ABBA, the band that dominated the disco world for more than 10 years, announced their reunion on Friday. They will record two new singles for the first time in 35 years.

The group split in 1982, saying that they would never reunite. In 2008, Bjorn Ulvaeus dismissed the rumors about the reunion:

There is simply no motivation to regroup. Money is not a factor and we would like people to remember us as we were.

But, as they say, never say never!

The band released a joint statement on social media, which pronounced:

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.

ABBA will perform one of their new songs, "I Still Have Faith In You," on the TV special produced by NBC. The song is set to debut in December.

The band members - Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus, Anni-Frid Lyngstad, and Benny Andersson - added:

It was like time had stood still and that we only had been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience!

The loyal ABBA's fans took to Twitter to share their excitement:

The band was famous for their hits “Mamma Mia,” “Dancing Queen,” “The Winner Takes It All,” “Waterloo,” “Happy New Year,” and many more, as well as their outrageous glitzy outfits.

The band’s popularity continued even after their split. Their hit songs were revived in a 2008 musical “Mamma Mia” starring Meryl Streep.
