Avicii has been enlisted by Rock Hall of Famer Nile Rodgers to help produce the forthcoming Chic album.
The Swedish producer, who famously announced his hiatus from touring in March of 2016, has hinted at his own 2017 full-length release as well. However, his website has seen little updates since the early April revamp.
Rodgers is no stranger to massive cross-over collaborations; the guitarist was an integral element to the success of Daft Punk’s 2013 hit ‘Get Lucky’. Rodgers and Avicii, along with Adam Lambert, formerly collaborated on ‘Lay Me Down’ from Avicii’s solo debut ‘True’.
The new Chic full-length offering is expected to be released before 2017 is over.
