The living legend promises to deliver us the pure fun we desperately need.
Music tends to reflect the time it's released in, and thus the current offerings dominating the Billboard Hot 100 seem to be divisive, unoriginal, and a little melancholy.
Pop icon Cher is back to once again shake things up with what may possibly be her most fun album in decades, Dancing Queen. Produced by "Believe" producer Mark Taylor, Cher's 10-track collection of ABBA covers is all-killer, no filler; each of the songs she picked can be found on the Swedish pop group's iconic ABBA Gold: Greatest Hits LP.
Cher's first Dancing Queen single, "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)" is already evidence enough that the Goddess of Pop wants the album to be a dancefloor-ready escape from the hard times we're living in.
Indeed the ABBA resurgence is in full swing after the global success of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, the announcement of this Cher LP, and the fact that ABBA is releasing two new songs at the end of 2018.
While I can't wait to hear Dancing Queen, the album's digital and CD release date of September 28 is not too far away. And while vinyl details are scarce, the wax edition is listed for pre-order on Amazon with a release date of November 6.
