    Pop group Abba have returned to the studio to record their first new music since the 1980s.

    The Swedish quartet said the new material was an "unexpected consequence" of their recent decision to put together a "virtual reality" tour.

    "We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the studio," the band said on Instagram.

    "And it was like time stood still."

    No release date has been set for the new songs - but one of them, titled I Still Have Faith In You, will be performed in December on a TV special broadcast by the BBC and NBC.

    Abba's spokesperson Gorel Hanser described the new songs, saying: "The sound will be familiar, but also modern."

    The studio sessions were "like old times", she told Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

    "Easy as anything. It didn't feel weird that they hadn't been in the studio together for 35 years."

    But Hanser said the group would not perform live, other than as holograms in the forthcoming Abba Avatar tour.

    "No, you can not expect them to join forces on stage again," she said. "They will not do that."

    The band have resisted pressure to reform since they stopped recording together in 1982, despite a reported $1bn (689m) offer for to tour in 2000.

    In an interview with the BBC in 2013, Agnetha Faltskog said she preferred to leave the band in the past.

    "It was such a long time ago, and we are getting older, and we have our different lives," she explained.

    News of the new material comes in a bumper year for Abba fans. An immersive exhibition based on the band's career is running on London's South Bank, while Chess, the musical Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson wrote with Sir Tim Rice, is being revived in the West End.

    I don't think there's a Tool thread, so I'll just toss this here:

    This is a hell of a way to get an update, but it is what it is (which is: random bits of Tool news sprinkled throughout a 10:32 video).

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVoWPLCxjv4

    Highlights:
    - new album has 6 or 7 songs, each of which is over 10 minutes long
    - "each song is almost like a full album, in regards to how much they've packed into it, so someone could still get the full album experience by listening to just one song"
    - they consider it their best
    - the drums are done, the bass is half-done, the guitar will be done after that, and the vocals last
    - one song is the heaviest they've ever written and the vocals were even more intense than those on Ticks & Leeches (but then I thought the vocals weren't yet recorded? don't ask me)
    - all artwork will be done after recording is complete

    No release date was mentioned or guessed at...but someone said a band member this month (May 2018 ) said "can you wait 7 months?," which suggests around December.

    By mentioning this December as a tentative release date, of course, I have guaranteed it won't be out before June 2019.

    Sweet! I love MJK! I've seen TOOL three times and A Perfect Circle once. I haven't seen Puscifer but this video did amuse me.
