The original members of the Swedish pop group ABBA announced Friday they have recorded two new songs.

The four of us decided that after 35 years it would be interesting again to join forces and go to the recording Studio. Their new song "I Still Have Faith in You" will premiere in December.

As the post confirms, ABBA decided to make some new jams together after they were inspired by their upcoming Abbatars tour, which will see computer generated avatars of the Swedish band performing on stages all around the world. It was like time stopped and we just returned from a short vacation.

More than 40 years after its breakthrough, Abba, the band that brought us the hit tracks "Mamma Mia", "Dancing Queen" and "SOS", remains synonymous with bombastic clothing ensembles.

Bjorn, 73, was married to Agnetha, 68, and Benny, 71, was married to Anni-Frid, 72. A VR tour which will sell (wherever they decide to tour) making the Coachella ticket line look like it's standing still. Ulvaeus had treated the idea with disdain, saying in 2014 "you will never see us on stage again ... we don't need the money, for one thing".

They first found global fame after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974 with "Waterloo". And that VR experience inspired the new music!

He said it was "not going to happen", adding: 'I think we don't feel the motivation. "It is digital versions of ABBA, from 1979", Ulvaeus told AFP.

In the song Avicii and Benny, and Bjorn from ABBA focus on not only honoring the legacy of Sweden, and the many natural wonders the small nation holds, but also music as a whole.

2018 will be a huge year for ABBA.

The Swedish group announced on its official Instagram account on April 27 that they have completed two new songs. The 2008 film starring Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried helped introduced their work to a younger generation and the sequel, Mamma Mia!
