Nile Rodgers has revealed that he has collaborated with Chase and Status.
Writing on Twitter, the producer – who worked with Daft Punk on their huge hit single ‘Get Lucky’ earlier this year – said he had been in the studio with the drum and bass producers working on a new track. “Composed a song w/ drum n bass gurus @chaseandstatus earlier this year which I’ll finish tonight,” he wrote, in addition to publishing a photograph of them in the studio together.
Chase and Status are set to release their new studio album ‘Brand New Machine’ on October 7. Their third LP, it follows their 2008 debut ‘More Than Alot’ and the 2011 follow-up ‘No More Idols’, and will be preceded by the single ‘Count On Me’ ft Moko on September 29 – click below to hear the song.
Last month, meanwhile, Rodgers revealed that he had been given the all-clear from prostate cancer. The Chic man was diagnosed with the disease in 2010, and recently claimed that the success of ‘Get Lucky’ helped him overcome the illness. “I was facing life and death issues and then to get something so rewarding as a Number One record is pretty amazing,” he said.
“I think this particular experience rates very high, because two years ago I was stricken with cancer just right out of the clear blue sky. And from that moment I decided I was going to work as much as I could, play as many concerts, do as many records, because that’s what I live for.”
