Nile Rodgers - Nile Rodgers: Avicii is my favourite writer

Nile Rodgers says Avicii is currently his favourite songwriter.

The 61-year-old Chic guitarist - who has been an active musician since 1970 - has collaborated with many big names in his musical career, such as Diana Ross, David Bowie, Duran Duran and Madonna, but praises Avicii as one of his favourite writers.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1, Nile said: ''The new stuff that I'm writing feels really really good and of course I've done some collaborations with a lot of the artists that I've worked with over the last three years from Avicii to a lot of really, really good people.

''Avicii is one of my favourite songwriters. He and I have written, already, seven great songs. People have only heard one but it's like we're stockpiling them.''

Nile worked with Avicii on a track, 'Lay Me Down', on his debut album 'True', and after such a successful collaboration both stars are looking forward to working with each other again on the Swedish producer's second album.

He added: ''He and I together, we always laugh because we love each other. It's just great working with him.''
