Daft Punk have confirmed two collaborations with Kanye West for their fourth studio album 'Random Access Memories'
Daft Punk have recorded with Kanye West for 'Random Access Memories'.
The French electronic duo have confirmed two collaborations with the rapper - who sampled their track 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' in his 2007 hit single 'Stronger' - for their fourth studio album and describe his vocals on the songs as "screaming primally".
Member Thomas Bangalter told Rolling Stone magazine: "It was very raw: he was rapping - kind of screaming primally, actually."
The other half of the pair, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, added: "Kanye doesn't give a f**k. He's a good friend."
Filmmaker Michel Gondry, whose movies includes 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' and 'Be Kind Rewind', has been lucky enough to hear the music from their recording sessions and was blown away at how "powerful" they sound.
He said: "One of them, I told him it sounded solid and powerful - I envisioned a cube when I heard it. He told me, Chris Cunningham's already directing the video!"
Kanye revealed he had new material coming out during a show in Paris, France, earlier this year, but remained tight-lipped around whether it would be a collaboration.
He told the crowd: "I wanna tell y'all that I'm working on some new s**t. It's gonna be out in a couple of months."
Daft Punk previewed their new track 'Get Lucky', featuring Pharrell Williams, at California's Coachella festival over the weekend (13.04.13) ahead of the album's release in May.
Other musicians to feature on 'Random Access Memories' include The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas, Chilly Gonzalez, Panda Bear and Giorgio Moroder.
