Last year, Pharrell Williams and Daft Punk unleashed a surprising left turn with the instrumentally-driven disco number “Get Lucky.” It was a great return for both Daft Punk and Pharrell, who had been quiet for awhile leading up to it.
Pharrell’s career, meanwhile, has rebounded thanks to the song, with “Happy” now making the rounds. But it’s a second collaboration between Daft Punk and Pharrell that’s got my ears perked.
It’s another 70s throwback track, “Gust of Wind,” that once again hits the mark perfectly with a laid-back vibe that sounds as much in the now as in the then; the Daft Punk roboticized vocals return, and the track itself is pure perfection.
It surely creates some excitement for Williams’ album, which is coming up Tuesday.
