Daft Punk have worked on tracks for Kanye West's next album, it has been confirmed.

The French duo, who previewed new song 'Get Lucky' at Coachella festival in California this weekend, revealed in Rolling Stone that they have made two songs with Kanye and that the rapper was "screaming primally" on his vocal takes. "It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually," Thomas Bangalter told the US magazine with Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo adding. "Kanye doesn’t give a fuck. He’s a good friend."

Film director Michel Gondry also said that he has heard two songs from the Kanye West and Daft Punk sessions, saying: "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 West previously claimed that he would release new music "in a couple of months" during a gig in March. "I wanna tell y'all that I'm working on some new shit," he told the crowd at his show at Zénith in Paris last night. "It's gonna be out in a couple of months."

Meanwhile, Daft Punk are gearing up to release their new album 'Random Access Memories' in May. The album will feature collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Nile Rogers, Julian Casablancas, Chilly Gonzalez, Panda Bear and Giorgio Moroder.
