Nile Rodgers and La Roux are Hooking up for a New Album
The collaboration between La Roux and Nile Rodgers is focused on producing a new album. They say that the work is in its embryonic stage but that they will tell us when they are ready. She is working with the legendary producer and guitarist. He spoke to Clash Music to confirm the story. Apparently he recently hooked up with Elly Jackson and they are hoping to do a future project. His past achievements include that famous performance with Ben E and David Bowie. The pair met up in London recently according to the report.
- The birth of a new and fruitful collaboration: Rodgers says that he was in London giving a speech. Prior to leaving in his plane, he decided to pop into the studio. The guitarist said that they looked into each other’s eyes and that was the beginning of the musical partnership. They played guitar and listened to music.
Nile Rodgers says that he bonded with La Roux on account of their love of technical musicianship. He describes Elly picking up the guitar and playing funky music. In any case he found her music compelling despite the fact that she could not quite explain the technical things that she was doing. He admires the fact that she is attempting to veer back into the world of theoretical music composition.

He says that they share a feel for the past. Apparently she does not feel as if she was born in the current era. The singer said that he had to stop himself from saying that he loved her for saying that. La Roux argues that the music she related to most when she was young was jazz. It has also been rumored that Rogers has been secretly working with Daft Punk as well.
