The members of ABBA will reunite for a new form of digital "entertainment experience" next year.

The iconic Swedish pop band made the announcement Wednesday, but didn't offer much detail. They said they would be teaming up with Universal Music Group and entertainment mogul Simon Fuller ("American Idol," Spice Girls) to "create an original entertainment experience ... that will enable a new generation of fans to see, hear and feel ABBA in a way previously unimagined."

ABBA consists of Benny Andersson, Agnetha Faltskog, Bjorn Ulvaeus and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. They formed in Stockholm in 1972 and last performed together 35 years ago. The four members made a rare joint appearance in January for the opening of a Stockholm restaurant inspired by the "Mamma Mia!" musical.

ABBA's hits include "Dancing Queen" and "Take a Chance on Me."
