Nile Rodgers‘ CHIC returned yesterday with “I’ll Be There,” its first single since 1992, enlisting none other than Karlie Kloss for the track’s music video. Debuted via Facebook to coincide with the vernal equinox, the funky cut’s video was directed by super duo Inez and Vinoodh and sees Kloss dancing around in her underwear — while CHIC appears on Soul Train — before heading out to meet up with Stephen Galloway at a disco party where the band’s current lineup just so happens to be performing. Said Rodgers on Facebook:
#WorldPremiere!! #IllBeThere is a moving concept for me about decisions we make in life. We’ve tried to capture all the nuances in the full length video and still keep it fun. Karlie Kloss connects the past and present.
“I’ll Be There” can be downloaded now via iTunes while the band’s upcoming LP It’s About Time is due out later this year.
