All’s been quiet on the new music front for Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter since the release of the highly anticipated and critically acclaimed Random Access Memories back in 2013. Thankfully, however, that may be changing sooner rather than later: Daft Punk is apparently hard at work on new music alongside The Weeknd. As Your EDM points out, Republic Records Executive VP and head of urban A&R, Wendy Goldstein, confirmed the rumors in a “hitmakers roundtable” hosted by Billboard last month. Said Goldstein when asked who she would work with if she could work with any artist or songwriter:
Actually, we have a session coming up in two days with The Weeknd and Daft Punk. I’m a massive Daft Punk fan, and this is the first time that I’ve actually been involved with an artist who’s going to go and work with them.
And, as if that weren’t enough, The Weeknd himself posted this on Instagram a couple of weeks back:
Stay tuned to see what exactly the trio has cooked up.
