About this album

Bad Girls is the eighth album by Donna Summer and her third consecutive double album. It was released in 1979 by Casablanca Records, who had had been distributing her work in the U.S. since 1975, and had more or less had full control over distributing her work worldwide since 1977.

By the time Bad Girls was released, Summer felt that Casablanca were exploiting her. Since the release of her breakthrough, the sexually explicit “Love to Love You Baby”, Summer had been named “the first lady of love” and her record label were keen for her to keep this image up, despite the fact that she was never truly comfortable with it. She was told how to act and dress, and she had generally lost control over her career. Summer became very depressed and suffered with insomnia for a time. She visited healers and began taking tablets to aid her sleep. In early 1979, she collapsed from exhaustion.

Upon Summer’s recovery, her sister took her to see a priest and she became a born-again Christian. The depression came to an end as a result and Summer set to work on her new album with long-time partners Giorgio Moroder and Pete Bellotte, as well as various others she had not worked with before. By this time, although disco music was still popular, other styles such as punk and heavy metal were also achieving well, so the team decided to incorporate a rockier sound into some of the tracks.
