1.Listen to THIS sample of Britney and Giorgio Moroder’s disco rewire of ‘Tom’s Diner”
While the vocal collaborators list is red-hot on ’74 is the New 24,’ the first album in 30 years from disco king, Giorgio Moroder, it’s his studio time with Ms. Britney that has gained the most buzz. (Love you, Kylie. XO) When the track list for Mr. Moroder’s set was released, it was revealed that the duo rewerked the 1991 Suzanne Vega/DNA smash, “Tom’s Diner,’ into a disco ditty. Now, hot off the music press, there’s this short clip of the rewire that is guaranteed to keep the Britney/Giorgio buzz going strong. While it’s hard to tell if the whole track will be all music truth, this clip is definitely leading up to…something. Guess we’ll have to wait and see when ’74 is the new 24′ hits headphones everywhere in June. Check out the clip below…

While the clip’s storyline is still under wraps, it should be released just in time when the perky pair hit the stage at the Billboard Music Awards on May 17th….
