As a continuation of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of their final album, Random Access Memories, today Daft Punk reveal Memory Tapes, a new series of interviews with key artists who collaborated on the album.
In anticipation of the launch of Random Access Memories ten years ago, Daft Punk worked with The Creators Project to capture an interview series called The Collaborators, in which the album collaborators spoke about their experiences creating the music that became the seminal album. Memory Tapes is a follow up, a decade later, for the album collaborators to revisit Random Access Memories, share their memories of the recording process, and examine the impact that the album and Daft Punk have had on their own careers, and on culture in general.
Interviews for Memory Tapes were conducted at Henson Studios in Los Angeles and Gang Studios in Paris, in spaces where much of Random Access Memories was recorded, and where the collaborators worked. Along with each interview, the episodes contain archival footage and never before seen studio footage of Daft Punk as they crafted what became their final album.
The first episode of the Memory Tapesseries launched with Julian Casablancas to coincide with the 10th anniversary edition of Random Access Memories, and today Memory Tapes Episode 2with Chilly Gonazales is unveiled. Upcoming episodes will feature Panda Bear, DJ Falcon, Todd Edwards, Pharell Williams, Nile Rodgers and Paul Williams & Chris Caswell.
