The long (26 years) wait for a new Chic album comes to an end in September.
Along with the release of the new single "Till The World Falls," Nile Rodgers and company have announced a Sept. 14 release for It's About Time, an album Rodgers has been working on -- and talking about -- for years. "I've been doing this one album for such a long time," Rodgers, who's also "pretty far along" on a new stage musical he's writing, told Billboard last year. "It's very reminiscent of Daft Punk's last album; They had been working on it for eight years before I walked into the studio and we did 'Get Lucky.' But this record has to be true to the story arc that is Chic, even though times have changed."
Chic released another single, "I'll Be There," in 2015, but it's not known if that is still slated to be part of It's About Time. Rodgers said that he's collaborated on songs for the set with Lady Gaga, Elton John, Miguel, Janelle Monae, Disclosure and Anderson.Paak, among others, while other songs came from his cancer recovery, the deaths of friends such as Bowie and Prince, and last year's vicious presidential campaign.
