Cher revealed plans to release an ABBA cover album

On the heels of her appearance in “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again,” Cher has announced that she’s already recorded an ABBA cover album. “After I did ‘Fernando’ [in the movie], I thought it would really be fun to do an album of ABBA songs,” Cher said in her interview with Kathie Lee Gifford on The Today Show. “So I did.” Cher also noted that her decision to do the Mamma Mia sequel was influenced by her love of the original. “I was a huge fan,” she said. “I saw the musical on Broadway three times and was dancing in the aisles with everybody.” Here are some clips from the new movie where you can hear bits of Cher’s now-famous rendition of the ABBA classic “Fernando”:
