Daft Punk's Most Revealing Interview Yet

The track features Pharrell on vocals and guitar work from disco legend Nile Rodgers; it was also teased in the commercial for the group's new LP that aired at Coachella and during Saturday Night Live last weekend.

Just a few days ago, Daft Punk revealed the tracklist for Random Access Memories, which will see release on May 21st. The album finds the French duo moving away from sample-based tunes and enlisting the help of top studio musicians and producers, including Giorgio Moroder, Animal Collective's Panda Bear and Todd Edwards.
