Ahead of the February 18 release of Red Bull Music Academy’s film What Difference Does It Make?, one of the documentary’s participants, comeback-kid producer Giorgio Moroder, took part in an interview where he coyly dodged a question about working on Lana Del Rey‘s upcoming LP Ultraviolence.

“I cannot mention the name now because the contracts are not signed, but I’m going to work in the next few days with a very great singer. A great singer,” Moroder said to Digital Spy. “And if you call me in a few weeks I might be able to tell you what it is! It’s one of my all-time favorite singers.”

When asked directly if he’ll be getting any studio time with Del Rey, the 73-year-old musician stated, “I don’t know? Did you read something about that? Well… I have a few singers I’m planning to work with. In fact I started to work a little bit with David Guetta. So… do you know? It’s difficult to answer the rumors, but… maybe. Maybe. I don’t know.”

Moroder clearly keeps up with the charts, as he went on to sing the praises of pop divas du jour like Lady Gaga and Katy Perry.

“I think Miley Cyrus is very talented too,” he added. “Apart from the visuals, which you may like or not like, but her music is quite good actually. ‘Wrecking Ball’ is quite a good song and she sang it really nicely.”

Meanwhile, Lana Del Rey recently blurted out (on video) to a fan that her upcoming album Ultraviolence will be released on May 1. “It’s so good that it made me forget about the last record,” she said. “I’m in love with it, there’s something about it.”

Do you think Lana’s LP will have little Moroder magic on it when all is said and done?
