It has been officially confirmed by Björn Ulvaeus that ABBA will be bringing out five new songs in 2021 as a part of their reunion which was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Fans of ABBA can now rejoice as it has officially been confirmed that the band is releasing new music as a part of the band’s reunion.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, ABBA had to delay the reunion and it has now been put back to 2021, according to Björn Ulvaeus.
Although the band’s last studio album was all the way back in 1982, ABBA continued to release songs in 1993 and 1994.
Later this year, the Swedish four-piece had been planning to release two new songs. However, as the reunion date has been pushed back to next year, it has been confirmed that there will be a further three tracks then initially promised.
Co-host of the Reasons To Be Cheerful podcast, Geoff Lloyd, revealed that he had heard the news from Björn.
He said: “I got to spend an hour with Björn Ulvaeus from ABBA via Zoom. He’s quarantining – he’s got an island in the Stockholm archipelago.
“They’ve recorded five new songs.
“They should have been out at the end of last year… Because of technical difficulties and the pandemic, it’s delayed things.
“But he promised me that the new ABBA music will be out in 2021.”
Alongside Björn Ulvaeus, the band also consists of Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Agnetha Fältskog.
The band shot to international stardom when they won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 with the song ‘Waterloo’.
The band consists of two married couples, Björn and Agnetha and Benny and Anni-Frid. Unfortunately, both relationships have since come to an end.
In May, the band discussed getting back together and 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.”
