Lady GaGa Writes Michael Bolton’s New Tune

Filed under: Popular Music — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 17:32

Metro UK is covering the release of Michael Bolton’s new single, “Murder My Heart” written by none-other-than pop sensation Lady GaGa: “Bolton, 56, said it was Gaga who first approached him. And he was won over in just one listen of her catchy chart-toppers. ‘I was taking a break from production when my manager and the label tag-teamed me on the phone about writing with a young artist named ‘Lady Gaga’ who I had never heard of – but they were raving about – they said that she was a huge fan of mine and wanted to write with me,’ Bolton revealed. ‘No one I knew had heard of her,’ he said. But Bolton was quickly won over: ‘Less than a minute into ‘Just Dance’, I thought ‘this CD is gonna be huge!”‘ He added: ‘When I met her in the studio later that night, I realised she was not only about to have a big hit record but Gaga was a superstar about to launch – her energy was so high and her focus excited me. She reminded me of a young Madonna – with more exuberance and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing.'” Listen below:
