by Samantha Jade
$14.95

Australian pop darling Samantha Jade is set to release her third studio album BEST OF MY LOVE on April 20th through Sony Music Entertainment Australia. BEST OF MY LOVE is a shimmering homage to the disco era, filled with tributes to iconic greats such as Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor, Cher, Diana Ross and many more. The album’s title track is a contemporary interpretation of The Emotions’ 1977 smash which perfectly embodies the overarching themes of optimism, positivity and female empowerment within the album.

BEST OF MY LOVE also features brand new original material from Samantha Jade, including future classics ‘Roller Skates’ and ‘Let Me Love You’. ‘Roller Skates’ (from UK dance trio Knoxa) is an original glittering upbeat pop smash, borrowing influences from tropical house and disco genres. The disco throwback ‘Let Me Love You’ was written by renowned DNA Songs (Dami Im, The Veronicas, Jessica Mauboy) and inspired by Australia’s recent Marriage Equality Campaign. Samantha Jade will officially close Mardi Gras with the final performance at Laneway on March 4th.
As many contemporary artists alongside Samantha Jade can attest, the disco era kick-started the modern era of dance-based popular music that still exists today. BEST OF MY LOVE journeys through some of the pinnacle moments in this life-changing era, from ABBA’s ‘Dancing Queen’ (1976) to The Bee Gees’ ‘How Deep Is Your Love’ (1977), to Gloria Gaynor’s ‘I Will Survive’ (1978) and Donna Summer’s ‘Hot Stuff’ (1979), as well as Diana Ross’ ‘Upside Down’ and ‘I’m Coming Out’ (1980). On BEST OF MY LOVE¸ Samantha Jade also pays homage to some of the ground-breaking songwriters and producers behind the hits, including Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of Chic, Giorgio Moroder and Clifton Davis.

Samantha comments on the record, “BEST OF MY LOVE was such a fun record to make. I hope it reignites the passion for all disco lovers and helps tell the story of this exciting genre to a whole new audience that may not have experienced the lifestyle first-hand. It’s such an honour to pay tribute to some of the most iconic divas such as Donna Summer, Cher and Diana Ross. I’ve always been inspired by disco, soul funk and dance, particularly the female voices that emerged during this time.
