This past Monday on the “Today” show, Cher announced that she will be releasing an album of ABBA covers, which is about the only bit of good news in the media this past week.
The mononymous icon is playing Ruby Sheridan, Meryl Streep’s mother in the upcoming Mamma Mia! sequel, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, which hits theaters this Friday.
“After I did ’Fernando’ [in the film] I thought it would really be fun to do an album of ABBA songs,” the legendary singer told "Today" host Kathie Lee Gifford, “So I did.”
“It’s not what you think of when you think ABBA, because I did it in a different way,” Cher continued.
While there’s no official release date for the upcoming album, just a few weeks ago, Cher tweeted that she thinks her new album will be released in September.
Think album will be out in sept.
