initial run, before disbanding unofficially in 1982. In 2018, 35 years after releasing the farewell single “Thank You for the Music,” ABBA reunited. They hinted the eventual release of “I Still Have Faith in You” at the time.

ABBA has been hinting a digitally-assisted comeback since at least 2016. Finally, on May 27, 2022, the quartet will play the ABBA Voyage concert in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with a 10-piece band.

Benny Anderson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Agnetha Fältskog, and Björn Kristian Ulvaeus, the founding members, will perform as digital representations of themselves, as seen in the “I Still Have Faith in You” visual. According to a news release, the hologram artists took “weeks and months of motion-capture and performance techniques” to construct.
