She Is The “Dancing Queen”: Cher Reveals Her ABBA Cover Album Track List

By now a number of us have already had the wonderfully cheesy enjoyment of watching Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! (and if you haven’t… what are you waiting for??!). We have sung and danced our way through the covers of many of ABBA’s classic hits, checked out the soundtrack on Spotify and are now looking for more. Thankfully our prayers have been answered and we will soon be belting out tunes to the accompaniment of Cher.

We loved her versions of “Fernando” and “Super Trouper” as Sophie’s (Amanda Seyfried) grandmother in the movie and it appears that we weren’t the only ones to get a kick out it. While doing the press rounds last week for the film, Cher revealed that she so enjoyed being able to put her spin on the classic tracks for the film that she decided to do her own album entirely of ABBA covers. “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!”

In even better news, it seems that we won’t have to wait long for the album to drop. Taking to Twitter yesterday (July 25), Cher revealed that the album is “almost finished” and even admitted that she “think[s] it’s good”.

In addition to that tweet, Cher also tweeted out the track list, though she has left some mystery surrounding the album release only marking track 10 with a question mark emoji.

And yes we know she spelt “Mamma Mia!” wrong in her track list tweet. As did she, later poking fun of herself and correcting the mistake – Yet again Twitter, edit buttons would be such a blessing!

The track list comes as little surprise; these are ABBA’s greatest and most beloved hits. We’ve got “Dancing Queen”, “The Winner Takes It All”, Waterloo”, “SOS” and the aforementioned “Mamma Mia!”. What is surprising is that neither “Fernando” or “Super Trouper” appear. However, perhaps mystery track 10 is actually “Fernando”? Only time will tell.

Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again! is now in theatres.
