ABBA's Agnetha Fältskog has hinted the legendary Swedish pop group could reunite for the 40th anniversary of the band's first single 'Waterloo'
Agnetha Fältskog has hinted ABBA could reform next year.
The 63-year-old blonde singer has always been reluctant to work with her bandmates again after their bitter split more than 30 years ago.
But she has now revealed the Swedish pop quartet have discussed a reunion in 2014 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their first single 'Waterloo', which won them the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974.
The 'Mamma Mia' hitmaker told German newspaper Welt Am Sonntag that she has been in talks with bandmates Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson about reforming.
She said: "Of course it's something we're thinking about. There seem to be plans to do something to mark this anniversary in some way. I can't say at this point what will come of them."
Pop legends ABBA formed in 1972 and rose to global fame after releasing their first single, after which a number of hits followed including 'Dancing Queen', 'Money, Money, Money' and 'S.O.S'.
They have sold 380 million records worldwide but split in 1982 when the marriages of Agnetha and Björn and Anni-Frid and Benny ended in divorce.
Agnetha shied away from the spotlight and was rarely seen in public but released her first solo album, 'A', in nine years in 2013 which was well received.
In 2008, Björn and Benny vowed never to reunite the band and reportedly turned down $1 billion to get back together for a world tour.
