Nile Rodgers and Chic saw the release of It’s About Time today after a 26-year hiatus. Elton John, Craig David and Lady Gaga are among the artists making guest appearances on the album. Lady Gaga covered “I Want Your Love” for Tom Ford’s 2016 Spring/Summer fashion show and it is now available on Chic’s new album. Original members Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson have passed since Chic’s 1992 album Chic-ism. Rodgers, who is behind some of the biggest songs of the past 40 years as a member of Chic and as a producer and writer for Diana Ross, Madonna and others re-entered the mainstream in 2013 with Daft Punk and Pharrell on the hit song “Get Lucky.” It’s About Time stays true to the Chic sound without sounding like a period piece. The band will go on tour in December.

Liam Bailey Returns With Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her (Audio)

 

Liam Bailey returns with his new single, “Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her” after coming off Paloma Faith’s Architect Tour. Bailey worked with longtime collaborator Maverick Sabre on his new single that came from a recently ended personal relationship. The English singer stated in a press release: 

I was inspired to write the song after getting out of a long and painful situation that I was in with someone. We loved something other than ourselves and it led to a toxic place. I didn’t mean to write the song, I just let things go in the studio and see what happened. I have known and worked with Maverick Sabre for years, and it was a blessing to work with him on this record.”

It was eight years ago when Bailey emerged as an artist on Amy Winehouse’s Lioness Records. Their connection was responsible for the release of Bailey’s first two EPs. “Brother, Why You Gotta Love Her” is from Bailey’s fourth EP coming out November 9th and it follows his 2014 debut album, Definitely Now
