The 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' hitmakers returned to the studio last year to begin work on a fourth studio album - a follow-up to 2005's 'Human After All' - with disco producer Nile Rodgers.
Speaking about the sessions, Nile said: ''All I can say is those guys are geniuses and to think that after all these years we've been trying to get together, they just show up at my apartment in New York City and the vibe between us is so powerful and so strong - it's unbelievable.
