Magic Radio Breakfast show presenter Scott said in a press statement: “Cher and Christmas is such a perfect pairing that I can’t believe this is her first festive album – why has this not happened before?!
“It already has the makings of some classic Christmas tracks that are bound to be part of Magic’s 100% Christmas playlist for years to come and it’s going to be my choice of background music when the Christmas tree goes up in our household this year!”
Greatest Hits Radio and former BBC 2 presenter Bruce added: “Sometimes I feel like I’ve had a long career in the music industry and then I remember Cher. As a singer whose iconic songs have resonated over numerous decades, from ‘I Got You Babe’ in the sixties to ‘Believe’ in the nineties, she’s been an absolute trailblazer for female singers and artists across the globe.
“This is her 27th album and she’s showing no signs of stopping – thank goodness because the music world would be a much duller place without Cher in it – at Christmas or any other time of the year.”
Cher’s first-ever Christmas album came out in October, which features special guests Stevie Wonder, Michael Bublé, Cyndi Lauper, Tyga and Darlene Love.
Recorded primarily in LA and London, ‘Christmas’ was produced by Cher’s longtime collaborator Mark Taylor, who worked with the singer on her 1998 album ‘Believe’.
“I never say this about my own records but I’m really proud of this one. It is one of the most amazing highlights of my career,” Cher said of the record in a press statement.
Cher’s previous full-length effort, ‘Dancing Queen’, came out back in 2018. In a four-star review, NME wrote: “Cher’s album of Abba covers is joyously camp – and also surprisingly poignant.”
Elsewhere, Cher said in a recent interview that she has “never liked” her singing voice “that much”.
