With their final public performance in 1982, it was believed that the era of popular Swedish Band ABBA was over. But the Swedish Band ABBA is back with their latest album Voyage to be released on November 5 this year.
“In our own words. Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, Anni-Frid”, the official Twitter handled tweeted with a picture that read, “When we got back together in the studio I had no idea what to expect…But Benny’s recording studio is such a friendly and safe environment, and before I knew it I was really enjoying myself! I can hardly believe that finally, the moment has come to share this with the world” – Agnetha
The previous Tweet read “ABBA ARE BACK with ‘Voyage’, a brand new album and revolutionary concert. Listen to two brand new songs now and pre-order ‘Voyage’ from the official store for first access to tickets”. ABBA topped the world music charts between 1974 and 1983 and they were Sweden’s first winner of Eurovision Song contest with their song Waterloo.
Coined from the first letters of their names, ABBA is a band of two married couple and their stage musical ‘Mamma Mia’ is etched in the musical history. The first group from a non-English speaking country to achieve such fame in English pop music, ABBA is one of the bestselling music artists of all time. Hailed as one of the eighth bestselling single artists, more than 400 million records of ABBA were sold in the last five decades.
After a decade-long promising feat, the band eventually fell apart and the members vowed never to return as a group. The members started recording their single performances. The band did come together in 2016 to perform their famous song ‘Mamma Mia’ once more. Ever since the reunion plans were in anvil and they are finally back with their new album. The epic return of ABBA with their new album Voyage kept the Twitterati abuzz with 206 K tweets by Friday afternoon. Fans across the world expressed their excitement tweeting about their comeback.
