Daft Punk write an email to their hero and collaborator from inside their spaceship.
The masked producers have now filmed a little tribute to Rodgers in a very appropriate Daft Punk style. In what appears to be a spaceship’s computer screen, Daft Punk (seen mainly in the glass reflection) use their robot hands to type out a loving note to the guitarist. The clip is from the recent documentary on Rodgers titled Nile Rodgers: From Disco To Daft Punk.
Watch the clip below and look for Chic’s new album this June. Update: Rodgers tells Billboard that Elton John and Janelle Monae will be featured on the album, and he’s hoping to add an unnamed “pop diva,” as well.
