Nile Rodgers Worked With Pharrell Williams For New Chic Album

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
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.

The disco legend is just the seventh recipient of the Cleveland, Ohio institution’s Award for Musical Excellence. The ceremony took place on April 7 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Williams and Rodgers’ ubiquitous collaboration with Daft Punk, ‘Get Lucky’, topped charts worldwide in 2013. The pair performed it together at the following year’s BRIT Awards in a medley with ‘Good Times’ and Pharrell’s ‘Happy’.

In December, Rodgers’ band Chic announced that they would release their first album in 25 years, It’s About Time, sometime in 2017. Chic were nominated but not chosen for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction this year; instead, Rodgers was awarded the rare Award for Musical Excellence. The decision was widely seen to be a hangover of the “Disco Sucks” movement, and in response Rodgers described himself to Rolling Stone as “happy, but perplexed”. Check out Pharrell’s complete Speech for Nile Rodgers Lifetime Achievement Award below.

Nile Rodgers On ‘Sway In The Morning’ Talks Pharrell & The Blurred Lines Lawsuit


The legendary Nile Rodger joins Sway In The Morning to drop musical gems as he speaks on the legacy of Chic, Pharrell and Blurred Lines Lawsuit, check it out from 8:35.

Nile Rodgers Talks ‘Blurred Lines’ Case

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
In the months following a ruling that determined Robin Thicke, T.I. and Pharrell Williams copied Marvin Gaye’sGot To Give It Up” in their 2013 hit “Blurred Lines“, many have questioned how the case will affect future compositions. In speaking with The Financial Times in March, Williams said the decision “handicaps” any artist who makes something out of inspiration of a previous creation.

“If we lose our freedom to be inspired, we’re going to look up one day and the entertainment industry as we know it will be frozen in litigation,” he said. Last month, British music producer Mark Ronson added an additional five writing credits to his chart-topping hit “Uptown Funk” in response to The Gap Band claiming similarities between the track and their 1979 funk anthem “Oops, Up Side Your Head.” So has the “Blurred Lines” case forever altered the music business for musicians? The answer, according to legendary musician-producer Nile Rodgers, is no.

Pharrell & Co. To Play At The ‘Nile Rodgers’ Music Festival

Image Hosted by UploadHouse.com
By Will Robinson. Nile Rodgers seems like the coolest guy ever, so it only makes sense he grabbed cool people to headline his music festival. The legendary songsmith posted on his Facebook page Tuesday night that he’ll be hosting a music festival at Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead, N.Y. called FreakOutLet’sDance (FOLD, if you will, as Rodgers wishes) on Aug. 4 and 5.

The announced lineup easily fits into Rodgers’ overwhelming ethos of awesome: Pharrell, Beck, Janelle Monae, Chaka Khan, Q-Tip, Eric B (With Rakim), Keith Urban, Paloma Faith, The Martinez Brothers, and more. That’s truly an eclectic mix, attractive to many demos. What if all of them get onstage together for a megajam?
