"All I can say is those guys are geniuses" - Nile Rogers

It all started with Nile Rodgers.

The legendary producer and guitarist, who was a founding member of influential ‘70s disco band Chic, wrote a blog post back in January in which he casually mentioned he’d worked on new Daft Punk music.

“The next time I set foot in Japan, my collaboration with Daft Punk would have started to hit people’s eardrums,” he wrote on Walking on Planet C, a blog detailing Rodgers’ successful bout against cancer.

Not long after that blog post, reports began circulating that Daft Punk had signed a new record deal with Columbia. In February, the deal was confirmed when the French dance duo released a single image depicting the iconic robot helmets of members Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo fused into one. Set on a black background with the Columbia Records logo discreetly in the corner, that image would go on to ignite a firestorm of rumors and misinformation that continue to rage around the revered band.

For the uninitiated, the current hysteria surrounding Daft Punk can seem baffling.
