In a recent article in Rolling Stone, reports indicate that the collaboration took place in Paris, France. An exceprt of the article is below.
At their Paris studio, they laid down a combination of live and programmed drums while Kanye worked out rough vocals on the fly. “It was very raw: he was rapping – kind of screaming primally, actually,” Thomas says. “Kanye doesn’t give a fuck,” Guy-Manuel adds. “He’s a good friend.” Director (and longtime Daft Punk compatriot) Michel Gondry says that Kanye recently played him “two songs” that sprang from the session. “One of them, I told him it sounded solid and powerful – I envisioned a cube when I heard it,” Gondry says. “He told me, Chris Cunningham’s already directing the video!”
This report, as shared on Fakeshoredrive.com, confirms at least two songs that will be revealed soon, including a video to be released. Kanye West sampled Daft Punk in the past, using their “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” for his track, 2007’s “Stronger.”
The collaborations were confirmed by A-Track, who tweeted about the songs he’s heard.
So I guess I no longer have to keep the secret of the robots producing Ye? Those songs are insane.
