Cher Will Release New Album Later This Year

Cher is set to debut the album Closer to the Truth later this year.

The singer unveiled her new single “Woman’s World” during Tuesday’s appearance on The Voice. If you missed her performance on the singing competition, then you can check out the song below.

According to Billboard, Cher said the tune was the jumping off point for her new album. The song was produced and co-written by renowned DJ Paul Oakenfold.

“Then Pink gave me a beautiful song. Then Mark [Taylor], the man who produced the ‘Believe’ album, came up with four great songs. There was a beautiful country song and a song a friend of mine and I wrote for ‘Interview with a Vampire’ that got turned down,” Cher explained.

The folks at Warner Bros. are set to release the new batch of tunes on September 24. The 67-year-old singer hasn’t dropped any new music since Living Proof in 2002. Closer to the Truth will serve as Cher’s 26th album.

“It’s about being fabulous!” the singer said of her new album. “I would say, truthfully, I’m not a huge Cher fan, and I’ve said this a million times, but I think this is probably the best album I’ve ever done.”

Although she hasn’t released an album in nearly 11 years, that doesn’t mean Cher has been resting on her laurels. The singer appeared in the 2010 flick Burlesque with Christina Aguilera, who also reportedly helped out with the new album. Cher also enjoyed a residency at Las Vegas’ Colosseum in Caesars Palace.

Cher hinted that she might hit the road to support Closer to the Truth when it finally hits retail shelves. She may have already embarked on a Farewell Tour, but the singer admits she might do another round of shows in the coming months.
