Cher to release album of Abba covers

By | Published on Friday 10 August 2018


Cher is capitalising on her appearance in the new ‘Mamma Mia’ movie sequel by releasing a new album of Abba covers. Titled ‘Dancing Queen’, the record will be out on 28 Sep, with her version of ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’ available now.

“I’ve always liked Abba and saw the original ‘Mamma Mia’ musical on Broadway three times”, says Cher. “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”.

Other Abba songs to get the Cher treatment on the record include ‘Waterloo’, ‘SOS’, ‘Mamma Mia’, and of course ‘Dancing Queen’.
