Julian Casablancas has revealed that he recorded a second collaboration with Daft Punk.

The Strokes frontman appeared on the track 'Instant Crush' with the French dance duo, which appeared on their chart-topping 2013 album 'Random Access Memories'.

Speaking to Chilean news outlet Cooperativa (via Strokes News) in an interview which you can watch below, the frontman said: "There is another Daft Punk song that we worked on that was cool. Maybe I'll get those guys… we can do that one day soon, finish it."

The Strokes frontman is currently preparing to release a new solo album alongside his band The Voidz. At a gig in Santiago, as part of the Lollapalooza Chile festival, the singer played The Strokes' 'Take It Or Leave It' – watch footage of the performance below.

Discussing the sound of his forthcoming new solo material recently, Casablancas compared its sound to artists such as Black Flag and French electronic artist Sébastien Tellier, saying: "There are 45 different things that I’d like to do. I do not like hearing the same genre for three songs in a row."

Meanwhile, talking about The Strokes, Casablancas said the band would be working on new material. "We're trying to carry on as friends, taking it easy, recording a couple of songs, and do a couple of shows."
