Daft Punk Interviewed By Sky Ferreira (Sure Why Not!): Check Out The Highlights & Ultra-Cool Photos

It’s pretty hard to get a hold of the two French robots in Daft Punk, by design. Which is why it makes an odd sort of sense that one of their rare interviews leading up to the release of Random Access Memories is with none other than Sky Ferreira for the small, chic magazine CR Fashion Book. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter spoke with the singer and got into their best robo-formal threads for the accompanying super-cool black-and-white spread, which you can click through up top. Head below for some interview highlights.

On the album’s title: “The title plays with concepts of computer memory and human memories, establishing a loose parallel between the human brain and the hard drive—both are somehow randomly fragmented devices. We have always been fascinated by the relationship and connections between man and machine.”

On the direction of the album: “This album is about technology going towards humanity, in a world where humanity is going towards technology. We tried to capture robotic emotions with music, replacing this time our electronic machines by real human beings.”

On time travel: If they could go to any moment in time, they’d maybe opt for “witnessing the completion of the Great Pyramids, then traveling to see the remaining Six Wonders of the World, which are now long gone.”

On dance music’s homogeneity (again): “Computers, as music instruments, are making it difficult for musicians to have their distinctive sonic personality, and a lot of dance records are starting to sound the same, in a very formatted way.”

On their favorite thing about recording this album: “Being in the studio with Nile Rodgers, one of our childhood heroes, was definitely one of the highlights. He just brought his guitar to Electric Lady Studios in New York and started to play. It is the exact same guitar he’s been playing on all these records and songs we love.”
