Cher released a trailer for the lead single, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) off of the Queen cover album titled Dancing Queen. The album releases on September 28.
The 72 year old was inspired to record this album after her performance in Universal Pictures’ recently released Mamma Mia Here We Go Again. She released a teaser for the lead single Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) last night.
She told E!, “I’ve always liked ABBA and saw the original Mamma Mia musical on Broadway three times. 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 music came out. I’m really excited for people to hear it. It’s a perfect time.”
She also took to Twitter to answer a question from a fan about the album.
On Thursday, Warner Bros. Records also confirmed the track listing for the new album. The listing is as follows: Dancing Queen, Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight), The Name of the Game, SOS, Waterloo, Mamma Mia, Chiquitita, Fernando, The Winner Takes It All, and One of Us.
The singer revealed that she was working on the album in an interview with Today. She said that after recording Fernando with co-star Andy Garcia, “I thought it would really be fun to do an album of ABBA songs. So, I did! It’s not what you think of when you think ‘ABBA,’ because I did it in a different way.”
