Nile Rodgers Reveals Upcoming St Vincent Collaboration
Nile Rodgers has confirmed he’s been in the studio working on new music with St. Vincent.
Rodgers posted a photograph of the pair on his Instagram, writing: “Working on new music with St. Vincent is so real deal” and called the experience “f-g wonderful”, adding, “I’m trying to not lose my mind too!”
In an interview with Rolling Stone last year, Rodgers revealed that he and St Vincent had become friends. “Somehow she was introduced into my life only a few months ago,” said Rodgers. “I started to go back and listen to the work she had done with my old engineer and she started sending me some new stuff. I was like ‘wow! That’s really cool’.
He continued: “I would have never thought of using the guitar like that or composing like that and it was really interesting. It was very eclectic and she was using different ways of expressing herself, the fact that we’re vibing so much is interesting because just as guitarists we are very different. The fact she’s doing what she’s doing is really fascinating to me.”
He went on to say he could see himself working with St. Vincent. “Right now we’re just vibing, listening to each other’s music and talking,” Rodgers explained. “But that could easily develop into a musical relationship.”
Last year, it was revealed that Coldplay have also been in the studio working on new music with Nile Rodgers.
Meanwhile, last week it was announced that Nile Rodgers and Chic would be playing the Within The Walls series of gigs at Ludlow Castle, Shropshire on 22 July 2023. This follows the announcement of gigs at Millennium Square, Leeds, on 19 July and Warwick Castle on 20 July. Tickets for all three gigs are available here.
