After a 40-year hiatus, ABBA is back with a new album

Agnetha, Bjorn, Benny, and Anni-Frid — better known as ABBA, release their new album "Voyage" on Friday, nearly 40 years after their breakup, with a digital avatar concert in London.

The 10-track album "Voyage" went live Thursday at midnight in various time zones. They will also debut digital avatars, dubbed "ABBAtars," at a May concert in London. 

"At first, it was just two songs, but then we said, 'Well, maybe we should do a few more,' what do you think girls, and they said 'Yeah,'" Benny Andersson, 74, explained when the album was announced.

After years of speculation and several hints, the band finally announced their reunion and new album in September, along with the singles "I still have faith in you" and "Don't shut me down." 

In addition to the two songs released in September, a third track from the album, a modernized version of "Just A Notion," originally recorded in 1978 but never released, was released in October.

One of the group's most well-known experts, Jean-Marie Potiez, believes that ABBA's sound has improved with age. Andersson told the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter.
