Nile Rodgers & Chic enlist Anderson .Paak, Vic Mensa, & Mura Masa for monstrous new disco collaboration, 'Till The World Falls'

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.

“I’ve been blessed with a wonderful career but my creative partnership with David Bowie ranks very very very high on the list of my most important and rewarding collaborations” says Rodgers of the track, “This demo gives you, the fans, a bird’s eye view of the very start of it! I woke up on my first morning in Montreux with David peering over me. He had an acoustic guitar in his hands and exclaimed, ‘Nile, darling, I think this is a HIT!’”

The track, recorded in Montreux, Switzerland in 1982, marks 35 years since the original release of “Let’s Dance” in 1983.
