After breaking records with his last Daft Punk collaboration, American musician Nile Rodgers reveals a possible second Daft Punk collaboration.
For those completely out of touch with popular culture, Rodgers’ previous collaboration with Daft Punk, “Get Lucky” from Random Access Memories reached the top ten in 28 different countries, became the most listened to song on Spotify, inspired its own line of condoms and action figures, and spawned countless remixes including one from the band itself. In a recent interview with DJAZZtv, which can be viewed below, Nile Rodgers explains what may lead to a second collaboration with Daft Punk which involves some archived material Rodgers uncovered.
I found in the Warner tape library, some old, unreleased Chic masters that didn’t belong to them that were in boxes that said Chic, but when you opened them up they had Johnny Mathis inside, my film scores, they had Nile Rodgers solo tracks, they had Chic tracks that were not designed for any project except for the guys working with me writing songs. So, I’m going to finish that, and this is an exclusive: Daft Punk wants to do at least one of the with me, because they respect the music, they understand.
