Perhaps the track will catch on if I can sit through a few more spins, but the new Giorgio Moroder / Kylie Minogue collaboration does not fail to disappoint. Perhaps it is a self-fulfilling prophecy. After having been raised on champagne voices like Donna Summer, it is difficult to accept squeaky imitations (sorry, Donna; it was not in your character to speak ill of anybody).
Having said that, no doubt the track will bring shivers up the spines of many. The hook takes a good stab at being happy and upbeat. Were I still a club kid and downed a few drinks, I might find myself celebrating that at least part of what used to be still remains.
Auto-Tune is the new 24. The track could have been performed by any number of women, and based on the lineup, it will be.
Moroder’s long-awaited forthcoming album will feature collaborations with Britney Spears, Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Mikky Ekko, Foxes, Matthew Koma and others. He has signed a worldwide deal with Sony Music International for the release of the set, which will arrive on RCA Records in the United States. Billboard
