Alongside the album news, ABBA have announced they’ll be performing a ‘revolutionary’ concert in London next year in a custom-built, 3,000 capacity arena in the English capital’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Sign up for pre-sale tickets here.
The show will see digital avatars of each member - Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid - performing alongside a 10-piece live band.

Star Wars creator George Lucas’ studio Industrial Light & Magic helped develop the avatars, which is described as first-of-its-kind technology, utilising motion-capture of each member to create the young digital versions.
ABBA’s last album ‘The Visitors’ came out in 1981, ahead of their initial split in 1983, which was partly caused by the marriages within the band dissolved. Björn Ulvaeus and Agnetha Fältskog got married in 1971 and divorced in 1979, while Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Benny Andersson married in 1978 and divorced in 1981.
They reunited publicly at a party in Stockholm in 2016, announcing they had recorded new music together in 2018.
