Abba teased a major announcement next week, and we can barely contain ourselves.

The legendary band – Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad – haven’t released any new music in 39 years, instead leaving us with a catalog of all-time bops to release at every party.

But they piqued our interest by promising us a new project next week, called Abba Voyage.

A lap? Just one? An all-inclusive cruise? The spirit is mind boggling.

The group this morning launched a brand new Twitter account with the handle @ABBAVoyage, whose bio reads simply: “Join us”.

His first tweet was a cryptic image of four shiny gold rings, dated 9/2/21.

A link to the official site doesn’t reveal much else, but urged fans to sign up for a mailing list to be the first to hear about the announcement.

According to The Sun, Abba Voyage will involve “Abba-tars”, or holograms, of Swedish stars as younger ones, performing their biggest hits, like Waterloo, Dancing Queen and Mamma Mia.

The show would be accompanied by a documentary film showing the process from creating new music to building a theater in East London for the high-tech show.

A source said: ‘Bjorn, Benny, Agnetha and Anni-Frid will all be in attendance on opening night. And they will finally unveil their Abba-tars, which are like holograms of themselves.

“The show will feature the Abba-tars playing and speaking to the audience. It will be like stepping back in time for those who watch.

The show is slated to open in May 2022, but for those who don’t attend, Abba will also be releasing new music.

Abba had apparently been working on the concept with Simon Fuller – the man behind the Spice Girls and Pop Idol – since 2019, but it has been delayed due to the pandemic.

In 2018, they revealed that they had recorded new music while working on a “digital avatar” project, which was initially scheduled to air in December by NBC and the BBC.

Björn, 76, Benny, 74, Agnetha, 71, and Anni-Frid, 75, last released new music in 1981 when they released their eighth album The Visitors, featuring the songs When All Is Said and Done and One Of Us.
