Cher's Groovy Take on ABBA's 'SOS' Just Came To Our Rescue

Hot off her fabulous cameo in Mamma Mia 2 Here We Go Again, Cher just teased fans with another cut from her forthcoming album "Dancing Queen" featuring songs of ABBA covers.

Previously, she released a club version of "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! A Man After Midnight," infused with the vocoder effect she made popular with her former 1998 hit "Believe,"to tantalize fans. They were not disappointed and were left wanting more.

So the 72-year-old singer released another popular ABBA tune and gave "SOS" the familiar auto-tuned flourish.


Sample Cher's take on "SOS" in the clip below.



"SOS" was ABBA's first major worldwide hit from their self-titled 1975 album after "Waterloo," which also appeared as a B-side to the single, "Man in the Middle."

Cher teased her fans on Twitter.

Oh yes we did, Cher. And we're loving it!

The song's blend of ballad and uptempo pop sits comfortably in Cher's wheelhouse of performing catchy, danceable tunes, and we can hardly wait to hear the singer's take on other ABBA hits like "Mamma Mia," "Waterloo," and "The Name of the Game."



The iconic singer delighted audiences as Ruby Sheridan – Sophie's (Amanda Seyfried) grandmother and Donna's (Meryl Streep) mother in Mamma Mia 2 Here We Go Again, in which she sang "Fernando" and "Super Trooper."

Her performance in the movie had fans clamoring for more interpretations of classic ABBA hits. So it was inevitable that the diva would record a full album's worth of covers featuring the Swedish pop group's infectious repertoire.

She dropped news of her 26th studio album while on a press tour for Mamma Mia 2.

The verdict is in. People can't get enough of her version of the song destined to be a new club hit.









Until "Dancing Queen" is released on September 28, we'll just have to play "Gimme Gimme Gimme A Man After Midnight" and "SOS" on a loop.

At 72, this Super Trooper is showing no signs of slowing down. Here's to the Dancing Queen!
