    Thanks for posting. This is the first article I've read which mentions the title of the second song, and the first time I've seen a reference to when the recording sessions took place (June 2017).

    I'm surprised nothing leaked about these recording sessions until now. It's been almost a year, and no one has said anything? That's some secret to keep.

    I just hope they don’t start hooking up with each other again...I don’t think I can stand the drama.:D

    Really looking forward to hearing the new songs. Even if they’re not great, it won’t hurt their legacy. It won’t make you forget The Name Of The Game and SOS, will it?:)

    They could have held onto the news until next week. Today is royal baby day.

    I hope it's 2 danceable barn burners. Call Mark Ronson to produce!

    Meh. Extremely surprised, but still meh.

    I was an ABBA fan back in the day when it was considered uncool to be one, but this really does nothing for me, as I feel they pretty much broke up at the right time.

    That said, they're not doing it for me or my edification, so if they're happy with it, all the more power to them.

    Just saw something about this on TV. Count me in as excited. I had long given up hope of this ever happening.Whatever they have come up with I am sure it will be just fine. Glad to have a few more songs ... and yes of course these are part of the canon.

    The last Abba album was released when Diana and Charles were married. Sobering.

    Im not sure why these type things happen so many years after a break up. Couldnt they have done an EP or something back in 2000?

    I wish them the absolute best on this and hope both songs are beautiful and hooky just as back in the day. But I cannot imagine either of these ladies voices at their age being in the shape theyd need to be in order to pull off those harmonies again.

    I hope I am totally surprised and wrong. And that they get together even again in the studio to make an 8 song album that is great!

    The tour bus left many many years ago, however.

    In a million years this is the last thing I expected. Maybe mortality is a factor. What's next, the audio release and video for "Just Like That!!!" :winkgrin:
    There is nothing to lose.

    Apparently, the new songs are under consideration for the Korean national anthem.

    That song is brilliant.
    I can remember reading about this band as you say about 10 years ago, and people were saying that there really should be some kind of Abba reunion if they can still knock out songs like these.

    I am going to trust Abba with this studio reunion. What they did back then was great music (my opinion) & their declining to regroup & tour was based on reality. Bjorn said it right when he said "We are much older now & could never do on stage what we used to do.". They got back in the studio for two new songs & I truly believe we have two new Abba greats heading our way. I will not create any expectation because I want to be 100% surprised & impressed.
