Unreleased ABBA track on new album

Posted:

STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Mamma Mia, here they go again.

ABBA fans will soon again be saying "Thank you for the music" with the release of a new track on a special edition of the disbanded 70's pop group's "The Visitors" album.

The album, including new track "From a Twinkling Star to a Passing Angel," is the first official new release by the Swedish group in 18 years.

Universal Music Group spokeswoman Mia Segolsson said Friday that the special edition of "The Visitors" -- originally released in 1981 -- will be available in stores from April 23.

ABBA -- Agnetha Faeltskog, Benny Andersson, Bjoern Ulvaeus and Anni-Frid Lyngstad -- split in 1982. The band has never reunited.

Known for catchy hits in the 70s and 80s -- such as "Dancing Queen," `'Money, Money, Money" -- ABBA have sold 400 million records worldwide.
