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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
