  • Disco legends ABBA are coming back with new music. While working on their upcoming virtual reality "time machine" tour for this year, the Swedish quartet announced on Instagram that they were inspired to write and record new songs, which they called an "extremely joyful experience." One of the two new tracks, "I Still Have Faith In You," is expected to be performed by the band members' avatars in a December special on BBC and NBC. The band end their statement, "We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good," and with a familiar sign off: "Agnetha, Benny, Björn, Anni-Frid." ABBA split in 1982 after the release of their 1981 album, The Visitors, and a performance on The Late, Late Breakfast Show in December 1982. They have since reunited for appearances related to the Mamma Mia! films in 2008 and 2016.
