That’s what Nile Rodgers posted on his website earlier today. The music producer has commented that he is meeting with the duo today to discuss a collaboration – could this mean a more funky edge to their 4th studio album?
We are all on standby for news following their discussion in New York and will bring you updates as soon as we have them!
Today I’m going to spend some time with Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo better known as Daft Punk. We’ve briefly met before when they were doing some sort of listening party in NYC back in the 90’s. The scene was chaotic and we didn’t really have a chance to have an artistic connection, except they did tell me that they were sorry about my former partner Bernard Edward’s death. And they dug CHIC. The feeling is mutual.I dig Daft Punk. When I first heard “Da Funk” I thought it was one of the grooviest records I’d heard in a long time. The song “One More Time” came out when I was on a trip to Paris and I visited Virgin records.
I almost hooked up with the guys then but I don’t remember what went wrong. “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” I simply thought was one of the coolest records of the year when I heard it.
After all these years of almost hooking up, finally Daft Punk Is Hanging at My House.
