ABBA confirm retirement ahead of new album Voyage

ABBA confirm retirement

ABBA's new album Voyage will be their last, the group has confirmed.

The Swedish pop superstars will release their first album in 40 years on Nov. 5, ahead of their ABBA Voyage digital concert shows in Stratford, east London, beginning May 2022.

Speaking to The Guardian, Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus opened up on the project and insisted there will be no more music following the release of the new collection.

Despite revealing there are two songs that didn't make it onto the album, the pair confirmed they will remain unfinished, with Benny saying: "This is it... It's got to be, you know.

"I didn't actually say that, 'This is it' in 1982,' he adds of the group's initial separation. "I never said myself that ABBA was never going to happen again. But I can tell you now: this is it."

Agnetha Faltskog recently cast doubt on the future of the Mamma Mia group, telling Swedish radio: "I don't really dare to say... We're a bit older now and have our minor ailments. We struggle on. But I don't dare say, because it's a bit uncertain."

The Voyage concert experience will open on May 27 at the ABBA Arena, which is a state-of-the-art 3,000 capacity venue located at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.

The concert will feature ABBA's best-loved hits from throughout the years plus two new tracks, I Still Have Faith In You and Don't Shut Me Down.
