The long talked about collaboration between Nile Rodgers and Daft Punk may finally see the light of day this year.
Rodgers wrote on his website that “2013 Won’t Be Boring!” and included a picture of himself with the two members of Daft Punk. He talked about his connections with Japan, including the death of professional partner Bernard Edwards and his appearance after the earthquake and tsunami in 2011. He followed by saying:
The next time I set foot in Japan, my collaboration with Daft Punk would have started to hit people’s eardrums, as well as a number of songs I’m working on over the next few months with a select group of artists, and of course finally, my lost CHIC and solo material. No matter how it ends, 2013 Won’t Be Boring!
Back in August, the disco-funk veteran told Rolling Stone “The vibe between us is so powerful and so strong. . . For me, spiritually and artistically, working with them was as good as anything I’ve ever done. It’s as great as being in the studio with [David] Bowie. It’s as great as being with Bernard Edwards. It’s as great as the best stuff I’ve ever done with Duran [Duran] or Madonna.”
