The Queen is Back Legendary Singer Songwriter -- Donna Summer is Back With a New Studio Album --Crayons in Stores May 2008 on Burgundy Records/Sony BMG

Tuesday February 26, 6:00 am ET

NEW YORK, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Legendary singer songwriter, DONNA SUMMER, is hard at work on her first studio album of all new material in 17 years! Crayons is set to release on May 20, 2008 on Sony BMG Music Entertainment's Burgundy Records.

In the thirty plus years that Donna Summer has been making music she has never confined her artistry to just one genre. Although Donna is, and will always be, "The Queen Of Disco" to many fans, her hits have spanned multiple musical genres from Rock to R&B to Inspirational and of course, Dance.

Summer helped to define the 70's pop music generation and Crayons will have all the characteristics that made Donna an icon. Containing a potent mix of the up-tempo tunes and ballads, the new album showcases incredible new material that is written by Donna (who wrote or co-wrote the majority of her hits of the 70's and 80's). Working with Donna are renowned writers and producers including: Greg Kurstin (Lilly Allen, Pink), Danielle Brisebois (Natasha Bedingfield, New Radicals), JR Rotem (Sean Kingston, Rihanna), Evan Bogart (co-writer of Rihanna's smash "SOS" and the son of legendary record executive, Casablanca Records founder and Donna's mentor, Neil Bogart), and Lester Mendez (Shakira, Santana).

Donna describes the background of the title Crayons and the aesthetic of the album as "a menagerie of colors and styles, with hints of different ethnic traditions and sounds. My dream is that when people hear the music it will remind them of their youth, their childhood and the joy and wonderment they felt exploring their first pack of Crayons."

Donna's long list of musical accomplishments include: 14 #1 Billboard singles, 12 Gold and Platinum singles, 5 Grammy Awards, 6 American Music Awards, 2 Double Platinum albums, 1 Platinum album, 8 Gold albums. Her song "Last Dance" won both Oscar and Golden Globe awards.

Donna's "Firsts":

-- FIRST female singer to have a #1 album and #1 single on the Billboard

charts simultaneously - a feat she accomplished again just a few months

later, breaking her own record.

-- FIRST artist to have three #1 double albums on the Billboard charts

consecutively with Live and More , Bad Girls, and On the Radio (she

still remains the only female artist and solo act with this

accomplishment).

-- FIRST female solo artist with three #1 hits in a one year period,

topping the charts with the singles "Hot Stuff," "Bad Girls" and "No

More Tears (Enough Is Enough)" - a duet with Barbara Streisand.

-- FIRST artist to achieve Gold status with a 12 inch for her single "No

More Tears (Enough Is Enough)."

-- FIRST artist ever to be given a Grammy for the category "Best Rock

Female Vocal Performance" for her Platinum single "Hot Stuff."

-- FIRST artist ever to be given a Grammy for the category "Best Dance

Recording" for her song "Carry On."

-- FIRST group of artists to be inducted into the Dance Music Hall of Fame

in 2004, alongside The Bee Gees and Barry White.
