It seems that starring as Meryl Streep’s mother and mesmerizing us with a grand rendition of “Fernando” in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again wasn’t enough for Cher. While doing press for the long-awaited sequel to the famous musical, she revealed that the experience was so much fun that she decided to release an entire album of ABBA covers.

Yesterday, the pop icon took to her favorite medium, Twitter, to reveal more information about the exciting endeavor. Obvious hits from the legendary Swedish pop group like “Dancing Queen” and “Mamma Mia” (which, in endearing Cher fashion, she misspelled) are apart of the tracklist, alongside gems like “Chiquitita” and “The Winner Takes It All”. One track still remains a mystery, however. Can we expect a Meryl duet? A version of “Voulez-Vous” that reunites Agnetha, Frida, Benny, and Björn? We can only hope.

Cher also announced that the album would arrive in September and gave it the highest praise it could receive:

If Cher even likes it, we're in for a wild ride. But in the meantime, we must let her finish what is going to be an iconic moment. Later.
