Cher has released a Net-only album, but reckons it is just for her die-hard fans.

The star wrote the material for Not Com.mercial six years ago, but was forced to shelve the project when music execs rejected it.

It is full of her own personal experiences - such as her unhappy spell with a bunch of nuns and a fling with a married man, along with some not so personal ones - one tune is about the suicide of Kurt Cobain (whom Cher never met).

The song entitled "Sisters of Mercy" is sure to get the Catholic Church's blood boiling. It refers to the nuns who cared for her in a Catholic orphanage as "Daughters of Hell" and "Masters of Pain".

Cher is not known for writing her own songs, but apparently penned the album, which will only be available on her official site, after attending a songwriters' conference.

"It's not for kids," she said in an interview with Wall of Sound.

"I don't see this as being a very big album. I won't be playing it anywhere...I was listening to it the other day and I thought this stuff is just so personal, is anyone gonna give a s--t?"

In related news, The Beatles are to get their first official Website 30 years after their break-up. Fans can visit the Abbey Road recording studios or listen to live recordings of the band from the 60's courtesy of cyberspace. thebeatles.com goes live on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Madonna's first UK concert in seven years is due to be broadcast live on the Net from Brixton Academy on 28 November. ®
