Kylie Minogue Is Featured On The New Giorgio Moroder Album

After a memorable collaboration with Daft Punk on 2013's Random Access Memories, electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder is back, releasing his first album of solo material in over 30 years.

 74 Is the New 24 (Sony/RCA), announced today, is set to drop in spring 2015 and features a new batch of notable
 collaborators including Britney Spears, Sia, Kylie Minogue, Charli XCX, and more. 
"Dance music doesn't care where you live," the 74-year-old Italian disco trailblazer said in a statement. "It doesn’t care who your friends are. It doesn't care how much money you make. It doesn't care if you're 74 or if you are 24 because...74 is the new 24!"

Earlier this year, Moroder issued the throbbing, nearly eight-minute "Giorgio's Theme," his first single in 20 years that is now available as the B-side to "74 Is the New 24" on iTunes.

In an interview with the Creators Project, the music producer credited Daft Punk with inspiring his return to music. Moroder collaborated with the masked French dance duo on their Grammy-winning Random Access Memories album, which came out last year. He also beamed about his recent collaborations with Sia, Kylie Minogue and Lady Gaga. "At my age, in 2014, I was more than happy [to work with them]," he told Creators Project. "And now, between my collaborations and DJing, I love my second career."

Following his collaboration with Daft Punk, Moroder came back into the spotlight as a remixer. Since then, he has issued new mixes of songs by Donna Summer ("Love to Love You Baby"), Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett ("I Can't Give You Anything but Love") and Coldplay ("Midnight").

Moroder came to prominence in the Seventies as a key contributor to Donna Summer's hit singles like "I Feel Love," "Love to Love You Baby" and "Hot Stuff"; he and Summer won the Best Dance Recording Grammy in 1997 for their song, "Carry On." He also collaborated with Barbra Streisand, Elton John, Blondie, Cher, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie and others. Moroder is also known for his film scores, including Scarface and Midnight Express, and soundtrack song contributions (Flashdance's "Flashdance...What a Feeling," Top Gun's "Take My Breath Away") among others, for which he has received three Oscars, two Grammys and four Golden Globes.
