Pharrell Williams on Daft Punk collaboration: 'The robots are leading'

Hitmaker Pharrell Williams has opened up about working with French electro-duo Daft Punk on their chart-topping single, 'Get Lucky', which also features Nile Rodgers.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine about the high-profile collaboration, the 'Lapdance' star explained that it shows a change in the attitude towards mixing musical genres and it's opening up a new dynamic that will be great for the industry:

"The idea of people collaborating is cool. But I think more than anything else I'm just excited about the change, a new wave in music. There's something happening in the ether, and you know about it or you don't. And if you know, it's because you're probably somewhere engineering the change. If you don't know about it then you're probably somewhere missing your call, and you're gonna end up chasing it."

With this in mind, Williams added that Daft Punk are definitely at the forefront of this exciting movement: "The people that are leading are gonna do some really incredible things because they're reaching from oblivion to come up with new stuff. So, to me, that's interesting to watch."

"I think the robots are leading. Daft Punk, they're definitely leading."
