Producer and Daft Punk collaborator Nile Rogers has spoken about working on the French duo's new album 'Random Access Memories'.


Speaking to Vice as part of their Creators Project series, Rogers says that "Ninety per cent if not higher of all recordings that I've ever made in my life have been the result of a very impromptu initial meeting that feels so natural and so organic that you have to take it to the next level. They make you up your game, even if your game is pretty good."

He adds: "I feel like I'm working with people who grew up with me and feel it the same way we felt the vibe when we were creating this stuff. It's like they went back to go forward."

Rogers is one of a number of collaborators Daft Punk have worked with on 'Random Access Memories', which is released on May 20. The duo have also worked with Giorgio Moroder, Todd Edwards, Panda Bear and Chilly Gonzales are all believed to have recorded with the French duo in the studio. Scroll down to watch Nile Rogers speak about working with Daft Punk now.

Speaking about working with Daft Punk, Todd Edwards said: "Describing the new songs as "future classics," Edwards goes on to say: "They reversed gears and went back to a time that no one's really focused on. They're fulfilling their vision on all levels."
