Sam Smith and Disclosure have teamed up with Disclosure and Jimmy Napes on new track 'Together'.
Nile Rodgers is throwing himself back into studio work with rare abandon. Sure, some of those collaborations (step forward Chase & Status) might not be to our taste, but the guitarist has been able to score some memorable sessions.
Earlier this year, the genial Chic icon posted a picture on Twitter of his latest studio visit. Working with Sam Smith and Disclosure, the impromptu collective also included Jimmy Napes.
At the time, Clash was lucky enough to sit down with Sam Smith and chat about that session. "He is truly a legend! It was great to hear his stories, like who he has he worked with" Sam Smith continued. "And the big one for me was: 'did you ever work with Whitney Houston?' and he replied: 'I never worked with her, but I was best friends with her'. For me that was just crazy to be in the company of people that I have looked up to my whole life. It's been very very surreal."
Now the track has emerged online. 'Together' is a slow jammer for a sleazy evening, with Nile Rodgers' slick guitar lines underpinning the disco fuelled production and Sam Smith's seductive vocal.
Listen to it now.
