The Recording Academy Announces “Stayin’ Alive: A GRAMMY® Salute To The Music Of The Bee Gees” at Microsoft Theater
Last week, Capitol Records released the Bee Gees’ “Stayin’ Alive (Serban Mix).”Serban worked from new, high-resolution audio files transferred from the original “Stayin’ Alive” sessions and brings a fresh urgency to the recording. “Stayin’ Alive (Serban Mix)” is available HERE.
An eight-time GRAMMY winner, Serban (Beyoncé, The Weeknd, Beck) has more than 140 No. 1 singles and albums to his credit. The new mix was mastered by award winning, New York-based mastering engineer Tom Coyne (Adele, Beyoncé, Sam Smith).
Released in December 1977, “Stayin’ Alive” topped charts around the world and spent four consecutive weeks at No. 1on Billboard’s Hot 100. The Bee Gees wrote and recorded the song for Saturday Night Fever. “Stayin’ Alive” played during the opening credits, setting the tone for the film with its searing mixture of swagger and desperation. Rolling Stone named “Stayin’ Alive” as one of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2004 and 2010. AllMusic said, “The enduring power of ‘Stayin’ Alive’ proves that it is not only one of the Bee Gees’ finest hits but also one of the all-time dance-pop classics.”
