Australian pop darling Samantha Jade today releases her third studio album Best Of My Love through Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Best Of My Love is a shimmering homage to the disco era, filled with tributes to iconic greats such as Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor, Cher, Diana Ross and many more. For a limited time, fans can also purchase an autographed copy of Jade's Collector's Edition via her web store now, which includes the CD alongside an exclusive full-colour photo book.
As many contemporary artists alongside Samantha Jade can attest, disco kick-started the modern era of dance-based popular music. Best Of My Love journeys through some of the pinnacle moments in this era, from ABBA's Dancing Queen (1976) to The Bee Gees' How Deep Is Your Love (1977), to Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive (1978) and Donna Summer's Hot Stuff (1979), as well as Diana Ross' Upside Down and I'm Coming Out (1980). Samantha Jade also pays homage to the ground-breaking songwriters and producers behind the hits, including Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of Chic, Giorgio Moroder, and Clifton Davis.

Best Of My Love features brand new original material from Samantha Jade, including Roller Skates and Let Me Love You. Roller Skates (from UK dance trio Knoxa) is an original glittering upbeat pop smash, borrowing influences from tropical house and disco genres. The disco throwback Let Me Love You, written by renowned song writing duo DNA Songs, was inspired by Australia's recent Equality Campaign. The album ends on a high with the dancefloor-ready Best of My Love (2018 Mix).
Samantha comments on the record, "Best Of My Love was such a fun record to make. I hope it reignites the passion for all disco lovers and helps tell the story of this exciting genre to a whole new audience that may not have experienced the lifestyle first-hand. It's such an honour to pay homage to iconic divas like Donna Summer, Cher and Diana Ross. I've always been inspired by disco, soul, funk, and dance, particularly the female voices that emerged during this time.
