First Listen: CHIC is back and jamming on "Sober"

(September 14, 2018) Nile Rodgers has had a resurgence over the past few years, as a new generation of artists have come to adore the guitar licks he laid down as the leader of the legendary dance group CHIC. And so when Nile announced that he and his current version of CHIC were going to be releasing a new album, the music world celebrated.

The album, It’s About Time, is still a couple weeks away, but the group has delivered a sneak peek in the brand new dance single, “Sober,” featuring guest vocalist Craig David. The sound is a surprising piece of New Jack Swing, sounding a gem that Teddy Riley may have brought to us twenty years ago.

David delivers a popping lead vocal and the groove is non-stop. It’s a great introduction to the upcoming CHIC release and a number that will have you jamming all weekend.

Check out “Sober” and welcome back CHIC!
