After getting a nice profile boost on Daft Punk’s smash 2013 album, electronic dance music pioneer Giorgio Moroder is fully back in action and will release a new album via Sony Music next year. The record is packed with guests, including Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Mikky Ekko, Foxes, Matthew Koma, and more to be announced. Moroder says:
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 your 74 or if you are 24 because… 74 is the new 24!
Strangely enough, “74 is the new 24″ is also the title of the first single from the record, the video for which just premiered via The Creator’s Project. Directed by Jai Lewis, it makes cool use of CGI rotoscope animation. As for the song itself, not unlike “Moroder’s Theme” which was released as an Adult Swim single this summer, it is reminiscent of his Midnight Express soundtrack with a little Daft Punk disco thrown in as well.
