If you follow Cher on social networking site Twitter, you'll know that she's recently been promising fans that a “surprise” will be coming their way . Moments ago, Cher unleashed the surprise – a brand new recording!
The 66-year-old icon released the brand new song to the public on her YouTube account. The song in question is 'Silver Wings', a country track recorded with her God-daughter Jesse Jo Stark – daughter of 'Chrome Hearts' founder Richard Stark.
The star tweeted, “'Silver Wings' – this is a song for Richard, me and Jesse Jo”, followed by a link to the video on YouTube.
Cher made it clear on Twitter that the song, previously recorded by country legend Merle Haggard, will not be available for purchase. She said, “We had to do 'Silver Wings' many times! It's Sweet! It won't be sold! Thought it would bring a smile and a tear!”
Whilst the song is new to us, the duet is certainly not new to Cher or Jesse. The 'You Haven't Seen The Last of Me' singer talked about this particular duet all the way back in October on Twitter.
This is one of at least three duets that Cher has been working on in recent years - others being the as-of-yet unreleased track with her mother Georgia Holt and the Lady Gaga duet 'The Greatest Thing' which is to be included on her upcoming album.
