ABBA to release the first new music in 39 years and present a ‘holographic tour’


ABBA have been part of the fabric of queer culture since they danced onto the scene at the Eurovision Song Contest back in 1974 and it looks like we could be hearing some new material from them imminently.


Don’t get us wrong, this has been threatened a good few times and then nothing has materialised. Agnetha Faltskog, Anna-Frid Lyngstad, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson returned to the studio in 2018 promising two new songs later that year.


The tracks the recorded then, I Still Have Faith In You and Don’t Shut Me Down, have been repeatedly delayed but the band are now planning to release FIVE new tracks instead to thank the fans for their patience.


The date of September 2 is the one to watch and there will also be an accompanying holographic show at a custom made theatre in London where fans will be able to see a documentary style with incredible holographic technology. 


Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller came up with the idea saying this of the project: “He came to Stockholm and he presented this idea to us that we could make identical digital copies of ourselves of a certain age and that those copies could then go on tour and they could sing our songs, you know, and lip sync. I’ve seen this project half-way through and it’s already mind-boggling.”
