ABBA To Release Two Brand New Songs
Published on 28 April 2018
Mega-exciting news indeed! Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn and Frida have officially announced they have recorded two brand new songs which are scheduled for release at the end of 2018. The ballad ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ has been described as melancholic while the second song, ‘Don’t Shut Me Down’, is up-tempo but not dance music.
A statement from Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn and Anni-Frid on the band’s website explains that, after working on a virtual reality tour project together, the group headed back into the recording studio.
“The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence,” the statement reads. “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 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”.
“We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good.” Check out the statement on the band’s official Instagram page below.
