The Beatles. Elvis Presley. Public Enemy. ABBA. Some artists are so legendary, so iconic, that nobody else could possibly capture their energy and spirit with a cover. The only exception is when another legendary icon turns their eye towards such an endeavour.
Can you imagine anyone but Cher paying tribute to ABBA like they deserve? Dancing Queen both honours the original and ratchets up the energy for a modern production, bringing the diva’s timeless voice to a record of ABBA’s most timeless hits. Is it camp as hell? Of course! You wouldn’t want it if it wasn’t.
Dancing Queen is out September 28 via Warner.
