Listen: Disclosure & Nile Rodgers Get ‘Together’ for All-Star Dance Track
Rodgers, whose comeback year was jump-started when he collaborated with Daft Punk on 2013′s summer smash “Get Lucky,” revealed earlier this year that Disclosure was among the artists he was working with this year, along with marquee DJs like David Guetta and Avicii.
The slow-burning track showcases vocalist Sam Smith, who collaborated with Disclosure previously on their breakout hit, “Latch.” Songwriter Jimmy Napes (who helped pen “Latch”) is also in the mix on “Together.”
Disclosure’s debut album, Settle, made it to the shortlist of nominees for this year’s Mercury Prize alongside such releases as David Bowie’s The Next Day and Arctic Monkeys latest, AM. The award went to alt-R&B crooner James Blake’s sophomore full-length, Overgrown.
Rodgers recently held his first Reddit AMA, where he talked about an upcoming Chic released featuring recently-unearthed studio sessions from years long past.
“It’s a really long story and the music is still very close to my heart,” he said. “I do know that Daft Punk will work on one of the songs, but I’m not sure I want it all to come out at once. I think you understand. It’s the one chance I get to play with my bandmates who have passed on. Sometime it’s fun to just jam with it and not have it be judged as a commercial project.”
