The information is starting to finally leak in about Daft Punk's upcoming Random Access Memories, which is due May 21. The duo teased more out of its upcoming single with Pharrell, and now, the Rolling Stone had procured some more information from the two. One interesting tidbit is that they've worked with Kanye West:
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 [de Homem-Christo] 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!"
"Stronger" taught us that mixing 'Ye and Daft Punk is an automatic win, so another hit should be expected.
