Looks Like We'll Get To Hear That Lady Gaga Duet Soon: Cher Confirms Album Release

Cher has been working on her new album for a very long time. It's been a year since we learned that she and Lady Gaga had recorded the Red One-produced duet "The Greatest Thing" for the record. The song was supposed to drop in the fall of last year, but has yet to see the light of day. Despite some strange back-and-forth over the song, Cher has insisted it will appear on her forthcoming album – her first since 2001's Living Proof – and if that's the case, we now know when we'll finally get a taste of the anticipated track.

The music legend took to Twitter late last night (July 29) to reveal that the still-untitled set should hit stores "near Xmas" and that the first single drops in October.

"The Greatest Thing" is not expected to be the first single off the album. Instead, Cher has been singing the praises of an as-yet-unnamed track that is "as good as 'Believe,'" the Euro dance-pop smash that dominated the singles charts in 1999.

She also tweeted several pictures of the ongoing recording sessions for the album. Check them out below!
