2016 has been a lackluster year for ABBA releases. It is rumored but not confirm
ed that four  vinyl singles will be issued for the Arrival album's 40th anniversary.  Benny has produced an album by the Swedish all women folk group, Systerpolkan. The group features three nyckelharpa players and four fiddlers.The group most noted member is  renowned Swedish musician, Lena Willemark. It has been announced that Benny Andersson will record a solo  album of him playing piano, that will probably be released in Spring 2017.
A vinyl reissue of Frida's Djupa Andetag has been put on hold.  But it is confirmed that Frida is working with a Spanish musician on one song that will be released next year.

ABBa appear together -but only Agnetha and Frida sing at party for Bjorn and Benny...

ABBa appear together at  a "private "party for Bjorn and Benny...Frida and Agnetha sang "The Way old Friends Do". The occasion was the 50th anniversary of Benny and Bjorn meeting.
Many new reports about the event were inaccurate making it out to be more of a musical reunion of the whole group-which it was not.  Many reports also  falsely claimed the song  sung was "Me and I".
