Mamma mia! ABBA — the Swedish pop group who hit it big in the '70s and early '80s with earworms like "Dancing Queen," "Waterloo," and "Take a Chance on Me" — announced on Friday that they had recorded two new songs ahead of their upcoming avatar tour project. (The group has been working with "American Idol" creator Simon Fuller to design artificial intelligence that will perform in their stead.)
"We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did. And it was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!" read the statement signed by the group's four members, Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.
The statement went on to add that one of the new songs, "I Still Have Faith In You" will be performed by their "digital selves" in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC, scheduled to air in December.
Through the years, the band has been known almost as much for its quirky fashions as its chart-topping hits. And while it's hard to predict what the ABBA holograms will wear, we can only hope they take some inspo from the group's looks of yore. Here, the crazy styles ABBA took a chance on.
