Daft Punk are on the verge of releasing one of the year’s most anticipated albums Random Access Memories on May 18th and judging by their recent online series The Collaborators they have worked with a variety of musicians during its production, from Pharrell Williams to Animal Collective’s Panda Bear to Nile Rodgers. Rolling Stone is now reporting Daft Punk worked with Kanye West in their personal studio in Paris. The Rolling Stone article reads:
At their Paris studio, they laid down a combination of live and programmed drums while Kanye worked out rough vocals on the fly. “It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas says. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck,” Guy-Manuel adds. “He’s a good friend.” Director (and longtime Daft Punk compatriot) Michel Gondry says that Kanye recently played him “two songs” that sprang from the session. “One of them, I told him it sounded solid and powerful – I envisioned a cube when I heard it,” Gondry says. “He told me, Chris Cunningham’s already directing the video!”
There is no official word on a new Kanye West album but this is promising news for fans of both Daft Punk and Mr. West.
