Cher releasing new album in 2010

The perpetually reclusive Cher made a rare public appearance in Hollywood on Thursday night (April 22).

Joined by longtime pal Hugh Hefner, the Moonstruck actress attended the TCM Classic Film Festival Vanity Fair after party for A Star is Born held at trendy celeb lounge Kress.

Dressed in jeans and a metallic snake skin blazer and looking at fit as a fiddle,Cher seemed like she hasn’t aged a bit.

Cher is currently working on a rock album.

Her rep confirms that the new album will be released later this year and will include two versions of the album. The standard version has 14 songs while the Deluxe Edition will include 19. Her rep says: “This is going to be by far the most successful album Cher has recorded in her 45 year career.”

When interviewed by Vegas Weekly, the 63-year-old icon confirmed that there will be a new tour after her residency at Caesars Palace expires. “You know, I never thought I would ever consider touring again but I miss it. I really do.”

She is set to play her new single Already Been There at the World Music Awards in 2011.

In the meantime, Cher will combine her acting and singing skills in the upcoming film Burlesque, a contemporary musical in which she’ll star alongside Christina Aguilera.
