ABBA have teased some big news coming later this week – see the clip below.

The Swedish pop giants have officially offered up their catalogue to the TikTok community after becoming the most-searched-for group without a dedicated profile.

According to a press release (via Billboard), the group’s music was the most requested from an act without an official account on the platform.

It comes after ABBA appeared to tease their long-awaited return with a cryptic social media post last week.

Last Thursday (August 26), ABBA launched a new social media channel to tease a forthcoming new project called Voyage.

The post features new black-and-gold official artwork, which presents the same “02.09.21” date. In the caption, fans were directed to sign up at a new website “to be the first in line to hear more about ABBA Voyage”.

Paul Houricanin, TikTok’s head of music operations, said in a statement: “We are so excited to welcome Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid to TikTok, bringing their phenomenal music to fans both new and old around the world.”

The Swedish pop icons announced back in 2018 that they were set to release their first new material in 35 years. With fans continuing to wait, the group’s Björn Ulvaeus promised earlier this year that they would “definitely” drop music at some point in 2021.
