In a flurry of huge news, Benny and Bjorn confirmed there is an entire album of new music: “The album is in the can. If we were not proud of it we would not have released it. There is a proverb in the music industry. You should not wait more than 40 years between albums…” It will be released on November 5 and the stars added there is also “a little Christmas song.” Benny said: “First there were just two songs and then we thought maybe we should do some more and said, ‘What do you think girls?’ And then we did a new album.” SCROLL DOWN TO WATCH HOW THEY CREATED THEIR DIGITAL ABBATARS
Bjorn said: “We never looked at the charts. We just wrote the best songs we could.”.. Writing songs is our lifeblood.”
Benny said: “We are not competing with Drake and all these guys. I don’t understand what the ingredients that work today are… We’ve done as good as we could at our age!”
Bjorn added: “I just knew it had to be about us. It’s about realising it’s inconceivable to be where we are. To release a new album after 40 years and still be there, best of friends and enjoying each other’s company,.. who has experienced that? Nobody.”
They also opened up about the extraordinary technology involved in creating these new ‘digital versions’ of themselves for the upcoming shows next year.

Benny previously described how Pop Idol supremo Simon Fuller had come to the band with the original idea.
Benny said: “He came to Stockholm and he presented this idea to us that we could make identical digital copies of ourselves of a certain age and that those copies could then go on tour and they could sing our songs, you know, and lip-sync.
“I’ve seen this project half-way through and it’s already mind-boggling.”
And now the whole world has seen the incredible results.
