Quote:The Swedish pop group have not formally performed together since they split up more than 30 years ago but did appear at a 50th anniversary party in June.
The project, which will involve virtual reality and artificial intelligence, has been described as a "new entertainment experience".
It will be developed in collaboration with music manager Simon Fuller.
"We are exploring a new technological world that will allow us to create new forms of entertainment and content we couldn't have previously imagined," Fuller said in a statement.
Full details of their new project will be announced in 2017.
Completely spaced my mind until today's news.

Looks like it's actually going to happen, the band that famously declared they'd never reunite preferring their fans remember their younger selves at their peak. They're going to release two new songs, appear as de-aged digital avatars of themselves, then the digital 'experience' will go on a world wide tour.

We have definitely entered the twilight zone.... Tongue

Abba announce first new songs for 35 years

Quote:" The centrepiece is the two-hour TV show co-produced by NBC and the BBC, which will see the band perform as computer-generated avatars. Ulvaeus said the band had been digitally scanned and “de-aged” to look like they did in 1979, when they performed their third and final tour."

"The avatars are then set to tour the world from next year."
