On the new song, Moroder tells Rolling Stone "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!"
Today, the 74 year old producer also revealed the first details of his new album, expected to be released sometime in 2015. Rolling Stone writes:
The as-yet-untitled record will feature appearances by a number of modern dance-music and EDM artists, including Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Mikky Ekko, Foxes and Matthew Koma, with more collaborators to be announced in the future.
Moroder has had quite the resurgence in his career over the past few years, first working with Daft Punk on Random Access Memories in 2013 and then proceeding to work with Lady Gaga, Sia and Kylie Minogue this year.
