Swedish pop legends ABBA have announced they are going to be releasing brand new music for the first time in 35 years.

The band, made up of Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, announced the exciting news in an official statement this afternoon.

Taking to ABBA's official Instagram account, the statement reads, 'The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence. We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did.

'And it was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!'

Going on to explain they've recorded two new songs, with one called 'I Still Have Faith In You', the statement continued, 'It resulted in two new songs and one of them "I Still Have Faith In You" will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the BBC aimed for broadcasting in December.

'We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good. Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Anni-Frid'. [sic]

Famous for hits such as 'Waterloo', 'Mamma Mia' and 'Dancing Queen', back in 2016 the popular band announced they would be touring the world in 2019, but in digital form as holograms alongside a live band.

Despite never officially splitting up, ABBA last released music in 1982.

No release date is yet to be given for the release of their new music.
