ABBA have announced new music is on the horizon for the first time in over three decades.
Revealing the news on their official Instagram account, the group wrote “The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence… 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 Fair In You’ will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December.”
Bar a one-off special appearance in 2016, the Swedish group have not performed for a live audience since 1986… and this got us thinking. Obviously we love a Glastonbury rumour over here, but with the four-piece so integral in the pop sphere since their career kicked off in the 1970s, could a Glasto Legends Slot appearance be looming? ABBA are one of the few groups never to have graced the Pyramid Stage, and though initially just a ‘virtual tour’ we wouldn’t be surprised if a phone-call from the Eavis crew isn’t too far behind.
More as we hear it.
