Nudisco: Donna Summer - I Got Your Love
All hail the queen! In case anyone hasn't heard, the Queen of Disco has a new single out - with ridiculously airbrushed cover photo, club friendly remixes and everything.. I really love this song though. Such a sleek and sublime track, vocally she's right on point. Some good remixes on it too (particularly the L.E.X. mixes).. I remember the buzz about this when it was first heard in an episode of Sex and the City and later this past summer when it was released as an iTunes exclusive. So far it seems to have done pretty well on the dance charts with what seems to be minimal promotion at best..
Hopefully the strength of this single will lead to an album deal of some sort, it's been years since her last proper one. On a slightly related note, former Sony chairman Tommy Mottola (who signed Donna to Epic in the late '90s, I believe) is now at the helm of the recently revived Casablanca/Universal imprint (www.casablanca-music.com). Since some of her latest releases have been through Universal and she's undoubtedly one of the original Casablanca's biggest artists, it would be ironic (yet somehow appropriate) if she was to be on the Casablanca label again all these years later. Looking at the new label's illustrious roster though, I'm not holding out much hope for that happening...
Since this is a fairly new release I won't be posting any mp3s for this one yet, but if you haven't already visited her website (www.donnasummer.com), there are small samples of this latest single and some as yet unreleased songs that sound really really good if I do say so myself..
Oh, and thanks to The Boy Wonder and Sunny (Brooklyn) for linking me on their blogs :-)
