Cher will release “Dancing Queen,” a new album of Abba covers, on September 28, Warner Bros. Records announced today.

The singer and actress — who has won Oscar, Emmy and Grammy Awards — was inspired to record the album following her performance in the recently-released hit film, “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” according to the announcement.

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

The album was recorded and produced in London and Los Angeles with Cher’s longtime collaborator Mark Taylor, who previously produced Cher’s global hit single “Believe.” The tracklist appears below.

Cher is scheduled to be awarded a Kennedy Center Honor on December 2 in Washington DC. She is also a co-producer of the “The Cher Show,” the upcoming Broadway musical opening on December 3, and will be touring Australia and New Zealand in September. She is currently performing a residency at MGM Resorts in Las Vegas.

“Dancing Queen” tracklisting:

1. Dancing Queen
2. Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)
3. The Name Of The Game
4. SOS
5. Waterloo
6. Mamma Mia
7. Chiquitita
8. Fernando
9. The Winner Takes It All
10. One Of Us

So basicly 10 of their biggest hits. I was expecting more when it comes to the setlist. Even a-teens did our last summer on their cover album. Ginmie sounds awful to be honest

She should do like a home shopping channel/QVC collaboration like gaga and tony did with cheek 2 cheek to help shift more copies of the album. That would be a good way to sell more physicals.
Most listened to albums at the moment:
Christina Aguilera - Liberation
Lily Allen - No Shame
Kali Uchis - Isolation

^that's a good idea! I hope WBR has a promotion plan for this, the ticket bundle when she tours the US will help too!

^Really? I mean Cher is only 72 with a 53 years long career and millions of $s, what ever will she do if her 26th album is not a huge hit lol?!

Seriously, dude. I guess it depends what are your expectations. People said her previous album won't sell more than 200k, and it ended up selling 600k and picking up a few certs. We shall see, but her fans are happy just because this album is happening!

This project is such a smart move on her behalf. What a way to capitalise on “Mamma Mia!” And all the ABBA crazyness around it everywhere. Plus, with her tour, Vegas shows and the Cher musical debuting later this year, the album will just keep on selling. Not bad at all- she’ll do well chart-wise with this album- and single, even.
