ABBA’s Promised New Songs Will Come This Year

Peter Stavros

Or so says, Benny Andersson.

ABBA reunited in 2018 and recorded two new songs. They promised to release them that year, but nothing ever came from it. Since then, it’s been a lot of talk but no action. Fast-forward to 2020, and we are getting more talk. But this time, it sounds way more promising.

In a recent interview, Andersson was asked about the promised songs. This is what he had to say.

‘They’re coming. I would say so,’ he said. ‘They’re coming this year. I’m guessing after the summer. One shouldn’t promise anything but if I were to decide myself, it would be September. I can’t make that decision alone. But that’s what we’re aiming for.’

Mhmm…

Putting the possible release date as late as September of 2020 seems like a good way to make people forget about it by then. If the songs are ready, wouldn’t they be out already? Or perhaps, instead of just a handful of songs, we are getting a full length album? So many questions!

All that’s known is that it’s been over 30 years since we’ve heard any new stuff from ABBA. ‘Dancing Queen’ and ‘Take A Chance On Me’ are stupendous but we want more!
