ABBA reunion: New music release date update – Here’s when we will hear TWO new songs
Last year it was revealed that the iconic quartet had recorded two new songs. The tracks were announced prior to the release of Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! in cinemas, and were initially expected to bow at the end of 2018. In fact, bookies even rushed to make them contenders for Christmas number one.
Towards the end of last year, their release was seemingly pushed back to early 2019.
And now we have a little more information: that we won’t be hearing them this side of summer.
The group’s spokesperson Gorel Hanser told the Daily Star: “The songs will definitely not come before the summer, possibly afterwards.”
And there’s bad news for anyone hoping the new tracks will pave the way for something bigger.
“There will be two songs released. No album,” he insisted.
ABBA legend Bjorn Ulvaeus had last year teased the sound of the new tracks.
“One of them is a pop tune, very danceable,” Ulvaeus said.
“The other is more timeless, more reflective, that is all I will say. It is Nordic sad, but happy at the same time.
“I think that exuberant quality of the two ladies [Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad] together singing, that makes the saddest song a bit uplifting.”
He also conclusively ruled out the possibility of the four reuniting on stage to perform ever again – although a ‘digital avatar tour’ is still in the pipeline.
The group are also due to release a TV special, entitled Thank You For The Music.
The band shot to fame in the early 1970s, and won Eurovision in 1974 with Waterloo. They split in 1982.
