Cher's new album of Abba covers, "Dancing Queen," will be released on Sept. 28, Warner Bros. Records announced today.

The singer and actress -- who has won Oscar, Emmy and Grammy Awards -- was inspired to record the album following her performance in the recently-released hit film, "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again," according to the announcement.

"I've always liked Abba and saw the original 'Mamma Mia' musical on Broadway three times," Cher said. "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."

The album was recorded and produced in London and Los Angeles with Cher's longtime collaborator Mark Taylor, who previously produced Cher's global hit single "Believe." The tracklist appears below.

Cher released a teaser video for the album's first single, "Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!," Wednesday night.

Cher is scheduled to be awarded a Kennedy Center Honor on Dec. 2 in Washington DC. She is also a co-producer of the "The Cher Show," the upcoming Broadway musical opening on December 3, and will be touring Australia and New Zealand in September. She is currently performing a residency at MGM Resorts in Las Vegas.
