In a new interview with Mixmag Global, Daft Punk have revealed that they've made some "super primal and raw and super violent" music with Kanye West.
The robots and the famed rapper have been in the studio together in Paris following the release of Daft Punk's new single.
Speaking to Mixmag, Thomas Bangalter said: "When the first 15-second snippet of 'Get Lucky' came out, Kanye came to our studio in Paris and we worked on loads of different ideas together. We're not sure how many tracks we will have on [his new, forthcoming] album yet."
"The music we worked on with Kanye was super primal and raw and super violent. It was the opposite of our new album in lots of ways. It was really exciting to do something completely raw."
Here's proof that, in spite of 'Random Access Memories', Daft Punk haven't gone completely soft (rock). Their latest LP is lashed with references to indie, prog, disco, funk and soul, but apart from a collaboration with Panda Bear, there's little evidence of modern dance music. Perhaps they've delivered the hard electro goods many diehard fans were expecting to Kanye. Or maybe "super primal and raw and super violent" means a completely different twist from the robots altogether.
They also confirmed that they will release an official remix of 'Get Lucky', though there are no concrete plans for a full 'Random Access Memories' remix album.
