ABBA reveal they're retiring and won't ever make new music after final album released this week

ABBA have revealed they are retiring and that their new album Voyage will be their last.

The Swedish pop superstars will release their first album in 40 years on 5 November, 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."

"At the moment we feel happy that we got this together and let's hope everything goes well in London at the premiere over there."

The group had to spend weeks performing in front of cameras for their upcoming life-like digital concert and said it felt like it could be their final project together.

She added: "None of us probably knew what to expect but we've worked with it a lot so you grew into it eventually. We stand there doing these songs with I don't know how many cameras and people.

"It felt great to do it in the end because it was so different.

"Also there was a vibe, one felt that maybe it's the last thing we do. Same thing with the album."

The Voyage concert experience will open on 27 May 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.
