Daft Punk - Daft Punk Confirm Details For New LP 'Random Access Memories'

Daft Punk announced official details of their long-awaited comeback album over the weekend, and with the knowledge that Chic founder and legendary guitarist Nile Rodgers was on it, the press were keen to get his thoughts on the creative process that had gone with the French duo on LP Random Access Memories.

The Guardian reports that Daft Punk launched a new website at the weekend which revealed the album artwork, the title and the release date – May 20th. Exciting stuff! The pair haven’t released an LP since 2005’s Human After All, but as one of the most influential dance acts of the last 20 years, anticipation for them to return has been fierce. If Nile Rodgers is to be taken at his word – and he’s a pretty reliable fellow – then the wait is going to be well worth it. "About a year ago, I get a knock on the door – first a virtual one and then a real knock – from Guy-Manuel and Thomas” he told Rolling Stone magazine, continuing, “The collaboration felt so unbelievably natural that it made me realise that I need to be in the studio with people. I love partnering with people. And then from that moment, a windfall of recording started happening. I just started going in with whomever I could."

So far the only hint of new music from the album has been a 15 second clip of music released by the pair that aired during Saturday Night Live on US TV recently.
