After contributing the lead single to the "Charlie's Angels" soundtrack, Destiny's Child will borrow from another '70s staple on their upcoming album, Survivor. The sultry trio have recorded a rendition of disco dynamos the Bee Gees' "Emotion."
"It's acoustic guitar and everybody has their verse and it is so great how the arrangement is and it's just a great song," singer Beyonce Knowles recently told MTV News. "Thank you for writing that song, Bee Gees. Y'all is tight."
Though Bee Gees Barry and Maurice Gibb penned "Emotion," Australian singer Samantha Sang sang it, with the Bee Gees producing. The song charted in 1978, becoming Sang's only U.S. hit.
Destiny's Child plan on releasing "Emotion" as the third single from Survivor, following the title track and a number titled "Bootylicious," Knowles said. The album, which follows the seven-times platinum The Writing's on the Wall (1999), hits stores May 1.
Meanwhile, the Bee Gees will release This Is Where I Came In, the follow-up to 1997's Still Waters, on April 17.
Destiny's Child are scheduled to perform at the Soul Train Awards on Wednesday (February 28) and will turn up on "The Queen Latifah Show" on Friday. The Texas trio will likely preview new music during a U.S. tour that kicks off March 18 in Farmington, Missouri.
