Nile Rodgers and Disclosure team up for 'Together'

The young British dance duo Disclosure drew nearly universal acclaim this year with their exuberant debut album, "Settle."

But if there's one guy right now with more club-scene mojo than Guy and Howard Lawrence, it's Nile Rodgers, the influential Chic guitarist whose guest turn in Daft Punk's summer smash "Get Lucky" has introduced him to a fresh generation of groove-seekers.

So it makes all kinds of sense that the Lawrence brothers would enlist Rodgers for a new single on their label Method Records. Fortunately for us, the collaboration repays the knee-jerk interest it was designed to cultivate.

As its soft-focus cover art suggests, "Together" is a slinky, 1980s-style soul-funk jam with Rodgers' inimitable guitar licks and words about unwinding over a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. In addition to the Chic founder, the song features Sam Smith, who sang Disclosure's "Latch," and Jimmy Napes, who co-wrote that highlight from "Settle."

Listen to "Together" below.
