Cher Teases Tracklist for Her Album of ABBA Covers

The wait is over and Cher has finally released the tracklist for her album of ABBA covers. She revealed the list last week when she was in Miami and was about to release a press for her upcoming movie “Mamma Mia!: Here We Go Again”.

The singer was so excited about the upcoming movie songs that she broadcasted all the tracks of the album. It looks like the work has almost completed on the ABBA covers as she tweeted the list of tracks on Wednesday. The list includes “SOS”, “Waterloo”, “The Winner Takes It All”, “Mamma Mia”, and “Dancing Queen”. But there was a surprise for the last track as she put a question mark on number 10.

Cher looked excited over the preparation of ABBA as he poked fun at herself on Twitter. A day before posting the list of tracks, the Americans singer tweeted that almost the album is completed and thinks that she has done good work at it. But then said as everyone knows I am not a big fan of Cher.

After that, she made a joke of herself as she posted correct spelling for one of ABBA covers song “Mamma Mia”.

Due to the fact that Cher has appeared in the video song of ABBA, it looks that she is no stranger to the album. When she appeared in the video of the song “Mamma Mia”, she felt a bit nervous to be the part of iconic band song. While giving an interview to EW in a Facebook live session, the singer said that it is always difficult to perform in the songs of famous bands and she was intimidated initially.

She further said that she has a different voice which is much different than the girls. She said that she was worried about Benny Andersson (ABBA songwriter), whether he would like it or not. The singer said that she never wanted to sing it differently but she cannot hide her voice as it is different from others.

Cher released her last album “Closer to the Truth” back in 2013 and that was her 25th album of the career. “Woman’s World” was among the famous songs from that album and the song also topped Hot Dance Club Songs chart in the US. The reason why Cher decided to do all the songs of ABBA cover was her performance of “Fernando” in “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again”. Cher said that she had a lot of fun in the movie and then decided to do all the songs of the album.

While giving an interview to TODAY, the American singer said that after performing “Fernando”, I felt so jubilant that I decided to do all the cover song which will be available from September. In the movie “Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again”, the 72-year-old singer played the role of Amanda Seyfried and in that movie, she changed the song “Fernando” to her own style. The singer posted prayer hand emojis on Twitter and then said that the album will be released in September.
