Nile Rodgers & Chic Release New Album

By RawKeith / September 28, 2018

One of musics, most influential producer/songwriter is back with the group that made him a household name is back with some new music. Chic has released  It’s About Time. This is the band's first full length album in 25 years.

Speaking about the record Rodgers said, “Right now the world feels the same way as when CHIC started. CHIC promised good times, a way out, a new world even when things looked bleak. In the middle of chaos, certain songs can make you feel triumphant. I’m not denying things have gone apocalyptic, but we might be safest on the dance floor with the likes of Cosha, Mura Masa, Stefflon Don and Vic Mensa.”

Do you want some guest appearances? Well, I am sure you will recognize some of these names. Lady Gaga, Hailee Steinfeld, Emeil Sande, and the legendary Elton John are just a few of the artists that will appear on the album.

You can check the track Sober, which features Craig David and Stefflon Don below. It is kind of like a throwback, with the New Jack Swing beat.

Talking about why he chose to make the album now after all this time Nile said, "It’s taken a long time to become the guy I’ve become and I want to express that on an album. It’s my art form, chronicling my thoughts, setting myself up to be scrutinised and criticised, for better or worse and it has to be done right and done right now.’ He adds, ‘I’ve survived cancer twice, it makes you think about your mortality and you do always want to make sure you’re not forgotten. Making an album is a solid tangible thing, it’s making the whole movie, not just making the trailers. I’ve been making a lot of trailers lately, time for what I’ve been trailing!"
