ABBA reunite for digital project

All four members of ABBA are to reunite for a new digital entertainment project in collaboration with music manager Simon Fuller.

The Swedish group have not formally performed together since they split up more than 30 years ago but did appear at a 50th anniversary party over the summer.

The project, which will involve an element of virtual reality, has been described as a “new entertainment experience”.

“We are exploring a new technological world that will allow us to create new forms of entertainment and content we couldn’t have previously imagined,” Fuller said in a statement.

Full details of their new project will be announced next year.

Anna-Frid Lyngstad said fans around the world always ask about a reunion, and added: “I hope this new Abba creation will excite them as much as it excites me.”

Benny Andersson said: “We’re inspired by the limitless possibilities of what the future holds and are loving being a part of creating something new and dramatic here. A time machine that captures the essence of who we were and are.”
