Nile Rodgers is hoping to repeat the success of his Get Lucky collaboration with Daft Punk by re-teaming with the French duo to work on a batch of unfinished tracks by his former band Chic. The guitarist lent his signature funk sounds to Get Lucky, which became a hit around the world after its release in April (13) and scored Daft Punk their first number one single in the U.K. charts. Rodgers is now keen to join forces with Daft Punk again after he discovered a collection of long-lost Chic tracks in the Warner Music tape library. In an interview with DJAZZ.tv Rodgers says, "I found in the Warner (Music) tape library some old, unreleased Chic masters that were in boxes that said Chic (on the label) but when you opened it up they had Johnny Mathis inside... my film scores... Nile Rodgers solo tracks (and) Chic tracks that were not designed for any project so I'm (going to) finish (them)... (and) Daft Punk wants to do at least one of them with me, so that should be very cool because they respect the music, they understand."
