Beck Working on New Music With Nile Rodgers of Chic

One look at the production resume of Chic’s Nile Rodgers and it’s clear the man keeps busy. He’s produced classic albums by Diana RossMadonnaDuran Duran and David Bowie, to name a few.

And he’s not slowing down anytime soon, either. In a new interview with, Rodgers revealed that he’ll soon go into the studio with Beck, who is one of the performers at the Rodgers-curated FreakOut! Let’s Dance Festival, taking place in Riverhead, N.Y., Aug. 4-5.

“We haven’t gone into the studio yet,” he said. “We’re going into the studio out on [Long] Island. We have the studio booked, we’re ready to go.”

But it does make sense: Rumor has it that Beck is moving in a funkier direction, if his new song “Dreams” is indicative of his upcoming music.

Will Beck be backed by Chic when he performs at FreakOut! Let’s Dance? “No,” Rodgers says.
