This year has been full of ABBA, and we love it! The record label in charge of the hit movie Mamma Mia! Here we go again, has listened to the demand from the public, and has announced Cher will be releasing a Mamma Mia cover album! This fantastic record is set to be released in September and be couldn't be more excited after her excellent role in the recent movie.
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. Says Cher
Cher knows what we want as well, with a killer list of covers, including:
1. "Dancing Queen"
2. "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)"
3. "The Name Of The Game"
6. "Mamma Mia"
9. "The Winner Takes It All"
10. "One Of Us"
Cher's appearance in Mamma Mia was incredible as we saw her play Sophie's (Amanda Seyfried) estranged grandmother, Ruby Sheridan. Her fantastic voice was loved during her part in the "Fernando" duet with Andy Garcia, a standout moment.
After I did "Fernando," I thought it would really be fun to do an album of ABBA songs, so I did, Cher explained on The Today Show.
The 72-year-old is like no other, with an Oscar, Emmy, and Grammy awards. We think maybe her role in Mamma Mia will earn her even more honours! This woman is unstoppable.
