Giorgio Moroder Drops Déjà Vu

Disco Music Pioneer Releases First Record Since 1985

This is Giorgio Moroder’s first solo studio album since 1985, and, as the album title suggests, the tracks echo his past but include a modern pop twist. A pioneer of electronic music in the 1970s, for this go out, Moroder got vocal help by current stars — including Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears, and Mikky Ekko — and the result is irresistible songs that produce the urge to dance. It’s exactly what he achieved 30 years ago on “Love to Love You Baby,” “I Feel Love,” and “Last Dance,” his hits featuring disco queen Donna Summer. Most of the tunes on Déjà Vu, especially the title track featuring Sia, are infused with Moroder’s signature sounds that seize upon early and retro disco, strong melodies, and synthesizers. Listen for yourself, and find out why “74 Is the New 24.”
