Producer lays down spoken word part

Giorgio Moroder seemingly went into the studio with Daft Punk recently to record a spoken word piece.

It's been a tough month for disco. The deaths of Robin Gibb and Donna Summer have left fans grief-stricken, robbing the genre of two of its most iconic voices.

Giorgio Moroder, though, is refusing to fade into the night. The legendary producer was invited to speak at the International Music Summit in Ibiza recently, and revealed that he has been recording with Daft Punk.

URB was there, and report that Daft Punk asked Moroder "to go into a vocal booth and speak about his life. In the studio were multiple microphones of various vintages from the 60s to today. When Moroder asked the engineer why they had so many mics, he replied that the mic they would use would depend on what decade of his life he was speaking about. When Moroder asked if anyone would know the difference, the engineer replied 'They will know.'"

In the audience sat Chic guitarist Nile Rodgers, who of course has also been linked with Daft Punk's new album.

The Italian born producer has hinted at a number of new projects. FACT pointed fans towards a Giorgio Moroder quote recently, indicating that the disco icon was planning a series of fresh recordings.

"I'm probably going to do some songs featuring a singer - a female or group. I like to work with female singers, which I've done a lot in my life. Rihanna would be my favourite, also Nicki Minaj would be great - those are the top girls who I would like to work with."
