ABBA has returned, and they’re releasing their first album in 40 YEARS. It’s called “Voyage”, and it’ll be out November 5th.
The four members of ABBA…Agnetha Fältskog, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, and Björn Ulvaeus…put on those crazy motion-capture suits and spent “weeks and months” creating a digital performance.
Those digital avatars…which look like the YOUNG version of ABBA…will “perform” along with a live 10-piece orchestra. These are NOT holograms, by the way. The technology is different.
The show will open at a 3,000-seat arena in London. There’s no word if it’ll tour. Tickets will go on sale next week at ABBAVoyage.com.
The band says, “We’re going to be able to sit back in an audience and watch our digital selves perform our songs on a stage in a custom-built arena in London next spring. Weird and wonderful!”
