The robotic duo of Daft Punk beamed down a touching tribute to the funk great Nile Rodgers in a new clip from a film Rodgers first hinted at in February. The hour-long documentary, Nile Rodgers: From Disco To Daft Punk, will tell the legendary musicians story in anticipation of the first new Chic album in 23 years. The clip features Daft Punk in what looks like the same spaceship from Random Access Memories, composing a sweet transmission for their funky collaborator:
WE ARE SENDING YOU THIS TRANSMISSION TO THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR AMAZING SONGS.
YOUR MUSIC CONTINUES TO INSPIRE THE WORLD…
