ABBA is Back Together
Whoa! Are you kidding me? ABBA is back together? Yes, true! No, not a tribute band, but the real deal, ABBA! And, with new music for the first time in 35 years.
It was announced to the world on Friday that they got into the studio and recorded 2 new tracks, with one of the tracks called I Still Have Faith In You.
Stunning, isn't it. And, that's not all. ABBA has a TV special coming up in December, and will be touring in 2019 and 2020! Okay, well, sort of. Technology being what it is, the ABBA tour will be virtual-reality. Yep, they will be there, but not there.
The avatar technology being used is meant to make the group look like they did back in 1979, the year of their final tour. It will debut in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC, in December. Then, the world virtual tour begins.
The group said, “We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did. And it was like time had stood still and that we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience! It resulted in two new songs. We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good.” It signed off: “Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn, Anni-Frid - Stockholm, Sweden, 27 April 2018.”
What do you think? Would you go see ABBA in virtual reality? Maybe you'll start singing Dancing Queen?
