Swedish pop group Abba have announced they’ve recorded new music for the first time in 35 years.

The band announced it had recorded the new songs, one of which is called ‘I Still Have Faith In You’, on its Instagram account on Friday.

“The decision to go ahead with the exciting Abba avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence,” Abba said on Instagram.

“We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did.

“It was like time had stood still and that we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyous experience!

“It resulted in two new songs and one of them, ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ will be performed … in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December.

“We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good,” the statement added.

Songwriters Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Anderson continued to work together, writing a the musical “Chess” with lyricist Tim Rice in 1984, the four members did not appear together publicly onstage again until 2016.
