Chic’s New Album Features Lady Gaga.

Pioneering disco group Chic’s comeback album sounds promising. Co-founder and bassist Nile Rodgers tells The Washington Post that the record will feature Lady Gaga, Janelle Monae and Miguel. Nile prepped the album while writing and producing for Duran Duran’s Paper Gods and lead single “Pressure Off” features Janelle — the first time that Nile worked with her. He also directed Gaga’s Grammy Awards tribute to David Bowie​, after having produced 1983’s Let’s Dance. Meanwhile, he and Miguel are “brothers in soul.” Don’t expect Chic’s album to come out anytime soon, though. The group is on tour with Duran Duran until August 3.
