Guitarist and songwriter is recording new song with Chic

Nile Rodgers has announced that Chic are working on a new track, featuring “almost everyone” he has ever worked with.

The guitarist and producer has worked with the likes of Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, Disclosure and Avicii in recent years, with David Bowie, Madonna and Duran Duran also collaborating with him in the past.

Tweeting about the potential for the track, Rodgers wrote: “I’m just finishing up a new song for Chic that’s going to feature almost everybody that’s ever sung with me. I can’t wait to do that session.”

The news comes after Nile Rodgers said late in 2013 that “if I wound up getting a Number One Chic record next year I may consider that the greatest day of my life, in a life that has had a lot of great days”. Chic have never managed to hit the Number One spot in the UK, although 1978 single ‘Le Freak’ and 1979’s ‘Good Times’ both topped the US Billboard Singles Chart.

Meanwhile, Rodgers and Chic performed ‘Get Lucky’, his collaboration with Daft Punk, for the first time at a live show in France over the weekend. Click here to watch their performance now.
