RADSOUND // SOTW: I’LL BE THERE – CHIC
Originally published on Radsound
Being the first release from the outfit since ‘Chic Mystique’ in 1992 in anticipation of their aptly titled forthcoming new album ‘It’s About Time’ and following the re-rising fame of Nile Rodgers courtesy of work with Daft Punk, Disclosure and many others, ‘I’ll Be There’ is another slice of sheer pop genius from the band.
Comprised from old demo tapes and new inputs featuring the legendary likes of Bernard Edwards and Tony Thompson prior to their deaths, the track is a modern day rejuvanation of the 1970s with storming bass, infectious harmonies and of course that signature funk guitar sound – all of which make it utterly unavoiadably great and more than worthy of your entire week’s listening.
’I’ll Be There’ is out now, whilst ‘It’s About Time’ is released in June.
