Album due out this June…

Chic are to release their first new album since 1992’s Chic-Ism.

Spin reports that the group have signed to Warner Bros Records and plan to put out a new single on March 20, with an album coming in June.

Chic were founded in the mid-seventies by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards, who passed away in 1996. Recently, Rodgers co-wrote and performed on three songs off Daft Punk’s 2013 album Random Access Memories, including the single “Get Lucky“.

“Nile has never stopped moving forward, so I am thrilled to welcome him into the WBR family as he begins a dynamic new chapter of his extraordinary career,” said Warner Bros Records Chairman and CEO Cameron Strang upon the announcement.
