The minute Cher released her cover of ABBA’s Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” yesterday it was only a matter of hours before it got mashed up with Madonna’s Hung Up, which samples the song.
Toronto-based singer Alex Simpson went for it and the result is pretty seamless.
Gimme! Gimme! Gimee! is the first release from Cher’s forthcoming ABBA covers album, due Sept. 28. The icon, who appears in the Mamma Mia! sequel, showed her love for the group,
“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.”
