Announces First Chic Album in Over 20 Years
The past year has been a remarkable one for Mr. Rodgers. After co-enjoying the breakout hit Lucky with Daft Punk and Pharrell, Nile Rodgers seemed to be on top of the moon. And with a stellar look at his life with TV One‘s Unsung, we really connected with soul-guitar-funk man in ways we hadn’t before. Then of course came the saddening news of his Aunt Mabel’s death, we saw how the legend gracefully talked about grieving and the lift after death.
Well today there is good news to share! After more than 20 years, Nile Rodgers and his band Chic announced that they will be releasing a new album this year! Planning to release it in June, the single is debuting in March. Sticking to a traditional publicity schedule, Rodgers is laying out the case for the album and getting the buzz going!
One juicy bit of news being told: the album will be recorded with a live band in true disco/jazz/R&B fashion. Read more about it after the jump.
