Mamma Mia, here we go again! ABBA is set to premiere new music along with their holographic tour in 2021.
Super Trouper, Lights Are Gonna Find Them
According to Deadline, the Swedish group – Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Agnetha Fältskog and Bjorn Ulvaeus – were originally planning to release only two songs for their comeback. But the long process between the original announcement in 2018 and now has allowed them time to do more than planned. It will be the first new ABBA music in 35 years.
ABBA released their statement regarding their excitement in their journey, saying:
"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."
Bring In The Dancing Queen
It's been further revealed that for the tour, ABBA will appear as their younger selves. Bjorn Ulvaeus revealed how the process was done:
"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."
Even though ABBA split in 1982, 2016 marked their reunion of the first meeting between songwriters Bjorn and Benny.
