Cher Says She’s Done An Entire Album Of ABBA Covers

Cher in a still from musical sequel Mamma Mia Here We Go Again

Cher has revealed she’s recorded an entire album of ABBA covers, after performing the group’s classic ‘Fernando’ for the Mamma Mia sequel.

“After I did ‘Fernando,’ I thought it would really be fun to do an album of ABBA songs, so I did,” she told US Today Show host Kathie Lee Gifford.

But she teased that the project is “not what you think of when you think ABBA, ’cause I did it in a different way.”

Cher is appearing alongside Meryl Streep and Amanda Seyfried in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, a sequel to the 2008 musical film.

The singer will be playing Sophie’s previously unseen grandmother Ruby Sheridan, Meryl Streep’s character’s mean mother.

This September and October, Cher will be bringing her Here We Go Again Tour to arenas in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle, Adelaide and Perth.

The tour will kick off at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Wednesday September 26, before shows at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on September 28, the Rod Laver Arena on October 3, the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on October 9 and Perth Arena on October 12. The tour will wrap up at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney on October 18.

Tickets are available from Live Nation.
