The one and only Cher will be releasing Dancing Queen, a new album of all ABBA hits on September 28 via Warner Bros. Records. The album is available to pre-order now. Watch the tease here!
The Oscar, Emmy and Grammy Award winning icon was inspired to record the album following her stunning performance in the recently-released mega-hit film, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
Cher commented: “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.”
Dancing Queen was recorded and produced in London and Los Angeles with Cher’s long-time collaborator Mark Taylor, who previously produced Cher’s global smash Believe, which was number one in over 50 countries.
Cher is scheduled to be awarded a Kennedy Center Honor on December 2 in Washington DC. She is a co-producer of The Cher Show, the upcoming Broadway musical opening on December 3, and will be touring Australia and New Zealand in September and October. Cher last toured Australia in 2005, when she performed 12 sold-out arena shows as part of her three-year Farewell Tour, which played to more than three million fans worldwide and remains one of the most successful concert tours in history.
