Cher Unveils ABBA Covers Album 'Dancing Queen'
Hear her version of "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)" now
Published Aug 09, 2018Following her appearance in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Cher has announced plans to release a full album's worth of ABBA covers. Titled Dancing Queen, it's due out September 28 via Warner Bros. Records.
The 10-song album was recorded in London and Los Angeles with Cher's longtime producer and collaborator Mark Taylor.
"I've always liked ABBA and saw the original Mamma Mia musical on Broadway three times," Cher explained in a press release. "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."
Among the songs getting the cover treatment are "SOS," "Waterloo," "Mamma Mia," "Fernando" and, of course, the title song. See the full tracklisting for Dancing Queen below.
