The Grammy, Oscar and Emmy Award-winning superstar has released 24 solo studio albums so far during her lengthy career. Around half of those albums have been named after a song title on the album (like 'Believe' and 'Half-Breed') but with Cher's last album, 2001's 'Living Proof', the name came from a lyric on the album.
For her new album, 'Closer To The Truth', the title arrived by re-using the latter method of taking it from a lyric - it comes from a song on the album written by fellow pop/rock songstress Pink, in which Cher sings, "I get angry as I get closer to the truth'. However, Cher revealed to UK BBC TV show 'Breakfast' that the album was a "nice" working title for the album, but had she had longer to think of a title, she'd have named it 'Dressed To Kill' - the name of a song on the album.
She told the BBC show, "They needed a name for the album, and it was a working title. There was a part in one of Pink's songs that says, 'I get angry as I get closer to the truth', and I just remember thinking, 'Ah 'Closer To The Truth', that's nice.' I thought of it as a working title. And truthfully, if I'd thought about it longer, I would have called it 'Dressed To Kill' because it seems more appropriate. But then I just kind of thought, 'Well... I Like it.' It's very vigorous and everyone can put their own meaning into it."
Cher has managed to use the name 'Dressed To Kill' elsewhere, having named next year's world tour, the 'Dressed To Kill Tour'. Cher explained as to why she had at one point retired from touring - "I didn't think I had anything else to say or do or whatever" - before revealing exactly what has lured her back to the idea of hitting the road; "Well, only this album really. When you have something new to say or new to sing, it makes the idea of going on tour more reasonable".
The 67-year-old, who graces her new album cover in a skimpy flesh-baring piece of lingerie, also talked about the video to her new single - the US dance hit 'Woman's World'; "I think it was nice to have the women and it's called 'Woman's World' - it makes perfect sense. And to have all different kinds of women, shapes and colours and ethnicity and you know, everything. I like the idea that women can relate to it. It's not like, 'Oh my God, that's the greatest video I've ever seen'. It's nothing like that, it's just kind of plain. And of course, me with my newspaper hair."
