Nile Rodgers has been hard at work on some new material over the past few months, and it’ll all culminate in a brand new Chic album sometime in 2015.
It will be the first new release from Chic in nearly 25 years, the most recent being 1992’s Chic-ism.
The news was reported by Broadway World, which also revealed that Rodgers and the band will play Sir Elton John‘s exclusive Academy Awards viewing party on Sunday, February 22.
Signed to Warner Bros. Records, Nile is currently preparing the first new CHIC album in nearly 25 years and will take CHIC on the road throughout 2015 following the March 20 release of the first single “I’ll Be There.”
So, to recap: new Chic album sometime this year, new single dropping in March, and Chic’s playing Elton John’s fancy Oscars party. Not a bad way to kick off 2015!
