ABBA To Release New Album With Hologram Concert

After series of cryptic social media posts, ABBA has finally revealed they are releasing a brand new album. This is ABBA\’s first time releasing original music in 40 years. 

Voyage’, the album, featuring 10 new songs will be released on the 5th November 2021. The first two singles from ‘Voyage’ are ‘I Still Have Faith in You’ and \’Don\’t Shut Me Down\’ are available to stream right now.

They have also announced a unique concert, which will see the four members of ABBA on stage de-aged as \’ABBA-tars\’ – hologram-like technology. Each of the four members participated in having motion capture cameras record them singing each song to create the ABBA-tars, using CGI. 


ABBA Voyage is the long-awaited concert, accompanied by a 10-piece live band, in a custom-built arena at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. The venue is currently being built, with the first concert set for May 27th, 2022. Concert tickets will go on sale to the public at 10 am (UK time) on the 7th September. Tickets prices start at £21.

Playing six nights a week, it will feature digital versions of Abba\’s band members, performing 22 of their greatest hits. The show will supposedly last around 1 hour and 30 minutes, according to Benny himself, at the press conference held today. 

ABBA\’s History

Formed in 1972, ABBA became a Swedish supergroup, consisting of songwriters Ulvaeus and Andersson from The Hep Stars and singers Faltskog and Lyngstad, who had scored success as solo artists.

But their joint project completely eclipsed their previous work. After winning the Eurovision Song Contest with Waterloo in 1974, the band sold almost 400 million singles and albums around the world.

Mamma Mia!, the musical based on their hits and produced by Ulvaeus and Andersson, has been seen by more than 50 million people. The musical meant that ABBA amassed a fanbase spanning multiple generations, thanks to the film adaptation of the hit musical Mamma Mia! in 2008, and its sequel in 2018. 

During their most successful period, the band survived marriage break-ups between Ulvaeus and Faltskog, and Lyngstad and Andersson, but they finally called it a day in 1983.

Their final recording sessions, in 1982, produced the hits Under Attack and The Day Before You Came, which featured on the compilation album The Singles.

Their last public performance came in 1985, on a Swedish TV Show, honouring their manager Stig Anderson.
