We’re basically watching for the new Daft Punk record with the same anxious eyes as the Boards of Canada one.
While 2010 brought us the score to Tron Legacy and an awesome Reconfigured Remix album to it (in which we mashed up one of the tracks with “Bad Romance”), it’s been seven years since their proper studio release Human After All. To say anticipation is high would be the understatement of the year.
But, alas! We have some news. Legendary producer Giorgio Moroder held a one on one interview at the International Music Summit in Ibiza, where he stated that he recorded a rap for the duo’s new record.
Urb.com Reports: The robots asked the Munich Machine to go into a vocal booth and speak about his life. In the studio were multiple microphones of various vintages from the ’60s to today. When Moroder asked the engineer why they had so many mics, he replied that the mic they would use would depend on what decade of his life he was speaking about. When Moroder asked if anyone would know the difference, the engineer replied “They will know.”
Nile Rodgers of Chic also confirmed that he’s worked on several songs for the upcoming Daft Punk project.
Oh, holy day. So many disco kings!
