Disco legend Giorgio Moroder has claimed that "everybody" wants to work with him following his recent collaboration with Daft Punk.

The Italian synth pioneer features on the track 'Giorgio By Moroder' on the French duo's forthcoming new album 'Random Access Memories' and, in an interview with Billboard, he discussed the publicity he had received since it was revealed he would feature on the LP.

"Since the publicity of the Daft Punk song, which is not even out yet, it's like everybody wants me now," said Moroder, who also revealed he had since received offers to from different management companies. "I'm sure once I go with one I'm going to have a lot of work."

The producer, who engineered some of Donna Summer's biggest hits, claimed earlier this month that Daft Punk's new album is a "step forward" for dance music. "Daft Punk wanted to do something and do it in a way that's not done by just pushing a note or a chord," he said. "You definitely hear that it's nice and full; the drums and the bass have that warm, that full sound. This is like a step forward."

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Daft Punk's new single 'Get Lucky', which features Pharrell Williams on vocals, had broken Spotify records by becoming the most streamed song in a 24-hour period in the UK and US. 'Random Access Memories', which also features cameos from Julian Casablancas, Todd Edwards, Panda Bear, Chilly Gonzales and Nile Rodgers, is released on May 20.
