For the first time in 40 years, ABPA returns to the top 10 in the UK, with two new songs from their upcoming album Voyage.
“I Still Half Faith NU” and “Don’t Chat Me Down” ranked sixth and seventh, respectively, in the UK, according to estimates released on Sunday in terms of initial sales and streaming. The official classification is expected to be released on Friday.
The rating agency said: “If this trend continues, both songs will be ABBA’s top two songs in the UK’s first one in December 1981.”
“I Still Have Faith NU” has become a bestseller in CD and vinyl format, while “Don’t Chat Me Down” has become the most downloaded song in the UK, with both songs being streamed over 500,000 times so far.
Both new creations were taken from the famous Swedish band’s first studio album, Voyage, after “The Physizers” in 1981.
The new album was unveiled during an event in London on Thursday. “Journey” includes reset versions of 10 songs, 8 new and two, “Just a Nation” and “Bumblebee”.
The album is expected to release on November 5th.
The announcement reflected the band’s expected returns, breaking its contract and “Jimmy! Jimmy! Jimmy!” Thanks for the songs like. Money, money.
ABBA will launch a new theatrical production in East London next May at a specially-prepared 3,000-seat theater. The show features 22 songs played over an hour and a half and holograms of four young singers.
