As Chic gear up to release It's About Time, their first album since 1992, Nile Rodgers has revealed that Daft Punk will be providing a special "transmission" to complement the record. Rodgers tweeted today that the French robot superstars have made a "tribute film" for Chic and his work in general, and that it'll be available to watch "within a few weeks."

Rodgers explained the moving concept of It's About Time recently on his blog: "Four years ago I was stricken with very aggressive cancer and I wasn't sure how much time I had left. I decided the album's concept would be about time and I'd feature as many people from the lifespan of CHIC that I could on it." Expect the first single to drop on March 20, followed by a video directed by Inez & Vinoodh and featuring supermodel and pal of Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss.
