After nearly four decades, 'Dancing Queen' fans may finally get the music they have been waiting for.
Swedish pop band ABBA announced in 2018 they were set to release their first batch of new music in 35 years.
On Thursday morning, they seemed to be fulfilling their promise, launching a new social media channel teasing a project titled 'Voyage'.
The Twitter post features an image of four glowing gold rings against a black background with the date '09.02.2021'. In the caption, fans are urged to sign up at a new website to be "the first to hear more about ABBA Voyage".
There are rumours that along with new music, ABBA will be announcing a "hologram tour" that the band initially teased in 2016. The show is said to feature "Abba-tars", younger versions of the band's Agnetha Faltskog, Anna-Frid Lyngstad, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, performing some of their most iconic hits like 'Waterloo' and 'Mamma Mia'.
Ulvaeus spoke on the project in 2019, stating that Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller "came to Stockholm and he presented this idea to us that we could make identical digital copies of ourselves of a certain age and that those copies could then go on tour and they could sing our songs, you know, and lip sync. I've seen this project half-way through and it's already mind-boggling."
The band is also expected to drop five new songs- including songs 'I Still Have Faith in You' and 'Don't Shut Me Down' that have been repeatedly delayed- and a documentary as companion pieces to the show.
