‘No release before the summer, hopefully this fall’, says a representative from team ABBA. The band had been due to debut new music at the end of 2018 as part of a virtual ABBA experience that the band had been working on with music mogul Simon Fuller.
As Eurovision week 2018 approaches, some exciting news has broke about the 1974 winners Abba. The quartet comprised of Benny, Bjorn, Annifrid and Agnetha are to reform and release new music, their first album in 35 years. The band had been taking part in a recent virtual reality tour but only appeared together as holograms. This new music is an ‘unexpected consequence’ of that tour.
There is no doubting that Abba have become fashion icons. They are known for their over the top dress sense- sparky numbers, jumpsuits and flares. Below are 12 times when Abba showed they were super troupers and persevered despite having some ridiculous attire.
1. ABBA (stylized ᗅᗺᗷᗅ) were a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972, comprising Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. ABBA is an acronym of the first letters of the band members’ first names and is sometimes stylized as the registered trademark ᗅᗺᗷᗅ. The band became one of the most commercially successful acts in the history of popular music, topping the charts worldwide from 1975 to 1982.

Today we would like to say Thank You For the Music to Eurovision veterans ABBA. We will do this by dedicating a full day to the Swedish Pop Gods on our blog.
