Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder changed the dance floor forever with their 1977 hit “I Feel Love.” Now, decades later, Sam Smith and Disclosure‘s Guy Lawrence have totally revamped the single. The original “I Feel Love” reached No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the charts in several other countries. More importantly, the high-energy disco vibe left an instant and lasting impact on dance music as we know it.
Moroder once told BBC that “I Feel Love” was “really the start of electronic dance” music. For some it’s that — and for others, the anthem has an even deeper meaning.
Following this new release, Sam Smith said:
As a queer person ‘I feel love’ has followed me to every dance floor in every queer space from the minute I started clubbing. This song to me is an anthem of our community and it was an honour and most importantly so much fun to have a go at it. Highest song I’ve ever fucking sang. But a joy. I hope you all like it xx
