Cher's new album features a cover of 'Dressed To Kill', the debut solo single by Samuel Preston of The Ordinary Boys.

After The Ordinary Boys split in 2008, Preston launched a solo career as an electro-pop singer and 'Dressed To Kill' was his debut single. However, the track failed to chart and plans to release an album were shelved.

Preston co-wrote 'Dressed To Kill' with songwriter Mark Taylor, who has worked with Cher on numerous occasions over the years and the veteran US pop singer appears to have unearthed the track for 'Closer To The Truth', her first studio album since 2001, which comes out next month (September).

The tracklisting includes a song called 'Dressed To Kill' and Cher has tweeted lyrics, Popjustice reports, identical to those from Preston's single. Preston's original version of 'Dressed To Kill' features a sample of 'Happy House' by Siouxsie & The Banshees but it's not known yet whether Cher's cover version will use the same sample.

Meanwhile, Cher's album also features a duet with Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears and songs written by Timbaland and Pink. However, a duet with Lady Gaga called 'The Greatest Thing' that leaked earlier this month (August) will not be included on the album because, Cher says, Lady Gaga "doesn't like it".

Press 'play' below to listen to 'Dressed To Kill' by Preston.
