Cher's New Album of ABBA Covers Will Have You Saying "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme"
Sometimes, every now and then, we receive a pop culture gift that is just so perfect, we can't believe we never thought to ask for it before. In this case, Cher, who briefly appears in the Mamma Mia! sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, and belts out ABBA hits like "Fernando," is taking her love of the Swedish band's music to the next level. After sharing a series of cryptic tweets with her Twitter followers over the last few weeks, Cher confirmed that an album of ABBA covers, aptly titled Dancing Queen, is on the way.
"I've always liked ABBA and saw the original Mamma Mia musical on Broadway three times," Cher said. "After filming Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, I was reminded again of what great and timeless songs they wrote and started thinking 'Why not do an album of their music?' The songs were harder to sing than I imagined but I'm so happy with how the music came out. I'm really excited for people to hear it. It's a perfect time."
The album will drop on Sept. 28 via Warner Bros. Records and was produced by the 72-year-old's longtime collaborator Mark Taylor, who's responsible for Cher singles like "Believe." Check out the track list below, then hear a preview of what's to come ahead!
