When Daft Punk recruited and to work on Random Access Memories, the robots no doubt knew that a renewed interest in the iconic artists’ disco sounds would soon follow. To wit: Rolling Stone has just premiered the first single from Love to Love You Donna, a remix record featuring new takes on classic cuts from Donna Summer. The record drops October 22, with a and -produced rework of 1982’s “Love is in Control (Pull the Trigger)” as the lead single.

Chromeo and Oliver’s remix retains the song’s ‘80s edge; the vocals are, appropriately, left intact, but a new bassline and fuller overall production help to modernize “Love is in Control.” The accompanying video includes classic Summer footage, big hair, Spandex and all.

The second single from the 12-track Love to Love You Donna release is one we’ve heard before: Giorgio Moroder’s own rework of Summer’s 1975 smash “Love to Love You Baby.” The track marked the first time she collaborated with Moroder, and influenced the courses of both disco and electronic music. While the full tracklist for Love to Love You Donna has yet to be released, the album is available for pre-order now.
