Bjorn Ulvaeus has hinted a new ABBA album could be on the way.

The Swedish group – which included Ulvaeus, Agnetha Fältskog, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad – revealed they have recorded two new songs this year for the first time since they went their separate ways 35 years ago.

However, the group caused a stir when fans were told they were launching a comeback – but it was supposed to be virtual ‘Abbatars’ created to represent the four members of the Mamma Mia hitmakers.

A world tour for the virtual show is planned for 2019 and 2020 and looks to generate millions of pounds in ticket sales.

The band was originally planning to go ahead with an avatar tour but revealed that their meeting took had an “unexpected consequence”.

And now, Ulvaeus has hinted that a new album could be on its way but has ruled out any on stage performances.

He told A List: “A new album, possibly.

“Or four songs or something like that – that’s possible. But for us to perform on stage that’s just not going to happen. That’s a definite.”

The group haven’t performed since 1986 despite selling more than 400 million albums and they have all resisted reunions but are behind this new project.
