I'm genuinely shocked by how beautiful and moving I've found both of these new songs, and I've never really considered myself a huge Abba fan. I will definitely buy their album on the strength of these two songs, which are two of the best pop songs I've heard in years.


And what about Fallinlove2nite?

.

How do climate change, hurricanes, terrorism and the taliban impact your life?

I must assume you live tn the USSA.

In such case climate change does not matter much:

No permanently flooded coastal zones yet.

Simply prepare for 1.5 meter rise in levels.

.

Against hurricanes one should not build homes in their path and if one cannot avoid to do so one should reread the story of the three piggies. (build in brick...)

.

Terrorism?

It is all fed by the money going to the military-industrial complex.

Which is based in fiat money.

.

Kabul not being your residence there is no impact at all by the rule of Afghanistan on your life, except perhaps ifyou were bringing 'democracy' there and were evacuated.

.

COVID? A mega-dose of vitamin C can cure it.

Why the censorship on first line medications?

.

Lockdowns do not work. They do not fix anything.

.

And then there is abba. Why now?

I do not see a reason.

Pills and thrills and daffodils will kill... If you don't believe me or don't get it, I don't have time to try to convince you, sorry.

Why release Sign O The Times SDE last year? Why then? I don't see how 2020 had anything to do with the album.

And why did Janet release Rhythm Nation 1814 in 1989? That's weird. I don't see any correlation.

Don't even get me started with Purple Rain Deluxe being released when it finally came out.

They still look pretty good after all these years. Guessing they are doing some kind a green screen shooting session

All on this livestream: https://www.youtube.com/w...JBGk9Hed8o

I like my synthpoppy ABBA, and was underwhelmed by the new ballad song (I Still Have Faith In You), but the other one was good (Don't Shut Me Down), very 80s inspired smile, and I'm looking forward to what else may be coming.

Just heard both tracks and liked them both thumbs up!

As noted, it's motion capture. A company is replicating younger versions of themselves that move the way the band did while filming the songs. (Think the way they made Avatar.)
