Abba co-founder Björn Ulvaeus has confirmed that Abba has five new songs on the way.
Björn discussed the music with London’s Telegraph saying that one song ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ is about the strong bonds the four members continue to share.
It was really quite amazing, being back in the studio. Like we never left. Although I’m not telling you when those new songs will be released because we’ve already missed too many dates,” he said.
The new music was meant to be released last year. Björn says it will now be next year, citing technical difficulties for the delay. He told Smooth London, “Because of technical difficulties in creating the digital copies of ourselves that are going to sing these songs, it won’t be until next year.”
The man behind the Abba digital recreations is Simon Fuller. “He approached us and we thought, ‘Yeah, that’s crazy enough, that’s interesting and it’s a new frontier, something no one has ever done before’. So we said, ‘Absolutely, yes! Let’s see what happens. Let’s try and make a project out of it,” Bjorn said.
He said, “I won´t promise any date, but next year is when you get to hear the new songs”….”yes, we were in the studio recently……but the other three don´t want me to say anything about this…”
