In July, Cher announced that she would soon be releasing a compilation of Abba cover versions, as she was promoting the film “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”, where she plays Ruby, the mother of Donna Sheridan (Meryl Streep).
Having revealed the track list for this latest opus, the “Strong Enough” singer shared a short excerpt of “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” via Twitter.
The new album will give fans of the Goddess of Pop as well as Abba lovers a chance to rediscover some of the Swedish group’s most popular tracks including “Waterloo,” “Mamma Mia,” and “Dancing Queen.” It does not, however, include the popular song “Fernando,” which Cher performs with Andy Garcia in the follow-up to “Mamma Mia.”
The release date for the album has not yet been disclosed.
Cher rose to fame in the 1960s performing the massive hit “I Got You Babe” in a duo with her husband Sonny Bono. Thereafter she became a global star as a solo performer. She combines a musical career — in which she has sold more than 100 million albums — with a remarkable career as an actress. Her performances in films have won her an Oscar and a best actress award at Cannes.
