Cher Drops ‘SOS’ From ABBA Tribute Album

August 24, 2018


Summer may be winding down, but fortunately, we can thank Cher for keeping our spirits high as Labor Day approaches.

The diva dropped “SOS,” the second single from her forthcoming ABBA tribute album, “Dancing Queen,” on Thursday. Not surprisingly, her version of ABBA’s 1975 classic is pure disco heaven. Check it out above. 

“SOS” comes just two after the release of the album’s first single, “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight),” which hit YouTube and streaming platforms Aug. 9. 

Cher, 72, can partially credit ABBA for her latest career renaissance. After an eight-year hiatus, the singer-actress returned to the big screen in the all-ABBA movie musical, “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.” Her performance of 1976′s “Fernando” with co-star Andy Garcia was singled out by many critics as a highlight of the hit film. 

She said her experience filming the movie inspired her to delve deeper into the ABBA catalogue for “Dancing Queen,” out Sept. 28.
