Abba has written and recorded new songs, reports The Guardian, and will release them and tour soon. The band split in 1982 after ruling the seventies with its unique mix of folk music, disco and polyester.
The band said in a statement: "The decision to go ahead with the exciting Abba avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence. We all 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 we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!"
One of the two new songs that resulted, I Still Have Faith in You, will feature in a TV special to air in December.
