K-pop girl group Sistar is collaborating with Italian musician and producer Giorgio Moroder on a special project, according to the group’s management agency Starship Entertainment on Wednesday.
An established name in the global music industry, the three-time Academy Award winner received his fourth Grammy Award in 2014 for his contribution to French electronic duo Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories” album.
In addition to working with international pop icons, Moroder wrote the official anthem for the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, “Hand in Hand.”
