The rumours are true. Daft Punk has teamed up with Nile Rodgers for their upcoming album, said to be released in June this year. Apart from his own band, Chic, Rodgers has worked with many established artists in his time, including Diana Ross, David Bowie, Madonna and Duran Duran. Award-winning producer Paul Williams confirmed this week at SXSW that he has also collaborated on some of the duo’s new songs.
The French electro pair are known for keeping things a secret until the very last minute, so it will be interesting to see what they have planned. Williams said “I feel like I don’t want to talk about the stuff that I’m doing with them, because they want a press blackout on the album until it’s out, so I should basically not be talking about it.”
While no one is giving away much information around the new album, just the fact that they are working on some amazing new tracks has been enough to send the internet into overdrive. It goes without saying that this is a much anticipated album after their last original release, Human After All, way back in 2006.
