Interview: Olivia Newton-John & Chloe Lattanzi

Join me as I chat with four-time Grammy Award-winner Olivia Newton-John and her daughter, singer/songwriter Chloe Lattanzi who recently released their new duet, “Window in the Wall.”

The music video immediately shot up to the top of iTunes Music Videos chart for several days as the single went viral.

“I’ve always recording duets and singing harmonies,” says Olivia. “I had no plans to record at the time, but I knew from the second i heard the song I wanted to record it with Chloe.”

Amid today’s current turbulence and chaos, Olivia and Chloe say they really felt connected with the song and its message of hope, love and understanding.

“When my mom played the song for me I knew I wanted to record it, not only because it was with my mom but, I felt the lyrics and message might help people see things from another perspective,” says Chloe. “We are all part of the same human race and if we listen to each other, respect each other and love each other – for both our likenesses and our differences – we might just understand each other a lot more.”

Released the same week that President Biden took office, the new single is an anthem aimed to unify and heal during these unprecedented times in the world.

Produced by six-time Grammy Award-winner Dave Cobb, “Window in the Wall” is not the first time this mother/daughter team has hit the recording studio.

Their debut single, “You Have to Believe,” a remake of Newton-John’s #1 single “Magic” from Xanadu, with additional lyrics by Lattanzi, was released in 2015 and reached number 1 on the Billboard Dance Club Play Chart.
