The “timeless” I Still Have Faith In You and Don’t Shut Me Down (which was initially verified to exist in April 2018) are out today, along with When You Danced With Me, I Can Be That Woman, and Ode to Freedom, among other songs on the tracklist.
Aside from the album announcement, an ABBA digital character tour with the same name has been announced.
ABBA Voyage will include ABBAtars, digital representations of the band created by George Lucas’ visual effects company, Industrial Light and Magic, performing in a 360-degree immersive experience in a bespoke 3000-seat stadium at Olympic Park in East London.
ABBA Voyage will debut on May 27th of next year and will run six nights a week. The 90-minute event will include the two new tracks as well as the band’s biggest hits.
Tickets start at £21 and go on sale to the general public on September 7 at 10 a.m. BST.
The ABBAtar experience, which was first announced in October 2016, was supposed to premiere in December 2018 on a BBC TV special, but it was postponed three times because of legal issues, technological challenges, and then the pandemic.
Voyage is ABBA’s ninth studio album overall, and their first since The Visitors in 1981.
The Eurovision Song Contest winners first charted in the United Kingdom in April 1974 with their competition-winning song Waterloo, which peaked at Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart on April 28, 1974.
ABBA has nine number-one singles and nine number-one albums in the United Kingdom. With 5.61 million copies sold as of August 2021, their greatest hits collection Gold is the only album to spend more than 1000 weeks on the Official Albums Chart and is the second best-selling album of all time in the UK.
