As you may have heard by now, our most beloved queen Cher has made an ABBA cover album after her phenomenal performance in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again. And now, after many weeks of cheeky tweets and delicious teasers we finally have an official album name and release date.
The beauty is called Dancing Queen and it’s due for release September 28 and it’s already available for pre-order RIGHT NOW.
According to Warner Music Australia, if you pre-order the album you’ll automatically cop Cher’s fabulous rendition of ‘Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)’
You can pre-order the gem, HERE.
Although, if you find yourself in dire need of a banger on this Friday night then look no further. Cher’s already uploaded the full song to her YouTube account and it’s an absolute bop and a half.
Really, the teaser was enough to stoke a fire in my heart but the full cover is just too much.
Of the album, Cher said she’s always liked ABBA and saw the original Mamma Mia! 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.”
How good’s the album art though?
The one and only @cher will be releasing Dancing Queen, a new album of ABBA hits on September 28, pre-order now to immediately receive Cher’s rendition of “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight). Read all the details HERE –https://t.co/Uu4Kj1yAlu pic.twitter.com/5zaIyM7Ufo
