Cher to release ABBA covers album Dancing Queen in September

Cher has unveiled the details of her new album Dancing Queen, a collection of ABBA covers.

Released on 28th September 2018 via Warner Bros. Records, Dancing Queen finds the icon putting her own spin on the Swedish sensations’ hits. The album follows Cher’s much talked about appearance in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which opened in cinemas recently.

The lead single from the album is Gimme, Gimme, Gimme (A Man After Midnight). Take a listen below:

Commented Cher, “I’ve always liked Abba and saw the original ‘Mamma Mia’ musical on Broadway three times. 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 was recorded and produced in London and Los Angeles with Cher’s long-term collaborator Mark Taylor.
