Powerhouse entertainer Todrick Hall has recently announced the release of his fifth studio album, Algorhythm, which is set for worldwide release on June 1st via Frtyfve. The lead track from the 80s influenced album is the synth-pop track ‘Dance Forever’.
Todrick Breaks Down the Inspiration For Algorhythm
The album has a definitive sound, with Hall stating: “Algorhythm is an 80s inspired record that while still being on brand with my most popular work, it reveals a side of my voice I have never accessed in my previous music. I want this album to get back to good traditional music, no gimmicks, no smoke and mirrors, just great music, beats and rhythms. My goal is not to create a replica of 80s music, but an evolution of my music infused with 80s nostalgic instrumentation.”
Algorhythm Serves Up The Best The 80s Has To Offer
Featuring fluorescent synths and accompanied by Todrick’s rich soulful vocals, ‘Dance Forever’ is the glittery descendent of Prince and The Revolution’s Purple Rain album and Patti Labelle’s ‘New Attitude’. The track is produced by Jeeve, who has worked with Giorgio Moroder and previously produced Todrick’s well-received 2021 album, Femuline.
The anthemic track, co-written by Todrick, is all about living in the moment and getting lost in the rapture of dance.
“This song, while strongly inspired by the 80s, is a timeless dance song that makes you want to get up and move the second you reach the first pre-chorus,” said Todrick. “I wanted to feel like you put Paula Abdul, with a touch of Prince and a sprinkle of Michael Jackson or Disney’s Powerline in a musical blender.”
He adds, “I also wanted to create a song that all ages could enjoy. I hope to see this song on dance television shows, in kids dance recitals and movies. I’m very excited for the world to put movement to the first song of the new Todrick era.”
Algorhythm Is a Continuation Of Todrick Hall’s Musical Evolution
Known for his charisma and high-octane stage presence, Todrick is a versatile modern-day entertainer and recording artist with over 800 million YouTube views to his name. Over the past decade, Hall has starred in several Broadway smashes, collaborated with Beyoncé, and co-executive produced the award-winning music video for Taylor Swift, the LGBTQ+ anthem ‘You Need To Calm Down’.
