Björn Ulvaeus has confirmed that ABBA will be releasing five new songs in 2021 after the pandemic halted reunion plans. Their last studio album was released in 1982 but they went on to release songs in 1993 and 1994.
ABBA also consists of Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog. They shot to international fame in 1974 after winning the Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo.
The band consisted of two married couples, Björn and Agnetha and Benny and Anni-Frid, but both relationships have since come to an end. Speaking about getting the band back together in May, Björn said: “It took half a minute and somehow we were back in time like we had been there yesterday as well.
“It was so strange. That feeling between us was extraordinary.”
For the past years, ABBA’s legacy lived on on the West-End and Broadway Stages of their hit musical MAMMA MIA!, which got its own movie treatment twice, as MAMMA MIA! Here We Go Again! was released a few years ago.
Mamma Mia! Dining Experience Restaurants have also popped up across the world, giving the diners a feeling that they are part of the musical and the movie.
Sweden also hosts an ABBA Museum.
