Giorgio Moroder, the man responsible for crafting some of the most influential pop records of the past 40 years, from Donna Summer‘s “I Feel Love” to Blondie‘s “Call Me” to Irene Cara‘s “Flashdance… What A Feeling” to his memorable collaboration on Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories, is finally returning with his first original artist album in 30 years. Brilliantly titled 74 Is The New 24, the upcoming LP due out in Spring via Sony/RCA Records, will feature a new batch of notable collaborators including Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Mikky Ekko, Foxes and Matthew Koma among others. EXCITING!!!
Here we have the project’s lead single, “Right Here, Right Now“, featuring our favorite Aussie Queen Kylie Minogue! Produced by Moroder and Patrick Jordan-Patrikios, the song plays out like a perfect marriage of Kylie‘s classic Fever hits with Giorgio‘s signature disco-pop sheen while still remaining modern with its smooth robotic synths and moments of electro greatness. “Staring in your eyes, I see the sunrise / There’s nowhere else but right here, right now / No deeper feeling, this is the real thing / there’s nowhere else but right here, right now!” Kylie sweetly sings on the feel-good chorus. The pairing is what pop dreams are made of, I can’t get enough of it. GET INTO IT!
