Sam Smith has released a new interpretation of Donna Summer‘s classic 1977 disco track, “I Feel Love.”

Produced by Guy Lawrence (Disclosure) Smith’s version will be featured in Target’s holiday campaign.

“As a queer person ‘I Feel Love’ has followed me to every dance floor in every queer space from the minute I started clubbing,” Smith wrote on Twitter.

“This song to me is an anthem of our community and it was an honor and most importantly so much fun to have a go at it.” The singer added, “Highest song I’ve ever fucking sang. But a joy. I hope you all like it.”

This follows the release of Smith’s most recent single “How Do You Sleep?” back in July, and the confirmation that a pop-driven follow-up to their 2017 album, The Thrill Of It All will arrive next year.

In September, Smith revealed that they are asking fans to refer to the singer as “they” and not “he” after coming out as non-binary.

“I understand there will be many mistakes and mis-gendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you,” they wrote at the time.
