Finally good news for those who likes the Diva! As Billboard magazine says:
“Love to Love You Donna” will include remixes by Giorgio Moroder, Frankie Knuckles, Hot Chip & more.
The legacy of the late Donna Summer continues to live on, as a new remix album celebrating the diva’s career is due out in October.
“Love to Love You Donna” will be released on Oct. 22 through Verve Records, and is produced by Dahlia-Ambach Caplin and Randall Poster. The project features new re-workings of classic Summer tunes from the likes of Giorgio Moroder, Frankie Knuckles, Eric Kupper, Chromeo & Oliver and Hot Chip, among others.
The project came together at Verve because of the long friendship between David Foster (Verve Music Group’s Chairman) and Summer’s family, says Mike Rittberg, Verve/Universal Music Group’s VP of artist development/promotion. The set was initially conceived as a “tribute” album, but soon turned into a full-on remix project.
“Love to Love You Donna” is not — at this point — part of a longer-term, multi-album deal with Summer’s estate and Verve Records.
Summer earned a total of 32 hit singles on the Hot 100 in her lifetime, with 14 of those reaching the top 10, before she passed away in May 2012. She claimed a top 40 hit every year from 1976 and 1984, and between 1976 and the end of 1982, she had more top 10 hits (12) than any other act.
Her biggest singles include her four Hot 100 No. 1s: “MacArthur Park,” “Hot Stuff,” “Bad Girls” and “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)” with Barbra Streisand.”
and that’s not all! There are probably lots of unreleased material to be out, including
a new cd she was recording until her last days.
