In a recent interview with Mixmag Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter revealed that the french duo had worked with Kanye West on his upcoming album. When speaking about the studio session Bangalter remarked “When the first 15-second snippet of ‘Get Lucky’ came out, Kanye came to our studio in Paris and we worked on loads of different ideas together. We’re not sure how many tracks we will have on [his new, forthcoming] album yet.”
“The music we worked on with Kanye was super primal and raw and super violent. It was the opposite of our new album in lots of ways. It was really exciting to do something completely raw.”
While the name of the collaboration is not yet confirmed, Kanye recently performed a single off his upcoming album titled ‘Black Skinhead’. Similarly to Bangalter’s description of the session with West as very ‘raw’ and ‘violent’, Kanye’s SNL performance showcased a very dark track as he screamed into the mic.
If this is indeed the collaboration between West and Daft Punk it seems that the duo has not completely adopted the disco, indie sound that characterizes Random Access Memories. We will keep you updated with more details as the are announced and watch for the release of Kanye’s album on June 18th.
