The almighty Cher sent the LGBT community into frenzy when she announced an album of ABBA cover songs - inspired by her role in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again!

The new album - aptly called 'Dancing Queen' - is slated to be released on September 28 (read our track by track review here) and it's definitely one not to miss.

Cher joined the cast of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again – the highly anticipated sequel to the hit 2008 musical movie – and during the film she performs the ABBA classic ‘Fernando’ as well as joining in the full-cast rendition of ‘Super Trouper’.

And after being inspired by the Swedish group’s music, the Oscar and Grammy winner decided to get back into the studio and create an album dedicated to the popular musical sensations and last month released the tracklist of the album with a hidden number 10 - which has now been revealed to be 'One of Us'.

Since announcing the album, the Attitude cover star has been slowly been releasing tracks showing off her vocal class and now, the singing icon has released the official video for 'SOS'.

The video - which was directed by Jake Wilson - features women lip-sync along to the song by themselves before they come together to show the power of unity.
