the swedish pop group other have released their first album in almost 40 years, called voyage and next year there will be a concert in london but the group will not appear in person. there will be digital versions of the stars instead, their own version of avatars. colin paterson has been getting to know them. benny and bjorn in abba's home town. the good thing about living in stockholm is that people don't bother you. not in the �*70s, not in the �*80s, not now. they come up now and they're all happy and say, "wow, i'm so happy that you made a couple of new songs." # promise me you can... the idea of making a whole album was not part of the original plan. abba had only gone back into the studio to record a couple of new tracks for next year's live show, which will feature digital
