Those who love to entertain cannot stay away from public view for a long time, and Abba is no exception. The Swedish band group is coming together after three and a half decades to share their new Pop Music consisting of two new songs which they will perform in a TV special show in December.

Sky News reports that the foursome decided to regroup and go back to the recording studio. The break, to them, was a temporary phase similar to a holiday. The band members are Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad and their international identity is ABBA - an acronym of their names.

About the group

ABBA translates to pop music of a different genre, and it is undoubtedly one of the most successful groups in the history of pop music. They gained worldwide recognition after winning the coveted Eurovision Song Contest for Sweden in 1974. It happened at The Dome in Brighton, and they have headed the global charts from 1974 to 1982. They continue to be the most successful group to have participated in Eurovision. Their popularity can be gauged from some astounding figures – they have sold millions of records.

In 2016, the band group had announced their plans to tour the world in 2019, but in digital form as holograms alongside a live band. Their hologram tour project has provided the impetus to create new music, and their fans are excited.

Movies of ABBA

They have a huge fan following, and there are a number of films that have been based on their pop music. One of these is “Mamma Mia!” in 2008 with big names like Meryl Streep. It was a runaway success prompting a sequel which is in the pipeline and is slated for release in July 2018.

Incidentally, Faltskog had married Ulvaeus while Lyngstad married Andersson but the marriages did not work out.

However, that has not dented their popularity, and their songs and music continue to keep the audience enthralled even now. Times have changed, but the love of wonderful lyrics encased in sweet foot tapping music will always remain. Fans of ABBA are eagerly awaiting their return and time will judge whether they still command the same respect.

The Guardian adds that the comeback of ABBA will be via a two-hour TV show to be co-produced by NBC and the BBC. Computer-generated avatars of the band members will be seen in the show. The avatars have been made to resemble the image of the members as they looked in 1979 during their third and final tour.
