Cher Releasing and Album of ABBA Singles

Cher has announced that she has recorded an entire album of ABBA covers.

The 72-year-old singer revealed the news in an interview with the Today Show .

"After I did 'Fernando,' I thought it would really be fun to do an album of ABBA songs, so I did!" she told Today Show host Kathie Lee Gifford. "It's not what you think of when you think ABBA, 'cause I did it in a different way."

She did not elaborate on the upcoming musical work, but she recently hinted about the release of a new album in September.

The sequel film Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, in which Cher plays Fernando, premiered in London on Monday.

The septuagenarian acts as the mother of the character played by Meryl Streep, who is three years younger than her.
