Listen up, ABBA fans, the iconic Swedish band is prepping the release of brand-new music after 35 years.

On Friday (April 27), the group, which includes Björn Ulvaeus, Agnetha Fältsko, Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad, made the big announcement via a statement.

"The decision to go ahead with the exciting ABBA avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence," the band said via Instagram. "We all 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 we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!"

Their studio time resulted in two new songs, one of them being titled "I Still Have Faith in You." It'll be performed by their digital avatars in an upcoming two-hour NBC/BBC special set to air in December. "We may have come of age, but the song is new. And it feels good," they continued.

ABBA, of course, have been around for decades and are most known for their 1977 chart-topper, "Dancing Queen." Despite receiving pretty penny offers throughout the years, the foursome has passed on a number of reunion proposals but did come together in 2016 to perform at a private event in Stockholm. Read their announcement in full below!
