ABBA have announced they are set to release new music for the first time in 35 years.

Posting a statement on the official ABBA Instagram account, the band wrote: “The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence. 

“We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did. And it was like time had stood still and that we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!”

    The statement continued: “It resulted in two new songs and one of them ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ will be performed by our digital selves in a TV special produced by NBC and the aimed for broadcasting in December. 

    “We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good.”

    It signed off: “Agnetha, Benny, Bjorn, Anni-Frid – Stockholm, Sweden, 27 April 2018.”

    The group’s manager Gorel Hanser also confirmed the news in a press release. 

    During a speech in Brussels on 25 April, singer Bjorn Ulvaeus, 72, revealed that virtual “Abbatars” are being created to represent the four members of the pop group of the upcoming digital tour, expected for 2019 or 2020. 

    They will be pictured as they looked during the height of their fame, with Ulvaeus saying: “We thought we looked good that year.”

    “They photographed us from all possible angles, they made us grimace in front of cameras, they painted dots on our faces, they measured our heads,” he told broadcasting executives last week. 

    “Apparently a cranium doesn’t change with age the way the rest of your body falls apart.”

    ABBA have sold more than 400 million albums in their careers and have had nine No 1 hits in the UK between 1974 and 1980. Yet they have not performed since 1986, other than a brief appearance at a private party in 2016.

    Snoop Dogg And Eminem Have Hinted At New Music Together With Studio Photograph

    It looks like Eminem and Snoop Dogg could be about to get back in the studio together.

    In the picture shared on Snoop’s Instagram account the pair are stood in a recording studio, with the caption – ‘Detroit. Tommoro. 8 pm. Redemption of a Dogg had to c M. To get the stamp’.

    Could this be a sign that there’s new music to come?

    With the pair having never released a single together apart from Snoop’s appearance on Eminem’s ‘The Marshall Mathers LP’ , on the track ‘Bitch Please II’, die hard fans of them both will definitely be hoping so.

    However, try not to get too excited too soon.

    The chances are that Mathers – who has homes in Michigan – is just going to see the Gin and Juice rapper’s stage show, Redemption of a Dog, which is being shown for the first time tonight.

    The production, which is written and directed by award-winning playwright Je’Caryous Johnson, stars Snoop himself and tells the story of his life. It also marks 25 years since he released his first album Doggystyle.

    According to a press release about the play, it is an ‘urban theatre’ experience that tells the story of a gangsta rapper, family man and man of God.

    It says: “Redemption of a Dogg examines the internal battle one man has between preserving his life-long legacy and losing the love of his life when he is faced with choosing fame and fortune over faith and family.”

    But who knows, fresh from the insane success of his tenth studio album, Kamikaze, which has already gone platinum, maybe Slim is striking while the iron is hot.

    His second album in just a year, it was a surprise to most of his fans and gave him his ninth consecutive number one album – which broke a 36 year UK record, held by Abba and Led Zeppelin.

    And this recent bout of success is no doubt been helped by his long-standing and bitter feud with fellow rapper, Machine Gun Kelly, which seems to have been going forever – at this point I’m not really sure what the deal is.

    Do they like each other, do they not? Do we care? Well, clearly we do, but why?

    Mysterious radio signals from deep space detected – BBC News

    Astronomers have revealed details of mysterious signals emanating from a distant galaxy, picked up by a telescope in Canada.

    The precise nature and origin of the blasts of radio waves is unknown.

    Among the 13 bursts of fast radio waves, known as FRBs, was a very unusual repeating signal, coming from the same source about 1.5 billion light years away.

    Such an event has only been reported once before, by a different telescope.

    “Knowing that there is another suggests that there could be more out there,” said Ingrid Stairs, an astrophysicist from the University of British Columbia (UBC).

    “And with more repeaters and more sources available for study, we may be able to understand these cosmic puzzles – where they’re from and what causes them.”

    The CHIME observatory, located in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley, consists of four 100-metre-long, semi-cylindrical antennas, which scan the entire northern sky each day.

    The telescope only got up and running last year, detecting 13 of the radio bursts almost immediately, including the repeater.

    More stories you might like:

    The research has now been published in the journal Nature.

    “We have discovered a second repeater and its properties are very similar to the first repeater,” said Shriharsh Tendulkar of McGill University, Canada.

    “This tells us more about the properties of repeaters as a population.”

    FRBs are short, bright flashes of radio waves, which appear to be coming from almost halfway across the Universe.

    So far, scientists have detected about 60 single fast radio bursts and two that repeat. They believe there could be as many as a thousand FRBs in the sky every day.

    There are a number of theories about what could be causing them.

    They include a neutron star with a very strong magnetic field that is spinning very rapidly, two neutron stars merging together, and, among a minority of observers, some form of alien spaceship.

    6 Absolutely Godawful Follow-Ups To Hit Novelty Songs

    Having your novelty song go big is bittersweet. On the one hand, you’ve secured your legacy. On the other hand, your legacy kind of sucks, and you probably won’t even be able to cash in on it for very long. So it’s no wonder that most bands follow up a novelty breakthrough with some weird, embarrassing, desperate stuff. Such as how …

    Remember “Snoopy vs. The Red Baron”? Next Came “Snoopy vs. Osama”

    The Royal Guardsmen never intended “Snoopy vs. The Red Baron” to be their signature song, but when a music executive showed up at one of their gigs asking them to lay down an inexplicable ditty about Charlie Brown’s dog battling WWI German flying ace Manfred von Richtofen, the band figured “Screw it, it’s a record deal.” After the song became a surprise hit, they found themselves reluctantly running a cottage industry of pop tunes about Snoopy. The devil always comes to collect.

    Continue Reading Below

    The Royal Guardsmen’s Snoopy catalog includes a Christmas ballad, a song which sends Snoopy to the moon, and a concept album about Snoopy’s presidential campaign that had to be hastily edited after Bobby Kennedy was assassinated. That’s not a joke. But the band hit peak weirdness 40 years after their initial success with the release of “Snoopy vs. Osama.”

    If the title alone doesn’t tell you everything you need to know, we will elaborate. Snoopy and Charlie Brown enlist in the military and hunt down Osama bin Laden by any means necessary. We know what you’re wondering: Is there a verse wherein Charlie Brown is gravely wounded by a roadside bomb, leaving Snoopy to gun down the architect of 9/11 on a solo mission? Yes, of course there is. Please don’t ask stupid questions, hypothetical reader.

    Continue Reading Below

    Even though bin Laden is reviled as one of our century’s greatest monsters, it’s hard not to be creeped out by lines like Snoopy smiled and aimed and he fired his gun / “Take this, bin Laden, now you won’t have to run.”

    You’re fucking next, Shermy.

    The “Monster Mash” Guy Loved Monsters, Hated Climate Change

    For most people, “Monster Mash” is nothing but a silly little song about a bunch of old-timey movie monsters who set aside their differences for one night in order to get fully lit. You know, like human Halloween. For the guy who wrote it, though, “Monster Mash” was a way of life. Unlike some artists, who resent being pigeonholed, Bobby “Boris” Pickett cheerfully stuck with his schtick for much of his career. He produced new “Mash” rehashes sporadically for four decades, including a full-length Monster Mash album which followed the adventures of Dracula, Igor, the Wolfman, and all of their ghoulish cronies.
