ABBA may return, says band member

Berlin, April 24 (IANS/EFE) Agnetha Faltskog, a member of legendary Swedish pop group ABBA, said in an interview published by the German press that she had not ruled out the possibility of reuniting the band’s members for a concert.

“Perhaps a charity concert? I, at least, would not rule it out,” the singer told Zeitgamazin, the magazine of the weekly Die Zeit.

Faltskog is promoting her new solo album, “A”, whose title was inspired by the fact that she was “one of the ‘As’ in ABBA”.

The singer said she enjoyed listening to old ABBA hits, such as “The Winner Takes It All”.

ABBA, formed by Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, broke up in 1982 after years of cranking out hits.

The band’s members have ruled out a reunion for years.

Ulvaeus and Andersson, however, have worked together on other projects, including “Mamma Mia”, the hit musical and film, and the anthem for the 2013 Eurovision Festival, which will be held May 14-18 in Malmo, Sweden.

“We Write the Story”, the title of the song by Andersson and Ulvaeus, features an arrangement by Swedish producer and DJ Avicii, and will be performed for the first time during the festival’s May 18 grand finale.
