"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?' 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."

“It’s not what you think of when you think of ABBA because I did it in a different way," Cher revealed on . That's because she decided to work with her longtime collaborator Mark Taylor on it, who helped her create her 1998 hit "Believe." Think high-energy dance tunes with Cher's signature vocals ... and just a hint of vocoder.
