Defining ‘throwback’: @GiorgioMoroder and @Sia deliver “Deja Vu”

GIORGIO MORODER featuring SIA, “Deja Vu”

The first Giorgio Moroder album in 30 years, now called Deja Vu, is one of the most anticipated records for me for 2015, and it arrives in June, featuring contributions from Britney Spears, Mikky Ekko, Matthew Koma, Foxes, Charli XCX, and others.  After the success of his pairing with Kylie Minogue on “Right Here Right Now” (which peaked at #4 on my chart) comes the title song with vocal by Sia.  To me this is as much of a throwback to Giorgio’s classic records of the 70’s, and Sia sometimes has amazing flourishes in her voice that sound heavily inspired by Donna Summer.  Perhaps it’s not as adventurous or over-the-top sounding as Sia’s songs from her own album, but like Chic’s “I’ll Be There”, “Deja Vu” is an airy, danceable paean to the happy era where people were content to dance the night away.  I’m hoping that “Deja Vu” will light up radio station ears too – not to be missed!
