Lady Gaga Covers Chic’s 1979 Disco Classic ‘I Want Your Love’ for Tom Fordby Bradley Stern | PopCrush
Years after Lady Gaga first growled “I want your love” on her immaculate Fame Monster anthem “Bad Romance,” Mother Monster is back at it again — still just as thirsty for your love as ever — this time with a killer cover of Chic’s “I Want Your Love.”
In a fashion film directed by Nick Knight, who has collaborated with Gaga several times in the past, including the Monster Ball Tour video interludes and her stunning photo shoot for the September 2010 issue of Vanity Fair, Gaga and a whole host of models strut their stuff while showing off designer Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2016 fashions to the sound of Gaga’s fierce new cover of the 1979 disco classic.
“Instead of having a traditional show this season, I wanted to think about how to present a collection in a cinematic way that was designed from its inception to be presented online,” Ford explained of the video on his official website. “I have always loved Soul Train, which used to be on TV in the ’70s, as it was as much about the clothes as the music. I asked Nile Rodgers to collaborate on a new version of one of his great hits from that time, “I Want Your Love,” and worked with Gaga to record the vocals.”
While the music might not necessarily reflect what Gaga’s cooking up in the studio with RedOne for her Elton John-approved next album (code name LG5), it’s still thrilling to hear anything new (and non-jazzy!) from the Cheek To Cheek singer.
Get thee to a discotheque, check out the video above and prepare to go back in time with Nile, Nick, Tom and Gaga.
