Big Name Acts Come Calling For Luciana Caporaso

Richard Vission & Static Revenger Starring Luciana Caporaso

Luciana Caporaso spoke with Sydney’s Star Observer, where the UK singer discussed Madonna’s ‘Give Me All Your Love’ demo, her own single ‘I’m Still Hot’, lining up another guest spot on Tiesto’s track ‘Wicked Workout’, and creating material for No Doubt, Maroon 5, Nicki Minaj and Willow Smith.

“Everybody wants a bit of ‘I Like That’, but it’s really hard to re-create,” the 33-year-old said. “With No Doubt and Maroon 5, they’re just looking for choruses, so you can collaborate vicariously via filesharing, and if they like that, they might get you into the studio to expand on it.”

Luciana Caporaso Bored With Albums

Richard Vission & Static Revenger Starring Luciana

Luciana Caporaso spoke with Boston’s Edge magazine in a Q&A, where she talked about how her career has been non-stop since moving to America, the new single ‘I’m Still Hot’, feeling she’s “a gay man trapped in a woman’s body”, how she finds time to get in the studio, her “Isha CoCo” alter ego, and a possible collaboration with Cazwell. “It’s really funny because I don’t want to put an album out,” she said about new material. “I get really bored with albums, ie. 12 songs. I’m thinking like putting 6 songs out, an EP. And then once that happens, put out another 6 songs. That’s the plan anyway.”

Luciana: Albums Far Too Long, Will Release EP Instead

Richard Vission & Static Revenger Starring Luciana

Luciana Caporaso sat down with unWIREDTV for a discussion, where the artist talked about her single ‘I Like That’, teaming up with Richard Vission, her 12-year run to be an “overnight sensation” and what kept her going, collaborating with Betty White, and what she thinks about albums.

“You know what, I get really bored listening to albums,” Luciana said. “I think 12 songs is far too long. Yeah, I get really, really bored. So what I’m going to do is bring out an EP. Like 6 songs, straight bang dance music. Put it on. Put your makeup on before you go out or come back from the club and listen to it in the car, or wherever you listen to it, but it doesn’t get boring.”
