ABBA releasing new music is a rare occasion, but fans will have to wait for it to arrive.
New ABBA songs were promised by the Swedish band back in April, followed by news that a new album was “possible”.
An ABBA reunion obviously garnered excitement, but a representative for the group told Variety that there will be “no release before the summer”, before adding “hopefully this fall”.
Benny Andersson has previously said that the delay was out of their hands.
“We are still trying to establish the agreement that needs to be done to be able to continue. We are good. It’s the other side, everything that has to be done, everything that has to be drawn. It’s delayed. It’s not our doing.”
The new songs, titled ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ and ‘Don’t Shut Me Down’, are for an “avatar tour project”, as Bjorn Ulvaeus said an actual live show featuring the members was “not going to happen.”
