Giorgio Moroder Reveals He’s Working With Gaga On Her Next Album

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 3.39.52 PM

In an interview with Popjustice music legend Giorgio Moroder revealed that he's working on Lady Gaga's next album and that he's working with several popstars on his own untitled album. Moroder, who worked with Daft Punk on their recent album Random Access Memories, revealed his next album is entirely composed of features from several different singers including popstars Charli XCX, Sia and Britney Spears. Moroder discussed Spears' song and is thinking of adding another singer to sing the bridge on the song; Popjustice recommended Lady Gaga and Moroder revealed that he's currently working with her on her next album and hopes that she'll feature on his next work as well.

Said Moroder:

"I was supposed to be in the studio with her a week ago, but I got a cold. I’ll see her when I’m back. I have about five or six tracks, just basic ideas. Drums, keyboard, bass. I’m going to be surprised, I think – I don’t have a clue about the way she’s recording. Will she play the piano? Will I?

"...This is for her new album – that’s the intention. I was hoping that maybe I can convince her to have one of the songs for my album. If I could convince her, well that would be incredible."

As for Moroder's own upcoming tracks, Popjustice called the track with Sia, Deja Vu, a "melodramatic, string-laded pop explosion of such devastating intensity that the crater it leaves will be visible from space," and Charli XCX's Diamonds a "noisy, clattering megabanger." Moroder refused to reveal the full name of Spears' song on the record but did reveal that he added new aspects to it that is "not on the original," indicating that the song isn't entirely new. 

Said Moroder:

"It's more than just a remake...I added quite a lot of stuff actually-one melody in the chorus, which repeats, and one bridge. It's old, but I consider it a new song.

Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 3.44.59 PMSince Gaga was unable to meet with Moroder, Gaga's spent the weekend tearing up New York City with her best gal pals, posting pictures to her social media accounts of festivities from her best friend's bachelorette party. Gaga posted a video to Instagram of the bachelorette party working the poles at a pole dancing class and enjoying a cadre of male strippers in New York City. Although last weekend was fun and games for Gaga, she's also been hard at work on her next album working with Bad Romance and Poker Face hitmaker RedOne, Diane Warren and Nile Rodgers who also worked with Daft Punk on Random Access Memories. Also rumors of a collaboration with Adele spread like wildfire after Gaga posted a pic of the two hanging out together, leading some to believe that the two discussed possible collaborations with each other.

Moroder just released a single from his upcoming feature album featuring Kylie Minogue called Right Here, Right Now and is currently available on iTunes.

Gay Iconography: Can't Get Kylie Minogue Out of Our Heads


Big icons come in small packages. The petite pop princess Kylie Minogue is not just a gay icon, but, according to a survey printed in The Sun, she’s the biggest gay icon of all time.

You’re free to disagree, but there’s plenty more evidence in her favor. Even Rufus Wainwright named her one of his top gay icons, saying “I love Kylie, she's the anti-Madonna. Self-knowledge is a truly beautiful thing and Kylie knows herself inside out. She is what she is and there is no attempt to make quasi-intellectual statements to substantiate it. She is the gay shorthand for joy.”

She’s acknowledged and celebrated her gay audience throughout her decades-long career.

“I didn’t become a gay icon or become popular in the gay community for doing something specific. That happened just because I was being myself,” she told The Advocate last year. “When I’m on tour, I think there’s a little bit of everything there. From a row of muscle Marys and drag queens to dads, moms, grandmas, and three generations of girls – everyone is there. So I try to put into my shows and albums a little bit for everyone and I hope that colors my work in the best way.”

Whether LGBT audiences adore her for her disco-flavored dance tunes, flashy costumes or charming personality, Kylie’s fervent fans have made her an institution since the late 1980s.

Kylie Minogue Releases 'Crystallize': MUSIC VIDEO


Kylie Minogue released a new track and video on Monday. Minogue, a cancer survivor, wrote the song as a tie-in for the charity One Note for Cancer and the video reveals a long list of folks who donated at its conclusion. Idolator writes:

Minogue worked on “Crystallize” with Dev Hynes and Babydaddy of Scissor Sisters. Pity the track didn’t make the cut for Kiss Me Once, as its upbeat vibe and positive lyrics would have worked perfectly when sandwiched in with the rest of the set.
