October 18, 2018Nile Rodgers' Let's Dance string version due next month
“Let's dance - To the song they're playin' on the radio...”
Exclusively available on the new compilation album, 80s Symphonic, David Bowie’s 1983 classic Let’s Dance has been orchestrated and arranged for strings by the track’s original producer Nile Rodgers at Abbey Road Studios.
Nile had this to say regarding working on the track:
“My work with David Bowie and specifically “Let’s Dance” is sacrosanct to me, so when I was asked by David’s family and Warner’s to add orchestration to the original recording I approached it with extreme trepidation. In fact my only concern was to protect David’s artistic vision and integrity. In the end I’m very grateful that we did this, as I believe anyone who loves the original will be excited by it. I’m certain David would approve from above”.
80s Symphonic is released on 9th November and on vinyl 7th December. Pre-order here: https://VA.lnk.to/80sSymphonic
