Speaking with the group’s member Benny Andersson, the musician revealed there’s hope from the group to release some new music later this year.
“They’re coming this year. I’m guessing after the summer. But I can only guess, because I’m not really sure. But I would think so… One shouldn’t promise anything but if I were to decide myself, it would be September,” before adding: “I can’t make that decision alone. But that’s what we’re aiming for.”
Two songs that were due to premiere on BBC last year, “I Still Have Faith In You,” and “Don’t Shut Me Down,” are ABBA’s first new material in 35 years. “One of them is a pop tune, very danceable,” said Björn Ulvaeus in 2018. “The other is more timeless, more reflective, that is all I will say. It is Nordic sad, but happy at the same time.” We hope to see them released in 2020.
