Famed disco icon Nile Rodgers has apparently been spending time with everyone’s favorite Parisian robots, according to an interview with the Chic frontman in Houston’s Culture Map. “Those guys are great,” said the man behind “Le Freak” and “Good Times.” “They’re coming to my apartment on Monday and we’re going to talk about making a new record together.”
This dream collaboration would mark Daft Punk‘s first proper album since 2005′s rather forgettable (yet ultimately redeemed) Human After All. It’s widely believe that the new effort with Rodgers, who has produced everyone from Superbowl superstar Madonna (Like A Virgin) to David Bowie (Let’s Dance) to Michael Bolton (um…) will be an R&B-influenced affair. It’s a genre Daft Punk have already proven themselves surprisingly capable of.
