Abba is back – level 3

10-09-2021 07:00

The Swedish pop quartet Abba reunited after 40 years for Voyage, an album of new songs set for release on the 5th of November.

The group, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fӓltskog, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Bjӧrn Ulvaeus, returned to the studio in 2018, promising two new songs later that year. However, they then agreed to do a whole album. The tracks have been repeatedly delayed, and the band is now planning to release five tracks to thank fans for their patience.

The quartet have also announced a new concert experience in London. Digital versions of themselves will appear nightly alongside a 10-piece live band at a new 3,000-capacity venue in east London, called the Abba Arena. Fans will also be able to see a documentary-style film on the band´s comeback.

Formed in 1972, Abba was essentially a Swedish group consisting of two songwriters and two singers who scored success as solo artists. After winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974, the band sold almost 400 million singles and albums around the world.

Difficult words: quartet (a group of four people playing music or singing together), piece (an instrument), venue (the place where something happens), solo (alone).
