Published Nov 13, 2014Last year, Strokes singer Julian Casablancas contributed to Daft Punk's album Random Access Memories with "Instant Crush," one of the collection's most pop-friendly standouts. He's previously hinted that he and Daft Punk have a second collaborative tune in the vaults, and now he's shared some tantalizing new tidbits about the track.
Speaking with Revolt TV, he said, "It's cool, weird. It's definitely not one-tenth as pop-u-licious as 'Instant Crush,' but it's just very weird. It's like a song that just goes up. It's like four half-steps up, moving as that on cycle, on repeat. And it's super bizarre. And it sounds like jazz-modern-weird. It's weirder than any song on the record that I know of."
Apparently the song is too crazy, however, since one of Casablancas' bandmates in the Voidz chimed in to say, "It sounds like a pop song me."
The vocalist also said that he had been speaking to one of the Daft Punk robots and said, "That song, man, we've got to put that song out!" Hopefully he gets his wish soon. Watch the interview below
In the meantime, Daft Punk are issuing their live albums Alive 1997 and Alive 2007 on vinyl in time for the holidays. Both arrive separately and as a box set on December 23 via Warner Music.
