Neptunes producer says he believes 'Random Access Memories' signals a change in music
Pharrell Williams has said he believes a change in the musical landscape is coming and that Daft Punk are leading the change.
Williams, who has collaborated with Daft Punk on their hit single ‘Get Lucky’ and also appears again on the forthcoming album ‘Random Access Memories’, spoke to Rolling Stone about his excitement about his belief in a “new wave” in music. “I’m just excited about the change, a new wave in music,” he said. “There’s something happening in the ether, and you know about it or you don’t. And if you know, it’s because you’re probably somewhere engineering the change. If you don’t know about it then you’re probably somewhere missing your call, and you’re gonna end up chasing it.”
The producer/performer went on to say: “The people that are leading are gonna do some really incredible things because they’re reaching from oblivion to come up with new stuff. So, to me, that’s interesting to watch. I think the robots are leading. Daft Punk, they’re definitely leading.”
Pharrell previously said Daft Punk’s album needs no chemical stimulant for maximum enjoyment. He said: “You don’t need MDMA for this music.”
