After nearly four decades apart, Abba surprised his fans by announcing his return.

The legendary Swedish pop band announced a new album and a virtual concert.

Abba Travel (“Abba’s Journey”) will be released in November, ahead of a series of “revolutionary” concerts in which virtual avatars will perform hits such as Oh Mama and Waterloo.

The members of the quartet, which broke up in 1982, said they got together to record a few songs but ended up creating a disk of 10 songs and planning a show.
