Iconic pop songstress Debbie Gibson has released “One Step Closer”- co-written with Grammy Award-winning DJ / Producer Tracy Young. This dance floor-ready bop blends modern sounds with a nod to disco, and is a perfect addition to your summer playlist. Listen to “One Step Closer” HERE
“One Step Closer” is the opening track off the pop legend’s long-awaited new pop album ‘The Body Remembers,’ out on August 20th via (STARGIRL RECORDS)—her first in 20 years. Pre-order the album here.
‘The Body Remembers’ is a start of a new chapter for Gibson as each song represents a visceral account of her life in the past decade. Ranging from themes of romantic love, self worth, unrequited love, and the current world landscape, each song on this album was carefully crafted and shows off the quintessential aspect of Gibson’s legendary legacy, her songwriting. Rolling Stone stated, “The time is right for Debbie Gibson to finally get her due as a pioneer. She invented the whole concept of a teenage girl writing and producing her own Number One hits, singing about her own feelings, at a time when the music world scoffed at the idea.“
This album is Gibson’s most authentic yet, with her venturing into a new lyrical and musical landscape. It is filled with a mix of modern pop hooks and upbeat club bangers along with melodic yet nostalgic tracks that pay homage to her earlier music. ‘The Body Remembers’ represents all things Debbie: empowerment, living your best life, and staying eternally electric. Stay tuned for more!
