Zoe Ball met with ABBA members Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus ahead of the launch of their new album and revolutionary virtual concert.
The TV presenter and DJ was interviewing the pop legends in front of a live audience at a venue in central London, and later shared a photograph of herself posing with Benny and Bjorn on Instagram.
"Simply the BEST evening with these two gents, absolute legends. thank you Benny & Bjorn. Playing the new @abba single tomo am after 8, & more with Benny on @abbavoyage The Concert & The Album @bbcradio2 #abba #abbavoyage #abbatars #istillhavefaithinyou," Zoe captioned her pictures. "Thanks @amanda.grossman for the magic. can't stop grinning even now."
Benny and Bjorn told Zoe that the new album, which was recorded at the former's home studio in Stockholm, will also feature a new Christmas song.
Their stage show has been created by George Lucas's special effects company, and will be performed in a new arena being constructed in east London.
On why the Swedish group chose London for their virtual show, Benny explained: "Because London is the best city to be in. When it comes to entertainment - theatre, musicals, concerts - it is all here. It has been here for years and years and years. There is a big audience travelling here for that reason. It was a no-brainer.
"We have always felt the Brits see us as their own."
ABBA recently announced their first studio album for 40 years called ABBA Voyage which will be released in November, before their series of concerts where virtual avatars will play hits like Mamma Mia and Waterloo.
The quartet split up in 1982 but returned to the studio to write new music while working on the stage show.
