Giorgio Moroder Remixes Haim’s ‘Forever’ Into a Vocoder Voyage
Italian disco legend meets Los Angeles' darling daughters, funkiness ensues
Two of 2013’s most exciting artists are coming together as we tumble toward the year’s end. Below, SPIN cover stars Haim get remixed by disco innovator Giorgio Moroder, who’s been experiencing a well-deserved career renaissance since helping Daft Punk tap into their Random Access Memories. Those Parisian droids weren’t the only act in this article to rank on our Best 50 Albums of 2013 list — Haim’s Days Are Gone was our fourth favorite LP due to the effervescent might of songs such as “Forever,” which gets expertly flipped by Moroder here. Adding a bounding four-four beat, orchestral flare to the hook, and his own Vocoder solo, the Italian icon doesn’t remake the track so much as commingle his presence with that of the sisters Haim. Catch his brooding take on Claire’s “Broken Promise Land” as well, then make sure to peruse our Best 50 Songs of 2013.
