Cher: It's A drag About 'Woman's World'! - Plus, January Release For Cher's New Material?
The online leak of new Cher song 'Woman's World' has been the hottest topic for Cher fans over the last couple of days.
The other day, a fifteen-second clip of the song – in fact a demo of the song - 'Woman's World' was leaked online. Now, a minute-length snippet of the song has been uploaded on the net, seemingly by a DJ located in Michigan, who debuted at least part of the Cher tune at the state's 'Metro' nightclub.
Cher, puzzled at how the DJ played the song at the Michigan club, tweeted that she was “upset” about the leak;
“I'm upset about the leak. It's not the end of the world, but, I don't understand how a club in Michigan played a minute of it? It's not the final mix! The vocal sounds different, well, there's more but I'm not going to stress. It's just that it's my first CD in a gazillion years and I've worked so hard on it. I wanted it to come out like it is now. Pink's ballad is my second favorite song - every woman I played it for cried. But I just got amazing new songs! Mark Taylor ('believe' producer') is coming with his songs, Billy Mann (Pink's producer) has done two and two more to do! I'm very lucky, but it's a drag about 'Woman's World'!”
Cher went on to reveal that her record company had changed plans to unleash Cher's new material in January – instead of in the remaining months of 2012. Also, she insinuated that 'Woman's World' will be the first single off her new album – and revealed that a music video has not yet been made for the single;
“Guys don't sweat it. I have two real problems with this leak! First I wanted people to hear the final mix, and we haven't done a video! Also, my record company had changed roll out date to January. They wanted to have videos finished, and world promo tour, etcetera etcetera, to coincide. 'The best laid schemes of mice & men'.”
With all this talk of Cher's new single, videos and so on, it leads one to believe - and hope - that the album is now complete. Cher set the record straight when she replied to one fan who asked, “How finished is the album?” Cher answered, “We are over-recording so we can pick the best ones [to put on the album], and there might be bonus tracks available.”
