Three-time Academy Award winner and disco legend Giorgio Moroder, 74, today released the first single from his first studio album in 30 years. Via Billboard:
Moroder’s long-awaited forthcoming album will feature collaborations with Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Mikky Ekko, Foxes, Matthew Koma and others. He has signed a worldwide deal with Sony Music International for the release of the set, which will arrive on RCA Records in the United States. “Sony/RCA constitutes one of the most groundbreaking histories in the world,” Moroder said in a statement. “As my new label, I believe my record will live up to their history, but more importantly, pave the way for the future! Sony from here to eternity.” To celebrate the announcement of his new album, 74-year-old Moroder released the first music video from the set, appropriately titled “74 Is the New 24.”
Moroder: “Dance music doesn’t care where you live. It doesn’t care who your friends are. It doesn’t care how much money you make. It doesn’t care if you are 74 or if you are 24 because… 74 is the new 24!” The single is available today on iTunes and is streaming on Spotify. To me, it seems to be just a shorter version of Giorgio’s Theme, which was streamed earlier this year and will also be on the new album.
