This is the news I've been waiting for for a *long* time!

ABBA were and are my first musical love. I've been a fan since I was 2 years old and they have soundtracked my life.

The video for "I Still Have Faith In You" makes me weep! Though it very much sounds like it could be taken from the "Chess" soundtrack. It has an element of musical theatre about it.

The second new song, "Don't Shut Me Down", is a more traditional sounding ABBA track. It sits nicely with songs like "If It Wasn't For The Nights" and "Dancing Queen", with a bit of "One of Us" and "Under Attack" thrown in for good measure. For the die-hards, I think it may be a sequel to "Just Like That".

The new album is out November 5th and the Voyage digital concert opens in May.

The video for "I Still Have Faith In You" can be found here:

Here is the second new song, "Don't Shut Me Down"

And here is some information about the Avatar concert and it's development. Very interesting technology, if this works well, it could really be the way forward, especially for legacy acts. This way, ABBA concerts can continue for many many years, long after Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn & Frida have departed.
