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 musiame 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

The 10th track, to be recorded in London next month, is supposedly a colaboration with all ABBA members.

Her voice on Fernando is great, hope to hear the proper solo version soon.

I would much rather prefer a new album instead of covers. Closer to the Truth was one of her best.

Not enthused about this. I hope she's recording original material as well.

“Fernando” sounds amazing!

I wonder if her versions of “Fernando” and “Super Trouper” will count as bonus tracks or as part of the regular tracklist.

The album should be titled DANCING QUEEN, IMO.

One UK date and it's in Newcastle? Random!

God knows how Cher is gonna match the pitch of Agnetha and Frida but it could be interesting.

ABBA's songs are perfectly sung, so it's always a disappointement when someone else sings them, even if it's a great singer like Cher.

If there's one legend that can do them justice, it's the mighty (C)her. 8-)

Cher will make these songs her own, just like she did with Fernando. ABBA girls are good but Cher can take it to a new level with her voice.

Anyway, Closer to the Truth was great and I bet she will make an original album down the road, but when you’re certain age it’s always more common to do covers. At least she’s not covering Christmas songs, old standards etc that every artist of her generation is doing.
