Esteemed 1970s Swedish pop group ABBA is considering a possible reunion next year, co-singer Agnetha Faltskog told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

"Of course, we are thinking about a reunion," said Agnetha.

April 2014 marks the 40th anniversary of the band's first hit, "Waterloo," which won them the Eurovision song contest and catapulted them to fame, writes Die Welt.

"There are definitely plans to do something aroud this anniversary. But I don't know yet what will come out of this," said the Swedish singer.

She added that it is good that plans are not yet set, as anticipation so long ahead could build up too much emotion in the performers.

The 63-year-old performer admitted that time has affected the four members of the group, who all prefer to go out on stage as long as they are fit to do so.

Faltskog formed ABBA in 1972 with guitarist and songwriter, and later Agnetha's husband, Bjorn Ulvaeus, as well as Benny Andersson and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

After "Waterloo," ABBA became one of the world's best-selling pop bands with a string of number one hits such as "Mamma Mia," "Dancing Queen" and "Money."

The band, whose last album "The Visitors" appeared in 1982, has sold some 380 M records worldwide, making them one of the most successful pop bands in history.
