Home Celebrity Cher Is Making a Comeback Album with Timbaland, Pink, and Gaga

Cher– you know she is forever. How many farewell tours have there been? Plenty. But Cher is a Phoenix. Thanks to Twitter, we now know that she’s been working on her first album in 11 years. Timbaland is producing it, or most of it. Guest artists include Pink, maybe Christina Aguilera, and seemingly, Lady Gaga.

A source tells me the first single will be ready in October, followed by the album for Christmas. Cher is still on Warner Bros. Records, believe it or not. In her 11 year hiatus she missed the entire Edgar Bronfman debacle. The new people at WB will be motivated to get her some hits. New owner Len Blavatnik is going to love Cher. And of course, there will be another goodbye tour.

Think of it: Cher started singing with Phil Spector around 1964, She sang back up for Ronnie and the Ronettes. Now Phil is in jail, Ronnie and Darlene Love continue to tour, and Cher is making a new album. It will be most welcome. Somewhere, Sonny Bono is smiling. He knew she was a star the minute he saw her.

What would be cool: Cher getting Ronnie and Darlene to join her on a track. And Leon Russell on piano, Carol Kay on bass. They could remake “River Deep Mountain High.”

Meantime, Cher is having a ball on Twitter, slaying Mitt Romney and preaching pro-choice among other things. Her Twitter account reads like the Roller Derby. You gotta love it.

Here’s a picture Cher tweeted from the studio.

  1. Love her singing, always have.

    But her political rants are pathetically laughable.

    As Ann Coulter famously said: “Shut up and sing!”

  2. Cher I absolutely adore you but the day you have to do the Sinatra’esque’ type duets, is the day you are admitting that you can’t carry it yourself. I’d let it go. You are a STAR, a great performer, an icon even but you can do so much more with all your gifts at this point in your life…

  3. Cher is undeniably a great performer and a pretty good singer. I would not be surprised if she buys a good song and makes it a hit. That said I would also not be surprised to see her use the media attention to make a complete ass of herself. Are you paying attention Bruce??

  4. Kudos to the airbrush artist for the album cover

    There is a new app which blocks songs from worn out repetitive singers. Hope it works for this new release.

  5. why can’t these girls learn something from tina turner? Tina has more class in one finger than any of them. Cher? Every time she opens her mouth she pisses off half the people that used to love her. As far as I am concerned she is to me what i am to her…. a none person.
