On November 5, a new ABBA album will be released for the first time in forty years. On Thursday the group will release the single ‘Just A Notion’, last month the songs ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ and ‘Don’t Shut Me Down’ were also released. In addition, there will be concerts with holograms of the four band members in a special new hall in London.

“This is it, and this is how it should be. We also broke up in 1982, but then we never said it was over for good. Now that is the case, it has been nice”, says Andersson now. The split in the eighties was not exactly amicable, and caused a long distance between the band members. This second “divorce” is a lot friendlier, says the singer.
