Mamma mia! The ABBA comeback is upon us, with the group reportedly plotting its return next week. 

Back in 2017, the iconic pop group announced they’d be reuniting for a digital concert in 2019, performing as ‘Abbatars’ with five new tracks. However, due to the pandemic and other delays, fans have been left shouting Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!

‘ABBA are finally making their comeback and plan to release their first new music in 39 years next Friday – it’s huge,’ a source familiar with the group told The Sun.

The Swedish quartet are also preparing their Abba Voyage show, featuring holograms of their younger selves. ‘Björn, Benny, Agnetha and Anni-Frid will all be there on the opening night. And they will finally unveil their Abbatars, which are like holograms of themselves,’ the source said.
