Chic releasing first new album in 25 years

Chic releasing first new album in 25 years

It has just been announced that Chic will release their first album in 25 years next year and - aptly - the record will be named 'It's About Time'.

The band's enigmatic force Nile Rodgers has released a statement on his blog detailing why he made the decision.

“When Prince suddenly died, it was like I’d been struck by lightning twice. It made me ‘see’ why I named the next Chic album It’s About Time,” Rodgers wrote on his blog. “Time is so important, and what we do with it is everything.

“I flashed upon this fact: 2017 is the 40th anniversary of the world’s most influential disco in history, Studio 54. It’s also the 40th anniversary of Chic. Our song Le Freak became one of Studio 54’s massive anthems.”

I, for one, am gonna freak out.
