Mamma Mia! Thursday (Sept. 2) brought some great news for ABBA fans across the globe. The mega-selling Swedish quartet announced that they have reunited after almost four decades apart and recorded a new album, Voyage, which they will perform a run of shows in a specially built arena in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London beginning on May 27, 2022.
According to a statement, the group that split in 1983 — featuring Benny Andersson, Anni-Frid (Frida) Lyngstad, Agnetha Fälskog and Björn Ulvaeus — will be reborn as avatars that will take the stage with a live 10-piece band for the shows celebrating their new studio album, Voyage, the long-awaited follow-up to 1981’s The Visitors. The 10-track album of new songs is due out on Nov. 5 and it will feature two tracks dropped on Thursday, the sweeping ballad “I Still Have Faith in You” and the bouncy pop tune “Don’t Shut Me Down.”
