The two new singles are taken from ‘Voyage’, ABBA’s first studio album since 1981’s ‘The Visitor’. Their release was announced at an event on Thursday in London, making a comeback that fans have promised for years.

The four members of ABBA – an acronym made from the initials of their first names – Anni-Frid Lyngstad, 75, Agnetha Fältskog, 71, Björn Ulvaeus, 76, and Benny Andersson, 74, had broken up in 1982’s “Voyage.” , a 10-track album that includes eight new songs and two new versions, “Just a Notion” and “Bumblebee,” will be released on November 5.

It will unfold their hits in an hour and a half, performed by enhanced holograms featuring them young. Tickets for this show will go on sale Tuesday, September 7.
