Nile Rodgers spoke to Pitchfork Radio at Coachella and shared that It’s About Time, Chic’s next album, will feature Bruno Mars, Anderson .Paak, Craig David, Stefflon Don, Nao, Mura Masa, and Blondie’s Debbie Harry. Rodgers spoke about how the Bruno Mars collaboration came together: “Anderson .Paak and I—we had a few days, and he was opening for [Bruno Mars] while he was in the U.K. And Bruno was like, ‘Damn, I gotta stop by and hang with y’all.’ So we sat around telling great Prince stories and finally we got down, and Bruno came up with an idea and said, ‘Damn, I wonder why nobody’s done this.’ So we decided to get down and do it.” Last year in April, a video clip of Anderson. Paak, Bruno Mars, Disclosure’s Guy Lawrence and Nile Rodgers in the studio surfaced; however, no music from the studio session has been heard.

Fans have been waiting patiently for Chic’s long-awaited new album since it was put on hold in 2015. It’s About Time will be their first album since 1992. In 2017, Rodgers was hospitalized and later diagnosed with cancer, but has since made a full recovery.
