French disco robots, Daft Punk have kept any new workings under wraps until now.
YourEDM was watching the “Hitmakers Roundtable” on Billboard below and had to rewind the tapes when they heard Republic Records executive VP/head of urban A&R, slip the news that The Weeknd would be recording in studio with the french house project. Look for it at the 2:38 mark.
“Actually, we have a session coming up in two days with The Weeknd and Daft Punk. I’ve always been a massive Daft Punk fan, and this is the first time that I’ve actually been involved with an artist who’s going to go and work with them.”
September 17, the same day Billboard posted the above video, The Weeknd had posted the below image on his socials. The icing on the cake that this collaboration is happening!
There’s been no official word from Daft Punk on the news. It’s been three years since their last effort, but that’s no long stretch in comparison to their seven year intermission leading up to 2013’s Random Access Memories. We know new music is coming, it just might not be coming anytime soon.
