ABBA fans will know the Swedish pop supergroup are set to make a comeback, with new music on the way.

And now Björn Ulvaeus has shared an update on their soon-to-be-released songs in a new interview.

Speaking to English journalist Geoff Lloyd, the legendary musician confirmed their five new tracks will now be released in 2021 after being delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Following the interview, Geoff said: "They've recorded five new songs. Because of technical difficulties and the pandemic, it's delayed things.

"But he promised me that the new ABBA music will be out in 2021."

ABBA's new song titled 'I Still Have Faith In You' was due to premiere on the BBC in December 2018. It was then to be followed up by the release of another new song called 'Don't Shut Me Down', but neither surfaced.

Previously, the 75-year-old was asked what it was like to be back in the studio with the rest of ABBA after 35 years.

He replied: "Oh, that was so great.

"It took half a minute and somehow we were back in time like we had been there yesterday as well. It was so strange."

He continued: "It felt so familiar, to be there the four of us - looking different, of course, but feeling the same. And feeling those strong bonds and knowing we had gone through so much together.

"That feeling between us was extraordinary."
