Pop legends Abba have surprised and delighted fans by announcing their first studio album for 40 years.

Abba Voyage will be released in November, before a "revolutionary" set of concerts where virtual avatars will play hits like Mamma Mia and Waterloo.

The quartet, who split up in 1982, said they ended up back in the recording studio while working on the stage show.

"At first it was just two songs, and then we said, 'Well, maybe we should do a few others,'" said Benny Andersson.

In the end, they recorded 10 tracks - two of which were premiered during a globally-streamed press conference on Thursday.

I'm not ashamed to confess being an Abba fan.  ;D  Their music was second to none and I would have loved to see them live.

I like them more now than I did in their heyday, especially when compared to most of the electronic manufactured drivel bring produced these days, and I like the two new tracks, particularly I Still Have Faith In You.
