Panda Bear was last seen on Daft Punk‘s ‘Random Access Memories’. Talking to Vice as part of their Creators Project series, Panda Bear revealed that he was invited to work with Daft Punk in Paris after having asked the duo to remix one of his solo songs and an Animal Collective song.
Speaking about his time in Paris, Panda Bear said: “They set up a bunch of microphones to see which one would sound best with my voice and then it was like, ‘OK, do something good’. It was right at the last moment that we came up with something that we all liked.”
