Watch: Daft Punk pay tribute to Nile Rodgers with new video

Daft Punk pay tribute to Nile Rodgers with new video

Clip is taken from the ‘Nile Rodgers: From Disco to Daft Punk’ film.

This summer sees funk legend Nile Rodgers releasing Chic’s first album in 23 years, ‘It’s About Time’.

In anticipation of the record, a new documentary paying tribute to the musician’s past couple of decades in coming out in advance. It’s called ‘Nile Rodgers: From Disco to Daft Punk’, and it documents his journey from funk staple to contemporary giant.

As part of the release, Daft Punk have filmed a minute-long tribute to the artist, filmed in a customary outer-space landscape. Taking place in a rocket ship, the helmet-sporting producers type out a message for Rodgers.

It reads:

“DEAR NILE,

WE ARE SENDING YOU THIS TRANSMISSION TO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR AMAZING SONGS.

YOUR MUSIC CONTINUES TO INSPIRE THE WORLD…

WITH LOVE,

DAFT PUNK.”
