On the heels of appearing in the film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Againwhich features ABBA songsCher will be releasing Dancing Queen, a new album of all-ABBA hits, on Sept. 28 through Warner Bros. Records.
In a press release, Cher said, "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."
Some of the songs on the album include "SOS," "The Winner Takes It All," "Waterloo," "Mamma Mia" and the title song. Those who pre-order the new album will immediately receive Cher's rendition of the song "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! ( A Man After Midnight )"; visit https://wbr.lnk.to/DancingQueen.
