In April last year, the iconic Swedish superstar pop quartet behind some of all time’s greatest hits “Dancing Queen” and “Mamma Mia”, ABBA, announced that they are back in the studio for new music, and gearing up for a tour to boot, for the first time since their split in 1983. However, they have just recently announced that they will be pushing back the release of the new music to the second half of 2019.
They have reportedly recorded two new songs, one of which was due to air in a TV special in December of last year. But the release was postponed to early 2019, with the group’s Benny Andersson saying, “I think we are talking about the beginning of next year now.”A source that represents the group has also told Variety that there will be “no release before the summer… Hopefully this fall.”
According to reports, the group is still undergoing a few legality issues, trying to ensure that all agreements are established before they continue.
They have hinted that they will be bringing back a lot of 70s influence in their new music. “I am very proud of both songs. One is like a pop song from the 70s. The other one is kind of timeless,” Andersson said.
