Abba is back – level 2

10-09-2021 07:00

Abba is a Swedish band that has two singers and two songwriters who started working together in 1972.

In 1974, Abba won the Eurovision Song Contest, and after that, the band became popular around the world. Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fӓltskog, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Bjӧrn Ulvaeus sold almost 400 million singles and albums worldwide.

In 2018, they met in a studio again, and they promised two new songs. Later, they decided to do a whole album, but there was a long delay. The band announced that they would release the album Voyage on November 5th.

There will be a special concert in London, England, where holograms of the artists will sing alongside a live band. Fans will also get the chance to see a video on the band´s comeback.

Difficult words: release (to make something available to the public to watch or buy), hologram (a virtual image), comeback (when a well-known person returns to the activity in which he was successful in the past).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
