Cher Credits Success and Longevity To To Luck

Cher credits her longevity to a simple notion: luck.

“I really believe it’s luck,” she said in a new sit-down interview with CBS News’ Edward Lawrence. “I think it’s luck. It doesn’t make any sense that it’s not. I think you have to be lucky because I do what I do and it’s all well and good but it’s not rocket science. It’s just something. I believe it’s 50 percent luck.”

That “luck” Cher speaks of continues as she readies her new album, “Closer to the Truth,” due Sept. 24. The set marks the singer’s 26th solo album and her first since 2002’s “Living Proof.”

Armed with “great songs,” Cher said there’s not one track she doesn’t like on the album, which features a guest appearance by Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters.

Cher’s Next Album Due Out in Late March

Cher’s next studio album, her first since 2001’s Living Proof, is due out in late March 2013.

The targeted release date was confirmed by Livia Tortella, Warner Bros. Records Co-President/COO, on the red carpet at Billboard‘s 2012 Women in Music event on Friday, Nov. 30. According to Tortella, Cher’s forthcoming full-length is among a full slate of early 2013 album releases from the label, including new efforts from Josh Groban, Michael Buble, Goo Goo Dolls and Avenged Sevenfold.

Last month, Cher previewed her long-in-the-works album by releasing a new dance single, “Woman’s World,” online. The clip of the official track has earned 395,000 YouTube views since its release two weeks ago.

On Twitter, the veteran pop star described the new album as “Eclectic! Lots of dance, but none [are] SAME KIND OF DANCE ! Have Big ass Choruses,Some HEART RIPPERS!” Cher has previously mentioned that P!nk and Lady Gagahave written songs for the upcoming LP.

Cher notched another No. 1 in 2011 when she topped the Dance/Club Play Songs chart with “You Haven’t Seen the Last Of Me.” The achievement made Cher the only act to have scored a No. 1 on a Billboard chart in each of the last six decades.

Living Proof, which included the singles “The Music’s No Good Without You” and “Alive Again,” has sold 520,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.—Hollywood Reporter

Will There Be a New Cher 2012 Album And Tour?

Our favorite superstar Cher is set to seal her pop comeback this year (12) with a new tour and her first album in more than a decade.

The Believe hitmaker’s last record Living Proof was released in 2001, and she declared Living Proof: The Farewell Tour would be her last trek.

She later signed up for a three-year Las Vegas residency at The Colosseum theatre, and last year (11) she revealed she was working on a new album.

The as-yet-untitled record is set to hit shelves this year (12), and Cher has thrilled fans by revealing she wants to accompany the release with a tour.

When asked by a follower on Twitter.com if her new album is finished yet, she replied, “God no, but it will b (sic) out this year, maybe to coincide with (X (cross) Our Fingers) Tour?!”
