Nile Rodgers said a new Chic album will be out during the year. Speaking on Sunday before his performance at the Mawazine Festival in the Moroccan capital of Rabat, the 64-year-old group leader and seminal pop producer said the album, It’s About Time, was born out of writing sessions with current big pop names. With the album being Chic’s first in 25 years, the aim of such collaborations was to make a timely record as opposed to one that retreats back into Chic’s former funk glories.
“I don’t want the album to be just a tribute to Chic. I still continued to grow and kept writing new music. Thank God I met people like Avicii, Lady Gaga, Daft Punk and Pharrell and we all keep writing music,” he said. “I also wrote the lyrics. You know, I don’t want to live in the past but it is a nice place to visit.” On that note, Rodgers is looking forward to Chic’s North American tour with Earth, Wind and Fire which kicks off in California on July 13.
