Cher announced Thursday that she is releasing an ABBA cover album, Dancing Queen, on Sept. 28. The project was inspired by her latest role in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and was recorded and produced in London and Los Angeles with the help of her longtime collaborator Mark Taylor. In a statement, the singer revealed that she's always been a fan of ABBA and the Broadway musical Mamma Mia. "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?'" she said. The album will include hits like "Mamma Mia," "Waterloo," and "The Winner Takes It All."
