Following the release of his international smash album Guetta Blaster in America and a high-profile appearance at this year’s Coachella (USA Today tapped him as one of the key highlights of the festival), France’s DAVID GUETTA returns to the U.S. with new album POP LIFE. The 14 tracks on the album--due October 9, 2007 via Perfecto/Ultra Records--underline Guetta as an artist who aims to move hearts and minds on the dancefloor and the Top 40.

Hitting the ground running with two huge tracks--“Love Is Gone” featuring Chris “Just A Little More Love” Willis on vocals and “Baby When The Light”--Pop Life features an exciting, brand new selection of songs written by Guetta and first-time collaborations with co-writers like Cathy Dennis (Kylie Minogue) and Karen Poole (Jamelia/Girls Aloud/Lily Allen). The album’s first single "Love Is Gone" is scorching dancefloors across Europe and in the U.S. it’s currently ranking at #7 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay chart. Not far behind at #14 is "The World Is Mine," Guetta’s club classic from Guetta Blaster; the track continues to rank on the chart after debuting on April 2.

Pop Life—which is Guetta’s fastest-selling album to date in his native country peaking at #2--is fittingly titled since he is the one DJ who knows pop isn’t a dirty word and whose club nights are open to one and all. “Yeah, some DJs say pop is a dirty word, but I’m trying to be different!” he says. “Of course dance music is pop music! I’m always faithful to my community, but this album also has big, quality pop melodies. It’s the best album I’ve produced. I’m really happy and proud of it.”

Currently David Guetta is in Europe promoting the August 20 release of Pop Life in the U.K. and Europe including appearances at his weekly “F*** Me I’m Famous” residency at Pacha in Ibiza. Pop Life is already garnering great press in overseas publications:

“An album that will sound as good on the radio as in a club” –- Q

“Along with cool acts like Daft Punk, superstar DJ David Guetta has helped give France an impeccable reputation for dance music.” –- Glamour

“One of the most sought-after names in dance music” --The London Paper

“An impressive dance crossover album with mass pop appeal” -– AXM

“Guetta’s new album promises to reserve the DJ/producer a spot inside the top 10 into the fourth quarter this year.” -- Music Week

“He’s Paris’s best kept secret but not anymore. If your foot hasn’t been tapping along to “Love Is Gone,” it will be very soon.” -- Grazia
