Swedish pop legends ABBA received their first Grammy nomination with the announcement of the contenders for next year’s prestigious music prizes in Los Angeles, California.

This is their first since the iconic group began performing together 48 years ago.

The band is on a second wave of success and popularity at the moment, 40 years after the release of their previous album in 1981.

Their ninth and final studio album VOYAGE has been breaking records since its release on November 5th this year.

The nomination is for their comeback single, ” I Still Have Faith In You “, with which they will compete in the category Record of the Year, early next year.

ABBA’s only Grammy’s recognition until now was to be inducted into the American Recording Academy’s Hall of Fame in 2015.
