Cher releases 'Dancing Queen'

Posted at October 1st, 2018 | by Shank | in Entertainment, Featured, Music, News

The hit American Singer Cher has released her 26th album, Dancing Queen. The album contains cover versions of songs recorded by Swedish pop group ABBA, with the title referencing their 1976 song Dancing Queen. The album follows Cher’s appearance in the 2018 musical film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, based on the music of ABBA.

Both Cher and ABBA have lived several lives in the decades since they first arrived, so maybe it was only a matter of time before they found each other. As both Seventies megastars experience public “revivals” of sorts (the blockbuster jukebox musical Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again‘s  success), the idea of the bawdy, no-nonsense, always-evolving Cher tackling the emotional kitsch of ABBA seems only apt.

 

The Album

Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)SOS and Mamma Mia are given just enough of a knob turn that they’re transformed from upbeat FM radio pop into club bangers, pulsating with every beat.

One of Us in particular sees the biggest musical shift of any of the songs; the original is a breezy, tropical, mid-tempo pop moment that almost disguises the sadness of the lyrics. But Cher strips it down to strings, piano and vocals, making sure you can feel every bit of the ego-shedding on the track.

Though she covers an incredibly expansive representation of the band in only 10 songs, she is not one to disappoint.  Cher, a pop diva who most continuously blows past expectations and never gives you the same outcome twice, has done it again.

 

Give the album a listen below:
