1. Attention dancing queens: ABBA is back

Here they go again: ABBA has returned to release new music for the first time in almost 40 years, Variety reports. The Swedish group behind hit songs like "Mamma Mia" will release their new studio album Voyage in November, and they debuted two songs from it on Thursday. Additionally, the group announced a new concert called "ABBA Voyage," in which they'll perform as digital avatars that were designed by George Lucas' visual effects company, Industrial Light & Magic. "ABBA have created the kind of concert they always wanted, performing for their fans at their very best: as digital versions of themselves backed by today's finest musicians," the concert's website explains. While yes, that means the band won't actually be performing live, ABBA touted the experience as the "strangest and most spectacular concert you could ever dream of." Strangest, anyway, checks out.
