A new Donna Summer compilation on the way

On April 20, Island Def Jam/UMe is set to release Summer: The Original Hits, a companion to Summer: The Donna Summer Musical, an exciting new Broadway musical based on the late disco diva and pop/R&B singer's life.

Previews for Summer: The Donna Summer Musical commenced on March 28, at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City with the official opening on April 23.

Summer’s influential work is given a fresh, respectful update with two rare remixes headed by renowned Grammy-nominated remix producer Ralphi Rosario: “MacArthur Park (Rosabel’s Radio Mix),” a No. 1 Dance hit in 2013, and “Hot Stuff,” a new rework in collaboration with Erick Ibiza, that debuts on this collection. Another rarity on the collection is Summer’s German-language rendition of “White Boys” that she recorded while in the German musical cast of Hair.

Even though Summer passed away in 2012, her cultural impact and sonic legacy carries on and she garnered a well-deserved posthumous induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2013.
