Nile Rodgers Promises More Work with Daft Punk
Published Jul 10, 2013Working with Pharrell and Daft Punk, acclaimed disco and R&B guitarist Nile Rodgers just may have helped win the esteemed song of summer status with the beloved "Get Lucky" single. In addition to appearing on two other songs from the French robot duo's Random Access Memories, Rodgers has now revealed plans to work with them once again.
Speaking with DJAZZtv [via Consequence of Sound], Rodgers explained that he's working on completing some recently unearthed archival recordings, including unreleased solo material and work with his old band Chic. If all goes as planned, Daft Punk will complete at least one of the songs with him.
Here's the full statement, from the video that can be viewed below:
I found in the Warner tape library, some old, unreleased Chic masters that didn't belong to them that were in boxes that said Chic, but when you opened them up they had Johnny Mathis inside, my film scores, they had Nile Rodgers solo tracks, they had Chic tracks that were not designed for any project except for the guys working with me writing songs. So, I'm going to finish that, and this is an exclusive: Daft Punk wants to do at least one of them with me, so that should be very cool, because they respect the music. They understand.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
