ABBA just announced their return, but it looks like they won’t be staying too long.
The beloved Swedish band – Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad – have confirmed that their new music will be their last.
They announced their big comeback in September, confirming the release date of their ninth studio album. Trip, a state-of-the-art live event experience, and the release of two new singles – “I Still Have Faith in You” and “Don’t Shut Me Down”.
What do you think of everyone’s new look?

Ulvaeus, 76, and Andersson, 74, have since told the Guardian that the two tracks that failed to reach Trip will remain unfinished.
“This is it,” Andersson insisted. “It must be, you know.”

He referred to their previous split: “I didn’t really say ‘this is it’ in 1982. I never thought ABBA was never going to happen again. But I can tell you now: this is it.
The two recently released ABBA songs are their first singles since the release of “Under Attack” in 1982. Trip marks the band’s first album since Visitors four decades ago.
They made their last public appearance together in November 1982 on Noel Edmonds’ “Late Late Breakfast Show” before their comeback this year.
