Interesting. Instead of real people playing fake music a la Milli Vanilli, they're going to have fake people playing real music.

I am cautiously awaiting my chance to hear it.

I loved ABBA growing up, but I have their music mentally encapsulated in a certain time frame.

I'm not sure I'd like ABBA with a Lady Gaga or autotune pop sound. Yet, if their sound is just like the '70s, I'm not sure I'd like that either.

I'm a bit torn, but I hope it is good. It has been a long time coming.

I'm looking forward to hearing the new song. Given their ages and how their lives have all changed since they disbanded so long ago, I think a digital tour is a nice way go about it in lieu of appearing in person.

I mean, if you happen to live in Australia, there's always Bjorn Again.

I don't think Bjorn & Benny stopped writing music when the group broke up. So you may already have heard an ABBA song that way and just not known it (feel free to do the research to contradict me. )

Benny & Bjorn wrote the songs for Chess along with Tim Rice, I Know Him So Well sounds very ABBA like.

It's great to hear they are working together again, I never thought they would.

George Foreman will be thrilled! He's a huge ABBA fan.

I don't think they ever thought they would, either.
