Legendary Group ABBA is Reuniting After 35 Years!

Legendary Swedish group ABBA is reuniting for the first time in 35 years!

Page Six has reported that the foursome is set to film a special that will air on NBC in the states and BBC in the UK.  

Not only that, but the group will release two new songs including "I Still Have Faith in You" which will be released in December. A little ABBA for the holidays? Sign us up!

The band, consisting of Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, who previously reunited for a one-off private party in 2016, is looking forward to the public falling in love with ABBA all over again.

“We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and get into the recording studio," they said. "So we did. And it was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience."

“It resulted in two new songs and one of them, ‘I Still Have Faith In You,’ will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December.”

ABBA had 20 songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100 throughout their time together, with four cracking the top 20 ("Take a Chance on Me", "The Name of the Game", "The Winner Takes it All", "Waterloo") and one number one ("Dancing Queen.") It's good timing as the sequel to the film Mamma Mia, which is based off their legendary music, is set to be released on July 20th.  So 2018 will be quite the ABBA year indeed.
