Taking a bit of an Interview Magazine approach, CR Fashion Book, the magazine by ex French Vogue editor in chief Carine Roitfeld, asked singer and model Sky Ferreira to sit down with French electronic duo Daft Punk in Los Angeles. Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter are wearing custom tuxedos by Saint Laurent and are photographed for the interview in a beautiful ’60s Hollywood home.
What is the essence of the album?
This album is about technology going towards humanity, in a world where humanity is going towards technology. We tried to capture robotic emotions with music, replacing this time our electronic machines by real human beings.
What was the most difficult aspect of realizing the album?
Making this album was difficult and challenging in an exciting way, but that is the nature of these empirical musical experimentations. We tried to do some things we had never done in a studio. We wanted to learn techniques we did not know. We did not want to take the easy route. But somehow, the difficult parts of the entire creative process are what made the journey really worth it.
