The legendary Italian disco producer has recorded a “rap” or sorts for Daft Punk, Urb reports. Giorgio Moroder, responsible for the late Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love” and some of the dirtiest facial hair of the 1970’s, made the announcement at Ibiza’s International Music Summit last week where he also expressed interest in working with contemporary female musicians like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.
According to URB Daft Punk asked Moroder, 73, “to go into a vocal booth and speak about his life. In the studio were multiple microphones of various vintages from the 60s to today. When Moroder asked the engineer why they had so many mics, he replied that the mic they would use would depend on what decade of his life he was speaking about. When Moroder asked if anyone would know the difference, the engineer replied ‘They will know.'”
Moroder’s announcement follows similar claims from Nile Rodgers of Chic who spoke in February about a possible Daft Punk album collaboration. Ahhh freak out!
The duo’s last album was the divisive original soundtrack to Tron: Legacy, a project forever marred by their hammy obligatory cameo as futuristic club DJs – aka the second worst thing they’ve ever done for money. Below is the first.
