Debbie Gibson Exposed a New Fantastic Single “One Step Closer” featured along with an official music video
The new single “One Step Closer” is the opening track off the pop legend’s long-awaited new pop album ‘The Body Remembers,’ out on August 20th via (STARGIRL RECORDS)—her first in 20 years.
Ranging from themes of romantic love, self worth, unrequited love, and the current world landscape, each song on this album was carefully crafted and shows off the quintessential aspect of Gibson’s legendary legacy, her songwriting. Rolling Stone stated, “The time is right for Debbie Gibson to finally get her due as a pioneer. She invented the whole concept of a teenage girl writing and producing her own Number One hits, singing about her own feelings, at a time when the music world scoffed at the idea.“
The album is filled with a mix of modern pop hooks and upbeat club bangers along with melodic yet nostalgic tracks that pay homage to her earlier music. ‘The Body Remembers’ represents all things Debbie: empowerment, living your best life, and staying eternally electric. Stay tuned for more!
The video of the single showcases the timeless elegance and universality of the song as well as the musical chemistry between Debbie & Joey. The original, which Gibson wrote and produced herself, was just spotlighted as part of Stereogum’s “The Number Ones” series.
Gibson appeared in Season 5B of the popular Netflix series “Lucifer,” in a special musical episode entitled “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam,” on May 28.
