The Oscar, Emmy and Grammy Award winner says she was inspired to record the album following her performance in hit film, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.
"I've always liked ABBA and saw the original Mamma Mia musical on Broadway three times. 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?'" she said.
"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."
Dancing Queen was recorded and produced in London and Los Angeles with Cher’s long-time collaborator Mark Taylor, who previously produced Cher's global hit Believe, which was number one in over 50 countries.
Cher, who is currently performing a residency at MGM Resorts, is scheduled to be awarded a Kennedy Center Honor on December 2nd in Washington DC.
She is a co-producer of the The Cher Show, the upcoming Broadway musical opening on December 3 and will be touring Australia and New Zealand in September.
