This is not a drill: Cher is currently recording a second album of ABBA covers!
Cher has spent decades gifting the world with timeless original songs like If I Could Turn Back Time and Believe, but last year she tried something new when she lent her iconic vocals to a selection of ABBA classics on covers album Dancing Queen.
Unsurprisingly, the prospect of two pop music behemoths colliding was a hit with fans of both Cher and ABBA – the album broke into the top five in the US and UK charts – so it’s only natural that a follow-up is now in the works.
Back in November last year, she teased that she’d like to do a second volume of ABBA covers, and would include songs like Does Your Mother Know, Super Trooper, Money Money Money, Take A Chance On Me and I Have A Dream if it came to fruition.
It’s all gone a bit quiet since then, but when Cher was recently asked by a fan on Twitter for an update on the potential for a follow-up album, Cher confirmed that she’s “been downstairs recording” and has completed four songs already.
She also said she’s currently working on Voulez-Vous and Chiquitita (en Español), both of which are ABBA fan favourites.

In a later tweet, Cher said the tracklist as it currently stands contains When All Is Said And Done, Chiquitita (en Español), Take A Chance On Me, I Do I Do I Do I Do I Do, Super Trooper, Voulez-Vous and two more unnamed tracks – leaving fans to guess what they are.

Are there any other ABBA tracks you’re hoping Cher will cover? We’re keeping our fingers crossed for Lay All Your Love On Me.
While you patiently wait for Dancing Queen Volume 2 (now we know it’s definitely coming), why not revisit the original record? We ranked every song on the album when it came out – find out which track we declared number one here.
