Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers have recorded a new version of Chic’s 1978 smash “I Want Your Love”, sporting Gaga on lead vocals. The song and accompanying video were recorded to push forward Tom Ford’s new fashion line.
Tom Ford, and the video’s director, Nick Knight, have released a statement explaining the sentiment behind the release: “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. I have always loved Soul Train which used to be on TV in the Seventies; 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. I then staged a full show in Los Angeles and filmed it with Gaga on the runway”.
