Giorgio Moroder and Charli XCX Reveal ‘Diamonds’
Giorgio Moroder feat. Charli XCX - Diamonds (Original Mix) [Sony]

Pioneering Italian disco and electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder has revealed Diamonds, his Charli XCX collaboration set to be featured on Deja Vu, his first artist album in 30 years.

Dubby electro that feels like Dada Life demanding to Kick Out The Epic is married with the saccharine vocal stylings of the Boom Clap pop princess for a surprising, yet still entertaining collaborative effort. Thinking that this is a wholly modernist take from Moroder, do note that the vocoder-style voice saying “diamonds” is a nod to Herb Alpert and Janet Jackson’s 1987 duet that shares a name with this tune.

Pre-order Giorgio’s Deja Vu album ahead of its June 12 release date on iTunes here, and grab Diamonds here, too.
