Daft Punk and The Weeknd are collaborating
It’s been over two years since Daft Punk released their fourth studio album, Random Access Memories, leaving fans wanting more new music (or at least a couple of tour dates). As the duo continue to keep fans on the edge, a major record executive may have blown their cover by dishing to Billboard in a July interview about their studio time with fellow low-profile artist, The Weeknd.
When Wendy Goldstein, the executive VP and head of Urban A&R at Republic Records, was asked who she would most like to work with, she revealed that the triad have an upcoming recording session.
“Well actually, we have a session coming up in two days that Ron set up with The Weeknd and Daft Punk. I’ve always been a massive Daft Punk fan so this is the first time that I’m actually involved with an artist who will work with them.”
Goldstein’s comment, which can be found in the footage below at the 2:39 mark, doesn’t clarify when exactly the session was supposed to take place, though it correlates with a recent Facebook post from The Weeknd, which features a photo of two metallic Daft Punk-resembling robots atop a speaker.
