The Swedish pop group sensation ABBA will be back after nearly 35 years for a special project with music guru Simon Fuller, according to foreign entertainment news sources.

However, the details surrounding this project are being kept strictly confidential for the moment.

According to known details so far the quartet Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad will be working with Simon Cowell’s arch nemesis who is the same man behind Spice Girls on a groundbreaking venture utilising the best and very latest in digital and virtual reality technology.

The members of ABBA will not actually reform as such. They will be appearing on screens simultaneously from their living rooms and it will be broadcast to arenas. Or they may appear as holograms. If not it will be something truly awesome we can’t even predict it at this moment.

The Eurovision song contest winners for many successive years who recorded and performed world’s number 1 hits consecutively during their hay day split in 1982 and never re-grouped again to perform on a stage as a band despite many rumours that they would.

Speaking about their mysterious venture, Lyngstad told how fans around the world always ask about a potential reunion, saying: ‘So I hope this new Abba creation will excite them as much as it excites me.’

Andersson continuing said, ‘We’re inspired by the limitless possibilities of what the future holds and are loving being a part of creating something new and dramatic here. A time machine that captures the essence of who we were. And are.’

Fuller then chipped in, ‘The creativity and ideas flowing from the members of Abba over the past few months have filled me with great excitement.

‘We are exploring a new technological world, with virtual reality and artificial intelligence at the forefront that will allow us to create new forms of entertainment and content we couldn’t have previously imagined.’

ABBA will be teaming up with Fuller and Universal Music Group in what is being described as a ‘groundbreaking venture that will utilise the very latest in digital and virtual reality technology’.

The theatre show Mamma Mia brought back the music of ABBA that was later turned into a movie in 2008 starring Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnon, Julie Walters, Colin Firth and Christine Baranski.
