Rodgers: No more Madonna outtakes

Nile Rodgers has revealed that there are no unreleased tracks from his session with Madonna. The Chic guitarist, who worked with the Queen of Pop in the 80s on her album Like A Virgin, admitted she was very determined about the record's tone and sound during a Google+ Hangout with Billboard.

'I don't have any unreleased Madonna material because Madonna knew exactly what she wanted her album to be when we did Like a Virgin,' he said. The only song that I had any input of bringing into the mix was a cover of Rolls Royce's ballad Love Don't Live Here Any More. That was a final last-minute decision.'

The 61-year-old added: 'The way I make records, believe it or not, there are not many outtakes in my world. As Madonna would say, 'Time is money and the money is mine'. 'The tape cost money and things like that, so when we were making records we had to be very budget-conscious. The great thing about Chic is that we do it very efficient. Both money and groove-conscious.'

Nile, who scooped three Grammy awards at this year's ceremony, premiered his new single Do What You Wanna Do (IMS Anthem) and talked about the upcoming Chic album, which will be a 'pop record'. He also said a Chic-inspired musical is in the early stages of production.
