ABBA joins TikTok and hints at new music
“Thanks for waiting, the journey is about to begin.” Is ABBA about to release new music?
ABBA joined TikTok with a video of Benny Andersson playing a slow piano version of their hit song Dancing Queen. And in the two days since posting, they’ve amassed a million likes and nearly half a million followers.
The stripped-down song has already had over 5 million views, sending fans into a frenzy of fun.
The comments on the post are almost more entertaining than the video, with TikTok posting their own happiness to the Swedish pop supergroup joining the platform and also responding to fan comments.

The group has since released three more videos, including a clip from the original Dancing Queen music video and a tour of their studio.
But it’s the second video that makes everyone believe the new music is from the band. The video shows the date 2.9.2021 with the caption: “Thanks for waiting, the journey is about to begin. Agnetha, Björn, Benny, Anni-Frid.
Obviously, they’re announcing some exciting news and their TikTok profile has a link to abbavoyage.com where people can sign up to be the first to know about the announcement.
ABBA’s last single Under Attack was released in 1982, so it’s been a long wait for new music!
