Giorgio Moroder Records ‘Rap’ With Daft Punk

Written by Kiel Egging on May 26, 2012

Daft Punk have added 70’s disco superstar Giorgio Moroder to their list of collaborators for what is widely tipped to be their new album.

Exclaim and URB have both reported that Moroder mentioned at an International Music Summit that he recently joined the French robotic duo to lay down a “rap.”

Moroder said he entered a vocal booth loaded with various vintage microphones and was asked to relay stories about his life. The microphone he used depended on which decade of his life he was speaking about.

Moroder joins the likes of Nile Rodgers and Paul Williams as musos who have recently hung out with Daft Punk to create some new material.

Daft Punk are yet to reveal any official details about their as-yet-untitled album, but Williams has previously hinted the album could surface as early as next month.  Watch this space.
