After the success of Get Lucky, this year’s best-selling single in the UK, guitarist and producer Rodgers told DJAZZ.tv he will be reworking an archive of film scores, solo tracks and Chic material, adding that Daft Punk would collaborate on at least one of the previously unheard tracks.
“I found in the Warner tape library some old, unreleased Chic masters that didn’t belong to them that were in boxes that said Chic,” he said. “But when you opened them up they had Johnny Mathis inside, my film scores, they had Nile Rodgers solo tracks, they had Chic tracks that were not designed for any project except for the guys working with me writing songs. So I’m going to finish that, and this is an exclusive: Daft Punk want to do at least one of them with me, because they respect the music; they understand.”
Daft Punk’s success has led Durex to create a Get Lucky-branded line of condoms. The company has promoted the condoms by sending free packs to the world’s top DJs – with Diplo posting a photo on Instagram of an open pack of the Get Lucky “bedroom kit” with the note: “Thank God I had those Daft Punk condoms last night.”
