Video: For the first time in a decade, Cher is about to release a new album. She talks to TODAY’s Savannah Guthrie about hitting the studio and the stage again after a long hiatus and her relationship with her son, Chaz, and makes a special surprise announcement.

The “Goddess of Pop” revealed some exciting news Monday morning: She will be bringing her chart-topping sound to Rockefeller Plaza for a special performance on Monday, Sept. 23.

The performance, part of TODAY’s Toyota Concert Series, is scheduled for the day before the release of Cher's upcoming album, “Closer to the Truth."

In a TODAY exclusive, the legendary pop star chatted with Savannah Guthrie about her life and career, revealing why she decided to embark on another chapter in her musical career with a fresh album and her “Never Can Say Goodbye” tour.

After Cher announced the concert, Savannah asked her if she was a morning person.

"No. We both know I'm not," Cher replied. "I went into the business so I could work at night."

"The show starts at 7 a.m.," Savannah reminded her.

"I know, I'm gonna have to stay up all night long."

Savannah asked if there was anything TODAY could provide to make the early morning experience easier for her: coffee, doughnuts, croissants?

"A stretcher?" Cher responded laughing.
