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

Hot off her stilleto heel-cameo in Mamma Mia 2, 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."

This time, she adds the familiar flourish to ABBA's hit, "SOS."


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," and appeared as a B-side to "Man in the Middle."

Cher teased her fans on Twitter.


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



The blend of opening ballad and uptempo pop of "SOS" fits comfortably in Cher's wheelhouse of catchy, danceable songs, 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 performances were a tease for fans clamoring for more interpretations of classic ABBA hits. So it was only inevitable that the diva would record a full album's worth of covers of the Swedish pop group's catchy 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.
