Nile Rodgers will be collaborating with Daft Punk again to complete previously unreleased Chic and solo material, he has revealed. Rodgers, the Chic guitarist and dance music pioneer, loaned his talents to Daft Punk on their Random Access Memories hit “Get Lucky,” which he helped write and record.
Rodgers told DJAZZtv that he recently discovered unreleased masters in the Warner Music tape library that include personal solo tracks, film scores and Chic material, along with “Chic tracks that were not designed for any project except for the guys working with me writing songs,” he explained. The guitarist/producer says that he plans to finish and release some of the tracks and that Daft Punk will be part of the process.
“Daft Punk wants to do at least one of them with me, so that should be very cool,” Rodgers said. “Because they respect the music. They understand.”
