Prior to the release of French electronic duo Daft Punk's latest album, Random Access Memories, few could have forecasted the unprecedented success of lead single 'Get Lucky' with over one million copies of the single sold since its release in April making the disco knee-jiggling track the year's UK bestseller and the most streamed Spotify track in 24 hours in history. Such was the hit power of 'Get Lucky' that Durex, inspired by the song title and subject matter, created a new line of 'Get Lucky' condoms featuring the band on the packet and a Japanese toy company unveiled a line of mini robo action figures of Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter (AKA Daft Punk).

Now, spurred on by the worldwide enthusiasm for their new disco-electronic sound, it has been revealed that Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers will work with Daft Punk once again in an exciting new project that plans to release previously unheard Chic master in his interview on DJAZZ.tv whilst at the Jazz à Vienne Festival 2013. The guitarist and producer explains how he came across some old Chic material in record label Warner's tape library: "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. 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."
