If Nile Rodgers’ Twitter is to be believed, he and Daft Punk have not collaborated for the last time. Rodgers, who is preparing to release the first new music from Chic in 25 years, shared a still from a short film that Daft Punk has apparently made for the occasion on his Twitter this morning. The message reads simply, “We are sending you this transmission to thank you for all your amazing songs.” The rest of the video remains a mystery, but the single “I’ll Be There” will be released on March 20 (on vinyl!) and it seems likely all will be revealed before then.
Watch a short preview of the single below, featuring clips from Chic on Soul Train.
