A photo posted on the Instagram account of ABBA reveals that the pop group is back in the studio and recording new music, as reported by NME.

ABBA, who announced a surprise reunion earlier this year, is set to present two new songs – one of which is titled "I Still Have Faith In You" – on television in November this year.

“Frida, Agnetha, Björn and Benny in RMV Studio Stockholm, recording the two new songs! Release end of this year.” reads the caption underneath photos of the foursome in the studio.

"Mamma Mia! Here we go again": Sweden's legendary disco group ABBA announced in April, according to AFP that they have reunited to record two new songs, 35 years after their last single, sparking joy and surprise among fans. 

"We all four felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did," the group said in a statement after repeatedly vowing they would never reunite. 

The new songs "I Still Have Faith In You" and "Don't Shut Me Down" were recorded last summer, the band's manager Gorel Hanser told TT news agency. 

The quartet split up in 1982 after dominating the disco scene for more than a decade with hits like "Waterloo", "Dancing Queen", "Mamma Mia" and "Super Trouper".

"It was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!" members Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad and Benny Andersson added. 

The group, which sold more than 400 million albums, have not sung together publicly since 1986.
