We still have to pinch ourselves when we're reminded that ABBA have actually recorded new music together.
The legendary Swedish group have recorded a couple of brand new tracks to be released in the coming months, and they have now shared a couple of photos to prove it.
Taken by manager Gorel Hanser, the photos show ABBA's Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus hard at work in the recording studio, while Agnetha Faltskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad lay down some vocals.
Their first new track, ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ is set for a December release, with another expected in 2019.
Special 'Abbatars' will represent the four members of the Swedish pop group for an upcoming digital tour. Björn Ulvaeus said that the two-hour show will be broadcast in the UK and simulcast across the world.
A world tour is then planned for 2019 or 2020, according to the Times.
Benny Andersson has said that the group don't have "anything to prove" with their new material.
"I don't feel that we have to prove anything," he told BBC News. "I don't feel we have to think about, 'Oh, what if it was better before?'
"Maybe it was, but we can't care about that. We do it because we think it was a good thing to do." He added: "We enjoyed it very much. We'll see. I hope you'll like them."
We can't wait!
