Yesterday, 72-year-old living legend Cher tweeted out a tease of the first single, a cover of ABBA’s 1979 tune, “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” from her upcoming ABBA covers album. And of course it’s FAAAAAABULOUS! An instant gay anthem!
“I’ve always liked ABBA and saw the original Mamma Mia musical on Broadway three times,” Cher said in a statement. “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.”
Listen to it below.
