It’s been 26 long years since the last one, but finally Nile Rodgers & CHIC are on the verge of releasing a new album. ‘It’s About Time’ will drop mid September but we don’t have to wait as long as that to hear the new CHIC sound as the first single to be taken from it went online last week.
‘Til The World Falls’, features Vic Mensa, Mura Masa, and Cosha (fka Bonzai) and brings that classic CHIC disco sound right up to date. The CHIC sound is alive and kicking in 2018 and I for one am super happy about that.
This weekend (30th and 1st July) CHIC & Nile Rodgers headline the FIESTA x FOLD festival in Glasgow and will be joined by an impressive lineup if great acts including the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire, De la Soul, Emeli Sande, Goldfrapp and The Pointer Sisters. The forecast for this weekend is SCORCHING and I cannot think of a better soundtrack to a sunny weekend than one provided by CHIC, can you?
Limited weekend tickets for FIESTA x FOLD are still available here.
