Daft Punk are proving themselves to be quite the profligate collaborators.

The duo have already clocked up studio time with Chic’s Nile Rodgers and with ‘Rainy Days And Mondays’ composer Paul Williams. This weekend, we discovered that the latest itinerant musician to join the robotic pair is, rather wonderfully, synthesiser legend Giorgio Moroder.

According to URB, Moroder has contributed spoken word material to a new track from the Gallic cyberstars. In an interview at the International Music Summit, Moroder revealed that the pair invited him into a vocal booth festooned with a range of classic and contemporary microphones. Moroder was subsequently invited to talk about his life – as he spoke about a different decade of his career, the sound engineer would use the microphone of the appropriate vintage. Moroder asked the engineer if anyone would be able to tell the difference. “They will know” was the vaguely cryptic reply.

Moroder, responsible for classic material from Donna Summer and Blondie, is clearly eager to muscle his way back onto the frontline of pop: he’s recently talked shop about working with Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.
