Still sexy at seventy (four), Italo-disco king Giorgio Moroder has signed to Sony/RCA, and via that same deal will release his first ‘solo’ LP in approx 30 years, ’74 Is The New 24′, in ‘Q4’ of 2015. Like a wise yet sprightly spring lamb with a great sense of rhythm, one might say.

Aaaanyway, it will feature (relative to Giorgio) dribbling pop babies like Charli XCX, Britney Spears, Sia, Kylie, Mikky Ekko, Foxes, and also, ‘more’.

Philosophising on his life and art so far in the ’74…’ press release, 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 you’re 74 or if you are 24 because… 74 is the new 24!”

And looking back at his big renaissance, which started with that collaborative track on Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’, he tells The Creator’s Project: “After [Daft Punk] asked me to be on their record I started to get offers to DJ, which I had never done, and that was a great thing, and then I started to get offers for a deal, and Sony/RCA was the best, so I went with them”.

He adds: “At my age, in 2014, I was more than happy. And now, between my collaborations and DJing, I love my second career”.

How nice. Also nice is the video to the ’74 Is The New 24′ title track, aka this video:
