It’s been over three-decades since ABBA released new music and now the band are planning on releasing two new songs. Benny Andersson hopes fans will be able to hear I Still Have Faith In You and Don’t Shut Me Down later this year. Speaking with Swedish journalists, the 73-year-old said: “They’re coming.
Benny continued: “They’re coming this year. I’m guessing after the summer.
“But I can only guess, because I’m not really sure. But I would think so.”
Asked if he could promise 2020, the ABBA star said: “One shouldn’t promise anything but if I were to decide myself, it would be September.
“I can’t make that decision alone. But that’s what we’re aiming for.”

The 74-year-old said: “I mean in our heyday we kind of knew the next single would be played and so forth, but we never knew if it was going to reach Number One, if people would like it.
“It’s easy to forget that there is a before, and in the ‘before’ you don’t know. You take a risk and that’s what I still do.”
Meanwhile, Björn is open to the possibility of Mamma Mia 3 becoming a reality.
He said: “I doubt that very much, but I probably said after the first film that there won’t be a second.”
