Gloria Gaynor’s perennial and iconic worldwide smash “I Will Survive” has received the special modern remix treatment by dance music producer Eric Kupper. On June 12, 2020, “I Will Survive (The Eric Kupper Remixes),” featuring three new remixes, will be released as a digital EP by UMe.
Written by Freddie Perren and Dino Fekaris and originally released in October 1978, the chart-topping single was destined to be a B-Side for the song “Substitute.” But the astute Gaynor saw the powerful potential in the track and the song found its audience. “‘I Will Survive’ has become an anthem around the globe for people facing challenges and tragedies in their life,” says Gaynor. “And now more than ever, we need to help each other and provide encouragement and inspiration through music whenever possible.”
Brad LeBeau, of PRO MOTION. The Brad LeBeau Company. Inc., which commissioned the remixes and is also involved in marketing the Pop/Disco classic, and was the Executive Remix Producers for the recently released Diana Ross remix album, Supertonic, stated, “With four consecutive #1* Billboard dance charting singles to his credit, Kupper was the obvious choice to remix Gloria Gaynor’s signature single.”
“I’m extremely happy that UMe has enlisted the world-renowned producer and deejay Eric Kupper to remix ‘I Will Survive’ for a 2020 Summer release,” Gaynor adds.
