ROBERT PLANT To Guest On New NILE RODGERS Album

LED ZEPPELIN singer Robert Plant will make a guest appearance on the upcoming album from legendary producer/musician Nile Rodgers.

Rodgers told told the Daily Star newspaper that his cancer battles in 2010 and 2017 motivated him to do more collaborations and live shows.

"When I was first diagnosed with cancer, the doctor told me to contemplate life. I was, like, 'I'm going to do more collaborations that I've ever done before, more concert shows than I've ever done.' And that's what I'll continue to do."

Nile and Robert first worked together more than 30 years ago in THE HONEYDRIPPERS, alongside Jeff Beck and others.

Nile told Daily Star: "I said to [Robert], 'Why don't we do THE HONEYDRIPPERS Volume 3? Let's leave out volume two and go straight to three. If it's a success, we can revisit."

Last month, Led Zeppelin News reported that Plant had spent December 17 at Abbey Road Studios with Rodgers.

Rodgers posted a photo of him with Plant on Instagram, along with the caption: "A couple of #Honeydrippers hanging at @abbeyroadstudios – One of my favorite people in the world @robertplantofficial from @ledzeppelin a serious legend."

Rodgers's upcoming album will also feature tracks with Bruno Mars and Jorja Smith.

Last year, Nile released "It's About Time" — his first CHIC album in more than 25 years.

He admitted the upcoming collection is essentially the second half of a double LP, but he chose to release them separately because of the way audiences are changing.

Nile explained: "I basically made two albums. 'It's About Time', to me, feels like a movie in two parts because there is too much information. If it were the old days it would be a double album, but I'm aware people don't have the attention span anymore."
