Disco guitar legend and producer extraordinaire Nile Rodgers hinted at plans to join forces with Daft Punk once again for our listening pleasure. Hot off the heels of their collaboration with Pharrell on summer anthem “Get Lucky,” the Chic guitarist reveals in a recent interview of another song in the works with the dudes in helmets after finding some long-lost tracks in the Warner tape library. Along with some soundtrack material, Rodgers rediscovered a few unfinished Chic joints that apparently, Daft Punk wants in on. But let’s be honest, what musician wouldn’t want a chance to breathe new life into some classic disco goodness with the man who helped create the sound himself? Nile Rodgers is one of those musicians who has been behind hits for decades and has likely snuck his way into a solid chunk of your library. For a short history of his influence on American popular music, check out this recent BuzzFeed list and watch the video below for the good word straight from the source. Stay tuned for the next iteration of Daft Punk x Nile Rodgers magic because it’s sure to impress.
