In a statement, the singer said, "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 pop diva has been teasing fans with snippets of what they can expect. Her cover of 'Fernando' in the film Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again was well-received by critics.
After covering the song in the film, the 72 year old singer felt inspired to write a whole album of covers.
Cher also spoke out about the challenges she faced when recording the album, "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 released a snippet of the cover, 'Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)' last night on her Twitter:
