LCD Soundsystem has partnered up with Spotify on their latest release. The two-track acoustic EP follows the usual format of a Spotify Singles release, including an acoustic in-studio version of one of the band’s tracks as well as a cover. For this session, LCD recorded a new version of “Tonite,” a single released last year on their long awaited comeback album American Dream. But of course, since electronic elements are so engrained in LCD’s style, this seemingly stripped back version of the track still includes its integral synthesized elements. Following “Tonite” is a mash up of sorts, where the band works their own 2010 track “Home” together with Chic‘s “I Want Your Love.” This time, the track takes on a groovier new personality with the homage paid to the iconic Nile Rodgers-led funk band.

Both tracks were recorded in New York City’s iconic Electric Lady Studios.

Nile Rodgers named Chairman of Songwriters’ Hall Of FameNile Rodgers Hospitalised

Following in the footsteps of previous co-chairs, Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff, Nile Rodgers will immediately begin a three-year term as the Chairman of the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame (SHOF). The SHOF formally announced Rodgers as the group’s new Chairman on July 2.

“Nile is respected and admired by his fans and his peers alike for his multi/cross-genre music and for being a musical pioneer,” the Hall of Fame’s president and CEO Linda Moran said of Rodgers. “More importantly, Nile’s eloquence in talking about songwriting and its process makes him the ideal voice for the songwriting community as chairman of the SHOF,” Moran added.

“I will try and serve with all my heart,” Rodgers said, “I hope I can make you half as proud of me as I am to even sit in the room with you who’ve done so much for the furtherance of composition.”

Rodgers was inducted to the SHOF in 2016, and to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017.

Disco funk legend Nile Rodgers announced mid-June that he and his storied band Chic had a new album on the way, the band’s first effort in 26 years. Modern day maestros of the genre — and a few unassuming additions — were enlisted for the making of the record, including Anderson .Paak, Vic Mensa ,Stefflon Don, and Craig David and now, we’re getting a taste of the madness that’ll ensue with the LP’s first single, “Till The World Falls.”

A tantalizing and glitzy new disco track with a Vic Mensa verse and Mura Masa guest appearance; “Till the World Falls” is a meeting of glorious past and present funk extravagance. Anderson .Paak, NAO, and anaïs each had a hand in the track’s songwriting.

Nile Rodgers & Chic’s record is fittingly titled It’s About Time and will arrive September 7.

Nile Rodgers has proven his knack for writing hit songs over the past five decades, with collabs from Duran Duran to Daft Punk under his belt. Keeping up with the newest names in funky pop music, Rodgers and Chic have taken to the Jools Holland show on BBC Two with Mura Masa and NAO to premiere their funky new track, “Boogie All Night.”

NAO acts as the main vocalist on the track, pairing her breathy, high-energy vocals with Rodgers’ classic guitar riffs. Mura Masa also takes the stage wielding a guitar, holding his own against the funk and disco legend. With a new album from Nile Rodgers and Chic set to arrive later this year, there is no telling what kind of groovy collaborations will be seen.
