It’s About Time isn’t the only Chic album about to be released. It will shortly be sharing space on record shop shelves with The Chic Organisation 1977-79, a lavish box set containing the band’s first three albums alongside a collection of rarities, a facsimile of a promotional 12-inch and We Are Family, the 1979 Sister Sledge album that may well be the greatest Chic production of all. It comes complete with not one, not two but three essays by prominent cultural critics on Chic’s significance. It was all noticeably different last time Chic released an album
It's Album Time is, as advertised, his first full-length album. The title sets the tone: Casual, confident, and unburdened by the imagined need for significance that scares so many good dance producers into losing their cool when given a bigger platform. Most of the music on it could be classified as disco, with shades of cocktail lounge, exotica, surf instrumentals, and other styles that favor whimsy and novelty over sober artistic expression
The ‘It’s About Time’ cover features models Duckie Thot and Jazzelle Zanaughtti. Shot by Britt Lloyd and directed by Greg Foley, co-founder of V Magazine, Duckie and Jazzelle are not only modern fashion icons, but also activists making huge strides for women of colour in fashion. When I first came up with the concept for the first Chic album cover more than 40 years ago it was a deliberate statement that we could all be abundant, we could all be with the beautiful people, we could all be included, we could all have good times
Album You and I. I Know It’s Over Lyrics. Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head And as I climb into an empty bed, oh well, enough said I know it's over still I cling, I don't know where else I can go Over, over Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head. You see the sea wants to take me, the knife wants to slit me Do you think you can help me?
Hank Williams, Jr. kicks off It's About Time - his 2016 debut for Nash Icon, Big Machine's imprint for country veterans - by singing Neil Young's "Are You Ready for the Country," a song that in this context functions as a bit of a fanfare for Hank J. s trademark redneck defiance. Despite the appearance of Eric Church, country music's modern-day rocking rebel, this cover doesn't pander to a younger audience, nor do any of the other 11 songs on this album.
