Daft Punk are set to work with Nile Rogers.
The ‘One More Time’ group were scheduled to meet the guitarist and producer – who has worked with David Bowie and Michael Jackson – this week to discuss new material.
Nile told Houston.culturemap.com this weekend: ”Those guys are great. They’re coming to my apartment on Monday and we’re going to talk about making a new record together.”
Daft Punk’s last studio album was ‘Human After All’ in 2005, since which they have only released a live album, ‘Alive 2007’ and the largely orchestral soundtrack to the film ‘Tron: Legacy’.
The duo – Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Tomas Bangalter – said making the soundtrack was their biggest challenge to date, but they learned a great deal from it.
Tomas said: ”Coming from our background of making electronic music in a small bedroom, then ending up having our music performed by a 90-piece orchestra – we are lucky to have had the opportunity to experience some powerful moments artistically over the years, but recording this orchestra was a very intense experience.”
”In the past, we have worked with clashing genres like disco and heavy metal, and here we would do it with film scores. This idea of the ultimate retro-futurism.”
