Giorgio Moroder has revealed when speaking at the Ibiza Music Summit that he has been working in the studio with Daft Punk!
Although not quite Nicki Minaj or Rihanna as he quipped before the music conference - the news that now the Moog lord and both Paul Williams and Chic's Nile Rogers have also been at work with the robot duo is nothing short of exciting.
The news was casually laid bare...
“Can I tell you a funny story?” Moroder began. “Thomas, who is the guy [from Daft Punk], wanted me to talk about my life. And I said, ‘what are you going to do with it?’ He said, ‘you just talk and we’re going to snip stuff. So I came in, in Paris, into their studio, and he had three microphones to record me. Three different microphones.”
“I said, ‘why do you have three? Isn’t one enough?’ He said, ‘this microphone here is a very old microphone from the 60s, because if you talk about your life in the 60s that’s how the microphone is going to sound. Then if you talk about the 70s, you have the second microphone. And if you talk about the future we have one here.’”
“I asked the engineer if anybody had ever been able to distinguish the different sounds, and he said no. So I said, ‘why is he doing it?’. He said, ‘Well, he (Thomas) knows the difference!’”
Fellow Daft Punk collaborator Nile Rogers spoke earlier adding to the anticipation; “So it’s not really a secret that we were together,” he said, “and I say to both Guy and Thomas, that I respect them hugely, immensely, and they are in charge of their marketing and I’m going to let them roll it out and tell you guys what it is. All I can say is, that shit is amazing!”
Giorgio Moroder, Paul Williams and Nile Rogers for the new Daft Punk album? Yes please.
