Giorgio Moroder is hands down one of the most influential producers and songwriters in modern music history. Moroder produced some of Donna Summer's biggest hits and helped to shape the disco sound and pioneer electronic dance music.
Charging back into the public eye...er...ear by contributing to Daft Punk's "Giorgio by Moroder" track off their smash hit album Random Access Memories, Giorgio has begun to put out his own solo work.
"Sony/RCA constitutes one of the most groundbreaking histories in the world," said Moroder 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."
Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Mikky Ekko, Foxes, Matthew Koma and many more will all make appearances on the upcoming LP.
The first track off his upcoming album--due out Spring 2015 on Sony/RCA--"74 Is The New 24" is a statement that the 74-year-old producer has no intention to slow down any time soon.
"Dance music doesn't care where you live," Moroder said of the new track. "It doesn't care who your friends are. It doesn't care how much money you make. It doesn't care if your 74 or if you are 24 because... 74 is the new 24!"
