Déjà Vu (stylized as deja-vu) is the fourteenth studio album by Italian DJ Giorgio Moroder, his first album, after a 23-years hiatus, since Forever Dancing (1992).[1] It was released on 12 June 2015, and features collaborations with: Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Kelis, Sia, Charli XCX, Mikky Ekko, Foxes and Matthew Koma, among others.[2] On 20 January 2015, the collaboration with Kylie Minogue, "Right Here, Right Now", was officially released, along with a video teaser.[3]

Background[edit]

Moroder contributed to Daft Punk's 2013 studio album Random Access Memories, admitting that he had been a fan of their song "One More Time" before working with the group.[4] His voice and story is featured on the album's track "Giorgio by Moroder". On the track he states, "My name is Giovanni Giorgio, but everybody calls me Giorgio."[5]

In summer 2013, Giorgio started to DJ, making his US debut at the Red Bull Music Academy in New York City.[6][7] He toured around the world, playing his classics from the '70s and '80s as well as new remixes.

In 2014, Giorgio Moroder reworked a song of his own from the '60s called "Doo Bee Doo" (2014 version), which was used in the 2014 Volkswagen Super Bowl commercial titled "Wings".[8][9]

In March 2014, singer Kelis announced a collaboration with Moroder on her Facebook page.[10] The following month, Moroder released his official remix of Coldplay's "Midnight" from their album Ghost Stories.[11] He also announced that he will work with the French electro-pop producer Madeon,[12] and American singer Lana Del Rey.[13][14]

On 9 June 2014, Adult Swim released a Hi-NRG disco single by Moroder called "Giorgio's Theme".[15] Moroder also remixed Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga's rendition of "I Can't Give You Anything but Love".[2]

In November 2014, it was announced that Déjà Vu featuring contributions from Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Sia, Charli XCX, Mikky Ekko, Foxes, Matthew Koma, among others was being put together.
