Pharrell Williams Features on Latest Daft Punk "The Collaborators" Video To Talk "Random Access Memories"

The anticipation keeps building in the most beautiful fashion for Daft Punk's eagerly-anticipated new album, "Random Access Memories." I must say I find the video series, "The Collaborators" to be a great stroke of promo gold for the discerning music nerd like myself (and you). Each has focused on an integral player for the upcoming album and the latest has none of than megastar, Pharrell Williams of The Neptunes fame. He openly gushes about working with "The Robots" and we are treated to the most new sounds yet of single, "Get Lucky," which is all but guaranteed to be the hit of the summer.

Daft Punk Perform "Random Access Memories" at Coachella 2013!

Well at least in the form of the BIGGEST new album teaser yet....featuring a video that played on the festival screens showing the notorious robots jamming out with The Neptunes' Pharrell and the legendary Nile Rodgers. This confirms the disco-influenced vibe on the first single and it sounds like it will be the summer 2013 anthem. Now we'll see if the robots will be appearing on stage with fellow Frenchmen, Phoenix during their headline slot.

Oh and in case you missed it, here's part 3 of "The Collaborators" series on "Random Access Memories" this time featuring Nile Rodgers!
