2015 Record of the Year Candidate? or is that 1977?

The brilliant guitarist, songwriter, producer and artist Nile rogers continues the upward arc of his career rebound with the first single from the forthcoming Chic record, the band's first in a couple of decades. He hit big a couple of years ago with his Grammy winning collaboration with Pharell Williams and the spacey duo Daft Punk on Get Lucky and that caused a whole new generation to delve into his legendary career which includes hits not only with Chic, but with Inxs, David Bowie, Diana Ross, Duran Duran and many, many more.

The first single I'll Be There is a pure flashback to the disco daze to the point where it has the sound and feel of 1977 all over again. Rogers nods to his past with a Don Cornelius Soul Train intro. It does hurt that he saw fit to include Victoria's Secret Model Karlie Kloss doing what she does best in the video.

This one could be an early pick for Record of the Year...just not sure which year
