Following his hugely successful collaboration with Daft Punk, disco legend Nile Rodgers has revealed that he's also been working with David Guetta and Avicii.

"Last night I was working with David Guetta writing a song," the Chic guitarist told The Official Charts Company. "It was unbelievable, we went until two in the morning, and Arthur Baker and Taylor Dayne popped by - it felt like it was if we were back in the 80s."

Of his hook-up with yet another electronic music artist Rodgers said: "I've been working with a super talented writer and producer Avicii. This guy is such a genius writer. We've already written three or four songs together and can't get enough of each other."

Discussing the phenomenal success of Get Lucky, which followed a battle with cancer, the guitarist revealed: "Maybe this could feel more special than any other Number 1 record simply because of that. I was facing life and death issues and then to get something so rewarding as a Number 1 record is pretty amazing."

Rodgers also confirmed that he's recently unearthed a collection of 'lost' recordings and that he has plans to release them.

"I basically call it 'the lost Chic album', even though it's really a Nile Rodgers record. Bernard Edwards, Tony Thompson, Alfa and Luci singing on it. They're just demos, but they're amazing. So now I get to jam with my best friends and I think that I'm going to complete these songs. They sound really good to me, after being tucked away in a vault for 35 years. I restored the tapes and they sound absolutely brilliant."

Could Nile Rodgers be set to define the sound of dance music all over again? We wouldn't put it past him.
