Nile Rodgers has revealed that he is in talks with Daft Punk to work on their new album.
The Chic guitarist and legendary producer – who has previously offered his production duties to artists including David Bowie and Madonna – told CultureMap that he had discussed collaborating with the French duo.
Speaking about possibility of working together, he said:
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 released their last album, the soundtrack to the film Tron: Legacy, in 2010. A remix of the album was released in April 2011, but the band’s former manager Busy P condemned the project, stating: “A masterpiece like Tron:Legacy soundtrack deserved the best and I am sad to discover the A&R at Disney is apparently buying most of his electronic music in airports stores.”
Meanwhile, in August last year, a demo from the duo’s 1994 LP ‘Drive’ was uncovered by Scottish electronic label Soma Records.
