Daft Punk on Pharrell collaboration: 'It felt natural to invite him to feature on the record'

Electro-duo Daft Punk have revealed that collaborating with Pharrell Williams was a "natural" step for them.

The French pair, who recently shot to No.1 in countries all over the world with their new single, told that asking him to appear on their record was an easy decision because they loved his style and music, and were impressed with his 'elegance':

"It felt natural to invite him to be part of our album. He's a born performer in every way, who oozes elegance. He's not always had the opportunity to show he can be an excellent singer, even though he has earned his place in the legacy of mythical performers.”

Nile Rodgers, who also appears on the 'Get Lucky' single with Pharrell and Daft Punk, also recently described his contribution to the cut as "natural":

"About a year ago, I get a knock on the door – first a virtual one and then a real knock – from Guy-Manuel and Thomas. The collaboration felt so unbelievably natural that it made me realise that I need to be in the studio with people."
