Disclosure, Craig David, HAIM and Bruno Mars are among the names confirmed to appear on Chic’s forthcoming album ‘It’s About Time’.

Originally scheduled for a 2015 release, though pushed back several times, the project will mark the disco pioneering group’s first full-length record in over 25 years, and according to frontman Nile Rodgers, will definitely appear at some point this year.

In a new interview with Pitchfork, Rodgers confirmed additional appearances from Jorja Smith, NAO, Ray BLK, Mura Masa and Anderson .Paak (among others). Describing the Bruno Mars-collaboration, Rodgers said “Anderson .Paak and I—we had a few days, and he was opening for [Bruno Mars] while he was in the UK….And Bruno was like, ‘Damn, I gotta stop by and hang with y’all.’ So we sat around telling great Prince stories and finally we got down, and Bruno came up with an idea and said, ‘Damn, I wonder why nobody’s done this.’ So we decided to get down and do it.”
