Pop icon Cher’s highly anticipated ABBA covers album has a cover, a release date and a highly appropriate name… ‘Dancing Queen’.
Though we’ve already heard Cher warbling ‘Fernando’ as part of the latest ‘Mamma Mia’ movie, there’ll be plenty more Cher ABBA covers to come; the album due to land at retailers everywhere at the end of next month.
“I’ve always liked ABBA and saw the original ‘Mamma Mia’ musical on Broadway three times,” Cher explains. “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.”
Though its contents are still under wraps for the moment, the lead single ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)’ is released today.
It was recored and produced alongside Mark Taylor, who Cher’s worked with on numerous occasions in the past on her albums ‘Believe’, ‘Living Proof’ and ‘Closer To The Truth’.
