Cher has been making music since the '60s, achieving massive success and global stardom, yet despite all she has accomplished she recently shared that she is so hyper-critical of her work that she doesn't love every song she puts out. 

Talking to Billboard about her new Christmas album she said that her new songs are not "Christmas Christmas" songs but that they're "just great songs", especially compared to her older work.

“And I never say that because I almost never like what I do... But I mean people love it and I’m happy.” 

“I’m so particular, but I love the songs and everyone who hears them loves them.”

She also added that she had no intention of making a Christmas album but she was happy that she was able to put out something festive with her own spin added. 

“Everybody’s gotten ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ and ‘Jingle Bells’ and all that”

The album, her first in five years, will include both original Cher songs and covers of classic Christmas songs, along with collaborations with Stevie Wonder, Michael Bublé, Cyndi Lauper, Darlene Love, and most interestingly, rapper Tyga.

She released the first single, 'DJ Play A Christmas Song' earlier this week, much to the delight of fans, which you can listen to below.
