Get ready to dust off your bedazzled jumpsuit because the first snippet has been released from Cher’s upcoming collection of ABBA covers and we have chills.
The pop icon shared a 40-second clip of her version of the classic track, “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight),” and we can’t wait to boogie down to this on the dance floor.

And speaking of dance floors, yes, this is the same song Madonna sampled in her hit, “Hung Up,” but Cher has shows that she too can reinvent the song for a new generation.
Cher caught ABBA fever when she filmed her role in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, and she had so much fun singing “Fernando” in the movie that she decided to do a whole album of ABBA covers, including some of the group’s biggest hits like “Dancing Queen” and “Waterloo.”
The new collection is scheduled to drop in September, but are we really prepared for an entire album full of Cher-ABBA bangers? Judging from this new snippet, no, we are not.
