    Just over a week before releasing their much-anticipated, five-years-in-the-making, fourth studio album, Random Access Memories, Daft Punk's Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo spoke with Berlin journalist Heiko Hoffman for SPIN about the before, during, and after of making the record, which they term a "super production."
