Last August, Nile Rodgers revealed he’d been working with Daft Punk on new music, and in a recent post on his website, the guitarist and producer dropped hints about new material from the electronic duo and previously unheard Chic and solo work.
“The next time I set foot in Japan, my collaboration with Daft Punk would have started to hit people’s eardrums, as well as a number of songs I’m working on over the next few months with a select group of artists, and of course finally, my lost Chic and solo material,” wrote Rodgers, who had spent New Years in Japan. “No matter how it ends, 2013 Won’t Be Boring!” Rodgers also posted a series of pictures, including one featuring him superimposed with Daft Punk.
Even if the new music surfaces this year, it probably won’t be in a live setting. Although there have been rumors that Daft Punk are slated for Coachella, eFestivals reports that the band has told Bestival organizer Rob da Bank they won’t be touring in 2013.
