Nearly four decades after taking break the Swedish pop group ABBA is coming back to stage with a new album named VOYAGE.

ABBA is releasing its first new music on November 5 in four decades after, along with a concert performance that will see the “Dancing Queen” quartet going entirely digital.

ABBA are a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 that consisted of two married couples whose name is an acronym of the first names of its members, Agnetha Fältskog, 71, Björn Ulvaeus,76, Benny Andersson, 75, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, 75.

And a virtual version of the band will begin a series of concerts in London on May 27.

“We took a break in the spring of 1982 and now we’ve decided it’s time to end it,” ABBA said in a statement Thursday. “They say it’s foolhardy to wait more than 40 years between albums, so we’ve recorded a follow-up to ‘The Visitors.’”

Their music has remained ubiquitous in the decades since their breakup, in part because of the stage musical “Mamma Mia!” and the two films that followed it.

They were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010.
