Shooter Jennings Plans New Album, ‘Countach (for Giorgio)’
Shooter Jennings is releasing a new album, Countach (for Giorgio), which will pay tribute to an award-winning musician and feature several well-known guests.
Jennings' new project, as its title hints, pays tribute to Grammy and Academy Award winner Giorgio Moroder, an Italian record producer, songwriter, performer and DJ who is credited with pioneering synth disco and electronic music. Most notably, Moroder wrote Top Gun's "Take My Breath Away" and Flashdance's "Flashdance ... What a Feeling," and he recently won a Grammy for contributing to Daft Punk's Random Access Memories.
"I decided to try and use the instrumentation that Giorgio introduced into culture, especially the DX7 keyboard and the LinnDrum drum machine, which are also Prince’s favorites," Jennings explains. "So I used those for most of [Don't Wait Up (for George)], and I used traditional country instrumentation for most of the Giorgio stuff, which probably blended it more for [listeners’] ears.”
Countach (for Giorgio) is set for release on March 11 via BCR Media; a complete track listing is available below. The record is currently available for pre-order on BCR Media's official website.
